Yesterday’s recipe made me sad. The picture of the baked confection on the blog was so pretty and it looked so yummy and just had great potential; but, it wasn’t so yummy. It was Cinnamon Braid Bread.
Honestly, I thought the hard part would be getting the bread to look like that. That wasn’t hard, the blogger provides good step-by-step pics to achieve this pretty braid. However, the flavor was lacking. I know I am from the South and people down here use way too much butter (and normally I am all for cutting down/out the fat); but y’all. This bread needs alotta butter. I think it calls for 1/2 of a stick and I told my mom next time I was using a whole stick of butter, adding brown sugar, and using less cinnamon. Don’t judge me.
Now for today’s recipe. First off, today I was feeling pretty sick. Like did not want to bake. I figured my blogger friends would understand if I took the day off, so I didn’t sweat it too much.
Then. This evening, around 8 pm, I was on the phone with my boy friend, MM. He asks, “what’d you cook today?” I proceeded to explain that I did not feel well and did not make anything. His response, “so you’re breaking your resolution?”
gosh. when you guilt-trip me like that I guess I have to fix something.
