One of my favorite things to do is bake. I love making cookies, cakes, brownies, and pies; it just makes me happy. My favorite thing to make is cupcakes because I like to make them look really cute. I enjoy the baking and the decorating but I don’t really like the eating part. However, it is the exact opposite with salty and savory foods, I am not that into making them, but I sure do enjoy eating them. Now I’m not saying that I hate sweets or I’m bad at baking. I just never really crave sweets, only occasionally. I would much rather have some french fries than have a cookie. I like salty and savory a lot more than sweet. Whenever I do eat sweet foods I usually mix them with something salty. Salty foods and chocolate are a very delicious combination. Some of my favorite combinations include: Popcorn and oreos, plain potato chips and chocolate cake, and salted peanuts and milk chocolate. Salt really just compliments everything, even fruit and vegetables. You can’t mix sugar with everything and make it taste good. For example, steak, you can’t put sugar on a steak or else it will taste awful, but salt makes steak taste delicious. Salty foods are just superior to sweet foods. If they were to fight salt would totally demolish sugar. It’s weird that I feel this way because I think that I am a pretty sweet person and I only feel salty every now and then. Maybe the foods have an opposite effect on your mood. I don’t know about you, but I thought that was pretty funny.
