Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence
Husband and I decided to cancel Hulu. Now I have to go make sure our DVR will record all our returning shows this fall. The list is long.
Feeling of accomplishment: finally finishing a bottle of bath and body works lotion
Did you know that weekends (days not designated as being part of the standard work week) did not exist until 1938! They were established by a Congressional Act called the Fair Labor Standards Act. This act also established a minimum wage, restricted child labor and established a 34 hour work week (yeah right!).
Have you ever wondered why a recipe instructs that you mix all dry ingredients first then add the liquids? I have. Why not just dump it all in?
Mixing the ingredients dry first keeps ingredients like baking powder from reacting until the end of the mixing process once the liquids are added.
Also, some recipes recommend you mix briefly or just until the ingredients are moistened. This minimizes the escape of the gas from the batter. The longer you mix, the more gas escapes!
Keep this in mind the next time you make biscuits!!!
