My favorite thing to “cook” doesn’t really involved cooking at all; I much prefer to bake.
And if I am going to bake, I like to bake bread.
This is less about the process than it is about the end result, though!
I’ve written before about how I cook because I like to eat, not because I particularly like to cook.
And baking is largely the same way; I got into yeast baking as a teenager because I wanted to eat more homemade bread.
(How do you get to eat more homemade bread? Make it yourself!)
So. My favorite thing to eat is fresh yeasted baked goods, ergo that would be my favorite thing to bake.
If we get even more specific, I might say that my grandma’s apricot sweet rolls are my favorite thing to bake and eat.
If we stick strictly with cooking….boy, I don’t know! I’d put quesadillas up there pretty high because:
- they’re easy
- they’re Tex-Mex (my favorite!)
- they can go with guacamole, sour cream, and salsa; three very good sides)
