I have been waaaaay off my game lately. In and out of the kitchen. I’ve had a headache for days. I’m congested. My taste buds are off.
In the kitchen, I am equally disastrous. The only reason I have not set off the fire alarms is that they apparently did not have functioning batteries. I have certainly created enough smoke.
pot holder + 550°F oven + 30 minutes = waking up from a quick nap on the couch and thinking that there is a dragon loose in the house
The recipes I’ve tried may have been to blame as well. A one-banana bread that smelled great but was incredibly dry. A quick-bake layer cake that stuck to the pan, was lopsided, and was tooth-achingly sweet. Even the frosting was terrible, separating no matter how gently I cooled it and how vigorously I stirred.
I hope to get back soon.
