Hi there! I hope you’re having a great start to your week! I’m dragging today because I watched the Oscars last night and I thought they would never. ever. end. Also, Noah woke me up a couple of times last night so needless to say, today, I’m tired!
I can’t wait to share my next recipe with you! I haven’t yet decided what to call it, but last week Stef from The Cupcake Project posted her recipe for Chocolate Potato Chip PMS Pie and suddenly visions of chocolate chip cookies and potato chip pie crust were dancing in my head- with Ruffles of course! I would love to crank this pie right out and post it today but our kitchen floor is currently being renovated, by Matt, so I won’t have full access to my oven for a few days. Sigh. Bear with me, please? It’s coming very soon, I promise, and it will be worth it when it arrives!
Now, on to the “meat” of this post if you will. I am a self-taught baker and cook. I’ve learned a lot over the years that I’ve picked up from family members, in books or on the internet and from personal experience. I think that the most important lesson I’ve taken from all I’ve learned is: failure. Recipes fail due to the recipe or more often that not, my error. Every thing that I cook or bake will not always be perfect or turn out the way I’d wish. My chicken may be underdone and then when I cook it more then it will inevitably come out dry, I may forget to add the leavening to a cake, the sauce may not thicken like it’s supposed to or maybe my butter is too soft or too cold for my frosting. The list really can go on and on. With every failure comes a lesson to be learned. I try to listen to my instincts. They rarely steer me wrong. Mainly, though, I’m not perfect (though I really try to be when it comes to my cooking and baking).
Here at Babydoll Bakes, I will always endeavor to share the best recipes with you time and again. If you try a recipe and something doesn’t come out right, let me know and we’ll try to figure it out together. I would love to hear your feedback! I also want you to know that I appreciate your being here and sharing in this experience with me. Without you, I couldn’t be here!
Thanks for reading! I’ll be back very soon to share more delicious eats! Until then, happy baking!
