Believe it or not, but forgetting that you’re cooking or baking is one of the most common mistakes home bakers make. It is easy to fall down the rabbit hole while scrolling your social media feeds or even getting lost in a great show. However, losing track of time is a mistake that will lead to burned dishes and a dirty oven.
Instead of opening yourself up for distractions, focus all of your attention on the tasks in front of you. Write down your recipe instead of keeping it on your phone. Cut off the TV, and perhaps think about cleaning up the kitchen while you wait to keep yourself occupied instead.
