This is me when I'm not doing the stuff for my regular blog. That means not necessarily as careful, not necessarily as able to do things, lots of things could be different than usual. I don't do trigger warnings, and I have genuine well thought out reasons that aren't just some kind of callous BS.
[Dark brown, round cookies on a cookie sheet, then on a drying rack.]
These are eggless carob cookies I made in the middle of the night. I’m not allergic or anything, I just found carob powder in the cabinet and no eggs in the fridge and I’m not able to shop even if anything was open. I used vanilla yogurt instead of eggs, and carob powder instead of chocolate chips, in a chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Carob makes the consistency different but they turned out amazing anyway, really soft and chewy with only a slight hardness around the outside. And since it was eggless I was able to eat the dough straight, and that was good too. ^_^
Baking is like… the only thing I’m capable of doing right in a kitchen without fucking it up. (By fucking it up, I mean setting the kitchen and/or myself on fire, and things on that level of screwiness.) And I mean even fairly complicated yeast-bread stuff, my skills have always been excellent for my level of experience (as in, other people were begging me to bake them stuff ever since I started, even if they had been baking all their lives, and people who never lie to me about my abilities told me I’m really good). Unfortunately I don’t have the energy to bake often, much less the complicated shit, but when I do, I love doing it. And I love eating, and giving out to other people, the result.
