I tried baking something, per your suggestions. You guys should have known better.
Thought I'd dip my toe in with a batch of cinnamon rolls, recipe courtesy of the always lovely Paula Deen.
And I screwed it up.
Scalded milk + Add egg = scrambled eggs.
I didn't know that. Gross.
Other things I didn't know:
*Yeast, if it doesn't froth up, isn't worth using.
*Don't start until you know you have all the ingredients.
*Just because I have a container marked "Flour" in my pantry, doesn't mean I actually have flour.
*Flour is actually really important.
*Listening to Louis CK while waiting for dough to rise makes rising dough HILARIOUS.
*Rolling stuff out when you can't see what you're rolling is messy. And fun.
*There IS such a thing as too much butter.
*Cinnamon and Sugar on anything, no matter how much you screw up, is delicious and right. Baking it, and adding frosting is only going to help.
*I can do this. I'm going to do more of this. Lots, lots, lots more.
UPDATE: Well, Maybe not LOTS more. Lennon just told Eric he reminds her of Santa, because, when he talks, his belly jiggles.
