Note when baking...

Just a hint of advice, take care when baking that your baking powder and baking soda aren't too old.   If they are you will end up with a flat, dry hard product that is nothing like the delicious treat you were anticipating!   Ask me how I know!   After opening baking powder is supposed to be good for 6-12 months.   Baking soda is supposed to last indefinitely, but I have had it be useless after 7-8 months.   A good thing to do with baking soda is open a new box every 6 months, place what is remaining of the old box in the refrigerator to absorb odors and the box that was in the fridge, pour down you sink drain.   For more information about both baking powder and baking soda, check out this place.
