Impressive, isn't it? Really makes you want to trust me and read more, right?
So I am busily mixing away, having all kinds of fun thoughts about what I might have to say, and thinking about pictures I could take, and I am aaaalllll kinds of impressed with myself-- "I'm pretty clever, look at my beautiful scones, aren't I a genius for identifying the 'shaggy' stage of dough, look how pretty they are," et cetera, et cetera. I get to the point where I have shaped the dough, put it in the freezer, and I am starting to put the ingredients away, when I realize that I am holding an ingredient in my hand that I definitely did NOT put in the dough. I stop, re-check the recipe, and realize that I am a complete moron.
I forgot to put sugar in my scones.
So, c'est la vie, right? I was never going to be one of those people who only posted the best recipes-- I feel like if a recipe is too complicated, or it doesn't turn out well, then those things are just as interesting in their own way as the recipes that are truly awesome. So here I am-- forgotten sugar and all. In my defense, it has been a long time since I've done something that ridiculous. I am actually pretty nervous about sending my words out into the interwebs, which is a fairly major distraction. :)
|They LOOK like scones...but do they TASTE like scones?|
Things about me: I teach, I am a graduate student, I am a wife and a mother. I bake because it is fun for me, which a lot of people don't get. I am sure there is a psychological study to be done that correlates the pleasure you get from baking with having control over your environment-- I am Type A, and I don't relinquish control easily or well. I am about to turn 30. It's freaking me out. I feel like my friends are tired of seeing pictures of my cupcakes on Facebook, so I decided to start this blog instead. I'm not sure what will actually come of it, but we'll see, right? Right. :)
UPDATE: Ok, so they look great, they are glazed...and they totally taste like biscuits. Weird, orange-y biscuits. With sugar on them. Oh well. Hopefully the three-year-old will like them. :)
