Did you ever get really excited about trying a new recipe? Something from scratch? I'm sure I'm not the only one here. It happened to me last night.
I had a recipe for biscuits and was really excited to try them out last night since the baking time was 10 minutes. I hadn't thought much about dinner but so far, I knew we'd have fresh, fluffy, homemade biscuits!
When I search for recipes online, I like to write the ones I like down so I can save it in my own handwriting (instead of printing it out). It makes me feel like it's more authentic that way, even though I just copied it from some website. But this way, it makes me feel like I can tweek it if I want to and make it my own.
There was a small problem last night because of my handwritten recipe. Instead of writing baking powder, I wrote baking soda. Well, you can only imagine how things turned out: sour!
I made 12 biscuits. And they were so gross I couldn't even look at them and unfortunately I left them on the baking sheet on top of my stove overnight. There they were this morning staring back at me. I had thought about taking a picture to share here, but why. Why would I do that to you.
They really smelled good baking too. My husband came out and was wondering what was baking with that amazing smell. We both ate a biscuit but the tang and bitterness of the baking soda ruined the whole batch. But I am determined to create this batch again using the proper ingredients and share the results with my family. It just has to be different the second time around!
