Mmmmm. Pizza. Ok, ok… I work in a pizza place so it is not usually my first go to when making dinner. But I was at the grocery store and came across this dough:
I remember when I was little I used to make cookies from scratch all the time! I used to love it and often my moms friends would ask me to make them some too! I was the neighborhood baker.
It has been a while since I made cookies and I have to say it was quite reminiscful. Although I forgot that I used to make them in Florida and today (obviously) I made them in Denver… I forgot to change the recipe for altitude so they came out pretty flat, but they still taste delicious so that’s all that matters.
I am not particularly a baker, although I do enjoy cooking. But today’s thing I chose to check off my list of 365 things was bake a cake. Nothing from scratch… That might be a disaster. So I started with this:
The interesting thing is, I’ve never baked a cake in altitude so I had to consider the elevation and add some extra flour and subtract some of the vegetable oil out. That was a little terrifying. I thought “this cake is never going to rise correctly”. But low and behold… Out of the oven it came, pretty darn perfect.
