New Year’s Resolution: LEARN TO BAKE AWESOME COOKIES, CAKES & CUPCAKES, etc. FOR MY 9 GRANDKIDS!
Become known as, in other words, HEART-BAKE (not to be confused with HEART-BREAK of BAKING, as I am now!)…
I’m not gonna sugar-coat it here. I’m admitting that I’ve never been all that and a bag o’ flour good at BAKING.
There. I’ve said it.
But 2012 is gonna change all that.
First, I’m gonna find the BEST recipes for the BEST home-baked COOKIES, CAKES & CUPCAKES, etc… from scratch, by the way.
Second, I’m gonna pastry brush-up on all the BEST BAKING TIPS (things I’ve completely forgotten or overlooked lately, such as: a. bringing ingredients to room temperature; and b. checking my oven temperature accuracy. Duh. Or better said, “Dough”).
Third, I’m gonna hit my oven with my BEST shot (o’ dough & batter) for the next 12 months, working on a project of deliciousness once-per-month.
Yep. I’m stepping up to the platter to hit some recipes out of the paradigm.
Stay pre-heated for my JANUARY Baking Project– SNOWBALLS & SNOWMAN COOKIES.
(And I can use all the help I can get, so if you have any favorite recipes or tips – please let me know!)
