I’ve been trying to get my sister into baking especially because she’s vegan and she often forgets to check the ingredient list on packages. When you have dietary restrictions, it’s sometimes easier to DIY yourself since you have more control over the ingredients and the products. Since baking is pretty scientific, one would assume that it would come naturally to my science-minded sister [with a legit science occupation] and that it would be the perfect new hobby for her.
We made these vegan chocolate avocado cookies together recently but it was a little stressful for me. No! Stop measuring it like that! Don’t mix it like that. STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING! I’m normally not a nag like that but I think it’s just one of those annoying things you do when you’re around your [younger] siblings.
If baked goods were potentially explosive [Edit: Wait…], she would probably be a little more careful about substitutions and measurements…etc. The next time we bake together, I’ll have to explain things like a lab procedure, put the soy milk in pipettes, and weigh the ingredients like the classically trained pastry chefs do.
