It’s been a stress dump week. Actually, some of this has been going on a while but ramped up the fun the last…oh…eight days or so. Including some fun bits of fraud. That’s been handled, but it has the potential to create a little bit of havoc over the next few weeks. But it’s all stuff that can be dealt with.
Sometimes life is complicated.
So what do I do? Walk with Maggie and bake Yesterday I decided to try a different, supposedly chef-tested recipe for chewy chocolate chip cookies that don’t spread too much.
Spoiler alert: They spread and burned.
I knew they would but did I trust my own instincts developed from decades of baking? Nope. And that’s truly what pisses me off. I mean, the cookies aren’t a big deal. I can make decent chocolate chip cookies any time. But I should have trust my own instincts, especially when it’s based on decades of baking experience. I don’t care what pastry school this person has gone to, I know how butter, flour, eggs and leavening agents (in this case, baking soda) work together.
The cookies never had a chance to work as promised. Or at least as I envisioned them.
So the moral of this story? Don’t be me! Trust you’re own instincts and experience.
P.S. Can anyone remove this dark cloud looming over us lately? Just asking
P.S.S. Wizard and I are fine, it’s just been a lot of various things happening. Life does that to all of us at some point.
