There’s just nothing like the smell of freshly baked cookies, cakes or muffins as they fill your kitchen with their homey wonderfulness. It’s an olfactory smorgasbord of pleasure that makes the anticipation for the magic cooking up in your oven reach almost painful heights.

A substitute just does not exist in this world for fresh, home-baked goods. The stuff in the stores might seem like they can compare, but between the weird and unpronounceable chemicals they’re packed with to keep them shelf stable, the unhealthy (and wholly unnecessary) animal products that bind them together, and the sugar and oils of dubious origin that they boast, store-bought is like the Mega Blocks to the straight-from-your-oven Legos. They just aren’t the same.
