Some of my favorite memories are made while baking with my kiddos. Baking is one of my favorite hobbies. It’s relaxing for me to spend time making goodies with and for my family.

Creating a baking station in your kitchen is simple to do and keeps all of the needed items in one space for easy access. Our baking station is our kitchen island, and we keep all of the tools necessary for baking in the cupboards and drawers. You could easily create a baking station in a specific cabinet, or an area that you set aside in your pantry.

Baking Ingredients

We keep items such as flour and sugar on the counter in sealed containers. Baking ingredients such as baking soda, baking powder, and vanilla are stored in a separate cupboard space since they are used in other recipes, as well.

Baking Recipes

In another post, I talked about putting together a recipe binder. You can also use this idea to create a recipe binder specifically for your baking recipes. Keeping all of your family favorites in one place will make it simple to find them when the urge to bake strikes you. You can store the binder in your baking station for easy access.

By creating a baking station, you can keep all of your tools in one place. Choose a space in your kitchen or pantry that works for you and set it up to make your baking items easily accessible.

Until next time,
