::record scratch:: whaaaat?
as ive mentioned countless times before.. i used to generally be a teeeerrible baker. whether choosing the wrong recipe [trying to be healthy or vegan or super fancy] or using an inaccurate oven, or simply forgetting a step..results were usually a fail. simultaneous raw and overcooked. flat. disgusting. texturally ..unsound. but eventually i sorted it out.
unlike a coworker who just yesterday said "i cant bake. its like i have to measure and follow the instructions exactly or something" yeeea. cooking is an art. baking is a science. you do actually have to measure things. but i digress
