Post a day month 2009

Ending on a helpful note|How to make powdered sugar

~This is the twenty-sixth (and last!) post in a series running through the month of June 2009 in which I attempt to post once a day for the month.~

Ever wondered what powdered sugar is? Apparently I have, which is why I knew when I ran out of it on Saturday that it was made of sugar and corn starch. I also knew that flour can be substituted for corn starch if you just double the amount, because the last time I needed corn starch, I found that the cupboard fairy (otherwise known as me) had “organized” our corn starch into the garbage.  So I had to look up a substitute for that.*

For when you feel like quitting…or laughing hysterically

“Well I guess if a person never quit when the going got tough, they’d wouldn’t have anything to regret for the rest of their life…”

Cheers.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh – how did it get to be June 27th already???

Well, just eeking in at the 11th hour, here is my Bakewell Tart for the Daring Bakers June 2009 challenge!

Stupid Marketers…

Holy moly, this was too good to pass up.  It has nothing to do with baking but it is very funny.  When not wielding a pastry cutter and sporting a stunning black outfit, I work in marketing.  It would be fun if jumping around my kitchen making treats paid the bills, but it doesn’t, so when I’m not doing that, I help other people sell stuff.  Which is also fun, just in a different way.

Paula Poundstone also has some choice words about this new venture we’ve all taken on. On Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me. (Click on “Listen Now” – Paula’s hilarity starts at about 5:30).

Cheers.

I am a fairly recent fan of youtube. For quite a while, I didn’t much see the point of wading through other peoples random video postings. Lately, though, I’ve begun to appreciate it more and more for the amazing resource it is.

Yes, it’s come down to this. I’m posting the recipe for tonight’s dinner. To my credit, these are very delicious. And at least it’s not another post of me complaining how hard it is to write something every day.

Cheers.
