The beautiful high desert in So Cal!, California
I love to cook, I love to eat and I'm always hungry for something new and exciting! We travel a lot and I enjoy baking and cooking for friends ands family. My husband and I have a hard and fast rule in our house: I don't BBQ and he doesn't bake. Period. Seriously, I walked into the kitchen once to find him baking cookies for me. Now, while the thought was insanely sweet, the actions that I witnessed both scared me and shook my very foundation. Somewhere along the recipe, he left out and/or forgot an ingredient. He didnt "drop" or "roll" or "form" the cookies onto a cookie sheet, he smeared them, as if he were wiping his hand on a towel. And? They baked that way. That wasn't the worst of it. When I walked into the kitchen, he was taking the 'smeared biscuit cookies' straight from the oven into the cookie jar. There was no cooling period, nothing. Straight. Into. The. Cookie. Jar. When I protested and tried to reason with him, he insisted that they did not need to be cooled. *Sigh* Needless to say, the dogs would not eat the 'biscuit cookies', but my best friend tried them. Out of morbid curiosity. Now, I've never had a BBQ experience anything remotely like my husband's baking 'skills', but I had to make that agreement with him to keep him from baking again :)
