It’s no secret that baking has become a massive trend while everyone is spending more time at home.
Whether you’ve just gotten your hands on your very first sourdough starter or you’re finally taking a stab at that viral cookie recipe, now’s the time to try — and fail — to make all those baked goods you always said you would.
