I can’t bake…

22 May
Have I mentioned this before? It’s true…I am a TERRIBLE baker. Bread? Sure…I can stick the ingredients in a bread maker, and “bake” away…but anything else? Nope.

I was making chocolate chip cookies, but 3/4 of the way through the recipe it called for Old Fashioned Oats. Oops…I guess I was making Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. The dough didn’t look right (even though I swear I followed the directions), and sure enough…this was the result:

And they scooped up off the pan so nicely (can you hear my sarcasm?)….
And for Lara & Greg…just to let you know….I did NOT attempt to veganize this recipe. I cheated and used eggs…and I STILL failed. Lesson learned–DON’T BAKE.

    Oh, I LOVE to bake, because I'm a sugar-holic- anything and everything baking, so that's why I'm trying to learn how “to cook”. But, I could bake all day- just ask Ben!! Keep practicing!

    I just don't understand why you and baking don't get along. I can't cook, but I can make cookies, and I figure if I can do it than anyone can do it?! Maybe next week I can teach you how to make cookies and you can teach me how to make quinoa soup. 🙂
