Simple Baking Supplies and Equipment

I got interested in baking in my early 20s when I still lived with my parents while I went to college. My mom had a fully stocked kitchen and all the right supplies, so it was easy. When I moved out, I never took the time or money to stock my baking supplies and equipment, so I lost my interest. Then when I had kids, I was more aware that I don’t want them eating processed baked goods and neither do I. Besides, nothing beats fresh homemade baked goods out of the oven.

Of course, to be able to bake on the fly, you need a few essential supplies and equipment. You can get way fancier than what I have listed here, but if you stock these things up, you’ll be able to bake a wide variety of items.
