I have been unbelievably busy and this blog is what has suffered the most. With moving into this new apartment, I just haven’t had the time to continue any of my projects… I haven’t even moved in my crafting supplies! That’s the depressing part.
At least I have still been baking – not with an amazing success rate though, I’ll admit. The first thing I made were these “Ooey Gooey Peanut Butter Oat bars.” Looking at the ingredients, I thought you really just could not go wrong. Well, the center never set in the oven, so I didn’t really get the bar shape so to say. They still tasted pretty decent, but they are unbelievably sweet and after a couple bites, I had had enough. So despite the winning ingredients, these were just ok. I also forgot to take a picture of them before I threw out the rest of the batch, so here’s the picture from the book. Amazing looking right?
Next I had leftover graham crackers and decided to bake the recipe on the back of the graham cracker box for “Banana Graham Nut Muffins.” They looked good and I adore graham crackers. Although they came out of the oven fully baked and fine textured, again, these muffins just didn’t live up to their potential. I was not impressed. Below is the picture of my actual muffins.
So, hopefully next time I turn on that oven and start to get my baker on, I will finally be able to produce something worthy of copying the recipe out for. As for right now, I am still staring at the picture of those peanut butter bars because it gets me every time. They look so good! Have a great start to your week everyone and I promise I will start posting some more worthy updates this week. I’ll get back on track.
