to bake or not to bake?

Dilemma: when you are living in an apartment where you don't really have to pay the electricity bill, its tempting to start baking and cooking etc. - which yes it is fun and if I could get paid to bake all day I would. trust me.

NOW im in the mood to bake everything- even simple things like cookies and bread, but should I?? The thing with baking is time, money, and time...Its 10X easier to run over to the grocery store and pick up a loaf of ciabatta for a measly $2 rather than wait for the yeast to rise, etc, etc...

but OH the JOY in baking, in knowing what goes into your food, and learning the techniques- so worth it! maybe one day I will own a bakery like Meryl Streep in the movie It's Complicated, for now I'll just keep dreaming.
