It’s snowing and it just won’t stop. I don’t have any of my own pretty photos for you because it’s still mid-blizzard and has been since Sunday! But here are a couple that give you a taste.
Meanwhile, I’ve been messing up recipes left and right. Yesterday I wanted to make just a little more of Nancy’s buttercrunch, so I halved the recipe and burned it. I shouldn’t have tried to mess with perfection!
And just now, I was trying to make this peanut butter fudge that looked so easy and so appealing, and I burned it. I forgot and put it on the only burner that heats up way too hot and walked away for two minutes – burned!
I have a couple cakes to bake for a friend tomorrow, so here’s hoping my baking bad luck is at an end!
Do you ever have those stretches of recipes not working right, or your brain not working right? It used to happen to me a lot more often, before I learned I need to read the whole recipe through before I start, not as I’m going along. Now it happens a lot less, but man, it still makes me a little grouchy!
So, because I’m going stir crazy and need about one ingredient for each of the recipes I’m dying to make, Michael is taking me to the grocery store. If we’re not back in a few hours, call the search party!
