** ~HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY CANUCKETTE'S CREATIONS!!!!~**
It's my birthday and I'll dance if I want to, sing if I want to!!! But since it's my blogs birthday I won't steal the show lol :p One year ago today this sweet little blog was born, and I can't believe that it's still going strong and getting stronger every day! I love that it's helping both me and others, keeps my brain sharp and brings yummy goodness to all my lovely readers :) Not to mention it has forced me out of my box in regards to risks I take in the kitchen. You can't learn and expand your repertoire by playing safe right?
So I thought it would be fun to reminisce about what I've done it the past year, and where I hope to go in the next year :) I'll be the first to admit that I've had my fair share of fails this year, the most memorable would have to be the "brick" I baked. My first attempt at Whole Wheat Honey Loaf was a complete and utter disaster lol, the yeast didn't activate but I thought it had. So of course after it came out of the oven it was flat and very dense, but I wasn't going to let that detour me! I gave it a go again the next day and it turned out exactly as it was supposed to :D Lesson learned, like the post is appropriately named "with baking there is no fail, only lessons to be turned". Just because something doesn't turn out the way you intend doesn't mean you should give up, always remember that while in the kitchen ;) Probably the most trouble I've had while on my journey is with activating yeast, it's such a temperamental product that you have to make sure all the aspects are perfect. If at first you don't succeed, try again, and that is a kitchen motto! Another lesson I'm taking from this year is never be afraid of a product that you haven't used before. I had never baked with pumpkin puree before and most thought the cupcakes sounded weird, but boy do they taste good! For right now let's get to the birthday treat I made for today's blog, and no it's not cake not even a dessert technically but I made it a little sweet ;) Just like me lol :p
