You know what I love? Starting a baking project in a sparkly, clean kitchen. The housekeepers came today and ours looks pretty spiffy, but I’m hesitant to mess it up because we’re having a special guest this evening – Lizzie’s dog behaviorist, Steve Nicely of Nicely Trained Dogs. The vet recommended we try a few sessions and I’m sort of nervous. I want him to think that Lizzie lives in a nice, clean environment.
In the meantime, here are a few bloggers who made me *almost* re-think my decision not to bake today.
Mary at One Perfect Bite put Kona coffee in her peanut butter cookies. Holy Smokes!
Sue’s Raspberry Chiffon Pie has been taunting me for weeks, as has Gesine’s Best Ever Pie Crust. I have to admit, I’ve been cheating a lot lately and using pre-made. Nobody around here is really picky about pie crust, but I still feel guilty when I don’t make myself. Sheesh.
And finally, there’s Megan’s Triple Chocolate Brownies, a recipe she got from Anna Olson. I’ve never had a dud from Anna Olson (or Megan) and can’t wait to try those.
So here’s to tomorrow’s messy kitchen!
