Recipes and Cooking for Special Diets

Read the recipe carefully. Some people have a great baker’s intuition and can modify a recipe well, knowing how different ingredients mix in flavour and consistency. For those who do not have a baker’s intuition, try to follow the recipe closely for best results.

Baking well is a skill that can be learned through practice, so if it does not work the first time, try again. Consider this especially if baking food for a special diet, like lactose or gluten free, vegan or diabetic. Often the substitute ingredients in a special diet do not bake as a mainstream recipe would, and the recipes for such diets should be followed closely.

Consider, also, the health benefits of home cooking or baking, especially for a special diet. Home cooking is often the best way to ensure that the needs of a special diet are met and that you have all the nutrition you need.

Good Baking Supplies

Use an apron. Cooking can be messy work, especially when baking with a blend of several different ingredients. A good apron helps keep clothing clean, and is convenient for quickly wiping or drying hands. A good apron will also have large pockets in it, which are not just fashionable, but useful.

Invest in the proper utensils. Baking or cooking from a recipe often involves precise ingredient measurements, and proper utensils are essential. Depending on the desired recipe, try beginning with this basic list of utensils:

  • measuring spoons
  • measuring cups
  • mixing bowls
  • hand mixer or counter-top mixer
  • whisk (sometimes comes with a mixer)
  • rolling pin
  • spatula
  • baking spatula
  • stirring spoons
  • paring knife
  • a proper baking dish, bread pan, muffin tray as needed

Homegrown Vegetable Gardens

Consider keeping a garden. In the summertime, a garden in your own backyard can yield enough vegetables to accompany several meals. Different vegetables are in season at various times and in various climates. Do a little research on how and when to grow vegetables of your choice, and in the springtime, take a look at a local nursery for seeds.

In a busy lifestyle, it is sometimes difficult to cook from scratch, or cook at all. But home cooking and baking can be a healthier choice than relying on prepared foods or store-bought goods. Beginner bakers and cooks may want to try a few recipes and consider a few baking a cooking tips.
