It's awesome when you're mixing red velvet cookies and you realize that your kids used all but 2 drops of your red food coloring making slime this summer. Guess we'll have pink velvet cookies this Christmas.
Cooling pumpkin bread on my window sill like an old lady in a Tom and Jerry cartoon...
I think my oven has some sort of turbo pre-heat. It's not listed as a feature or in any of the supporting materials, but if you put something in before it's 100% up to temp, or increase the temperature mid-bake, it instantly burns the bottom.
Suggestions? (other than just not to do those things! ;) )
I make cookies pretty regularly (in the winter, at least). Most often, they are great. Of course today, when I am making them for something specific AND TOOK THE TIME TO SEPARATE M&Ms INTO TEAM COLORS, they are a huge faily mess.
I just preheated the oven, put the pan in, and it "baked" for 10 minutes before I realized that I preheated the bottom and absentmindedly put the pan in the top.
Sitting here thinking about a workout plan to get Carrie Underwood's legs, and simultaneously thinking about Valentine's Day desserts to make.
I feel like part of the obligation of having a new kitchen is to always have fresh baked goods on the counter. (A basket of green apples may hold its place when muffins are not immediately available.)
