As some of you know, I am a stay-at-home mom with only one kid (well, at least for now). The moment she learned to walk and play on her own, I had more time to do other stuff. So, a year ago, I was inspired by a friend to start baking. From then on, I have been baking at least one a month until it became once a week.
I liked baking because I know exactly what I put into those pastries and goods. I always try to use the best ingredients, especially if it's for my family. But you know, I just realized home-made doesn't necessarily mean cheap, I actually find it more expensive than just getting them from the stores. So I tried to find a way to save. And that's by using more affordable but same quality goods cupcake cups, baking sheets, etc.
I also liked the natural color, it can go well with any event or holiday parties.
Here are the prices I found at Target. The regular price of the large baking cups is $1.99 for 60 pcs. the other brand I saw was $2.69 for 36 pcs. What more if they offer coupons? :D
Besides those three common items I use for baking, I never knew they have cooking bags. If you're wondering where to use it (because I too, do not know), here's what I found on their Youtube account.
I think I going to try that French technique soon - en Papillote. I already feel like a chef! LOL! How easy it's going to be to have home-made frozen dinner you can bake in 10 minutes?! And just like Chef Chris Brown, I'll try it at 400F just to be safe. :)

I was not paid to do a review of the products mentioned above. I was provided samples to facilitate my review but everything was based on my honest opinion of the products.
