Tomorrow marks the hubby’s last day at his current job before heading to Apple in early September. In typical Swiss fashion, where you are expected to bring your own birthday cake on your special day, I got busy baking treats for him to take to work. I’d love to share some recipes with you but so far, it’s been nothing but an epic fail.
The cookies ended up tasting like cardboard and only the kids will drop their standards low enough to eat them. Fruit & Nut Loaf completely fell apart but I shoved it back in the loaf pan to bake for another ten and it seems to have survived…barely.
And the muffins…well…
Note to self: don’t be silly enough to think that greasing the muffin pan is actually a reasonable substitute when out of paper liners. Just don’t.
And now for a little game!
I will really miss a few things from my European kitchen…most of them located in this photo below. Can you tell me where my beautifully hidden fridge, microwave and steamer oven are? I will randomly select one entry from the correct responses and mail the lucky winner some delicious Swiss chocolate! Contest closes at 12 noon (PST) on Tuesday, August 17.
