I have temporarily lost my mojo. If you’ve seen it, let me know. You ever have one of those periods where you’re just crashing and burning, no matter what you do? On Saturday, when I was trying to finish off one of the dessert trays I was making for a client, I made a batch of Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies, and promptly managed to ruin the batch. At the time, I blamed it on a malfunctioning oven, since I ruined a batch of Cranberry Cinnamon Nut Bars right before the cookies.
Tonight my parents came over for dinner, and I kept it simple with Melt in Your Mouth Sausages over Spaghetti with buttered bread. I decided to take a chance on the oven, and made Chocolate Decadence for dessert. They come out as beautifully sinful as ever, so I chalked up Saturday’s mishaps to an overworked oven, especially since I had been keeping it busy all week.
After my parents left, I needed to make some treats for another dessert tray, and pulled together another batch of Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies, which promptly went into the trash. They looked nothing like the batch I first made last Sunday. I’ve got to dig up the original recipe … now I’ve decided that there must be a typo in the version I retyped, as opposed to something wrong with the oven. That would be good, since it means my mojo would be completely intact.
A year ago today … delicious breakfast memories.
