Don’t you wish you were one of my coworkers? If you didn’t before, you might now.
These tasty lil’ bitches were not hard to make except for ONE thing: homemade whipped cream. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, don’t be like me and make sure you read the recipe all the way through. If you’re like me, still haven’t unpacked your stand mixer and don’t own a hand mixer, prepare to work your muscles. It takes a LONG time before whipped cream takes form with regular man power. After 15 minutes, I was forced to ask my husband for help. We’ve learned now that he’s a human power mixer. It still took another 15 minutes before it was the correct consistency.
Despite that, these were awesome. Pretty rich though so most people could only eat a half at a time.
First new recipe of 2019! But is it brownie or cake? Well, the recipe says brownie but mine ended up more like a cake. A delicious cake. I think my pan was a size too small, thus making the batter thicker. It took twice as long to cook than what the recipe said. I’ve never made icing this way before either so that was another fun treat.
There are almost always bananas in my house. Nine times out of ten, my husband won’t eat them because he knows if they start to brown, I’ll turn them into some sort of delectable treat. Problem is, I’ve made so many now that I’m scouring the internet for new banana treats to try. I’ve found some fun new things that I look forward attempting, but until then, here’s a banana bread with one ingredient I haven’t tried making it with yet.
This bread was incredibly moist. I’m cringing at that word but it’s the best I can think of to describe it. Easy to make recipe.
The second of the fourth of July recipes that annoyed me. This one for a minor reason, the recipe said it would make two loaves, it most certainly does not. So, I ended up with two loaves about 2 inches high. Had I done one loaf, it would have been perfection.
I tried two new recipes this past Fourth of July and was annoyed with both of them. Doesn’t happen often so the fact that I had two less than awesome recipes in a row, had me slapping things around in the kitchen. Both tasted better than they look so that was a small plus.
This recipe requires you to let dough set in the fridge for 30 minutes. 30 minutes did nothing to harden it up. (That’s what she said.) I stuck it in the freezer for 15+ minutes and that seemed to do the trick. EXCEPT, after about 2 minutes of scooping dough, it went right back to being tacky. I was so annoyed that I just started flinging it on the cookie sheet with zero fucks about what it looked like. I was also so annoyed that I didn’t even do the last step of giving it a lemon glaze.
