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.)
In talking the boy out of a (disgusting) cotton candy cake, I walked myself right into a multi-step chocolate chip cookie dough cake instead...
