I believe I have received the highest compliment of my entire baking career.
From my daughter.
After she tasted a new recipe I made (comprised of butter, brown sugar, milk chocolate and almonds – what’s not to like?!?).
“Wow, Mom! This is really good!! It tastes just like store-bought. Not homemade at all!!!”
Which leaves me to wonder what kind of crappy crap I’ve been making over the years? Or at least this most recent holiday season??!
Ugh! Store-bought sweets are my biggest pet peeve. Ask hubbie who thinks Subway cookies (at least the ones that “bend,” indicating softness–who knew there was a science to that crap?!) are mighty dandy. What’s the matter with that kid? Homemade is always better than store-bought. Always. Unless of course you suck in the kitchen. Love you!!
