I'm not much of a baker. I get intimidated by the exactness of measurements and ratios and temperatures and timing so my lovely Kitchen Aid mixer stands unused like a really fancy decoration in my kitchen. That is, until I made my first batch of muffins! Muffins are so easy! They take almost no work and I can practically make them with my eyes closed! Strawberries are in season, I think this will be my new favorite.
When I was a kid I thought the height of pancake art was mickey mouse shaped tan blobs. Oh how short-sighted of me! Could anyone have anticipated the recent renaissance of pancake as artistic medium? At this rate I feel like I'm going to start seeing pancakes at art galleries making political statements and working for social justice.
