Weekly Resolution: Be a Better Baker

How did it go with the red lipstick this week? I had a great time glamming it up through the heat wave, cold snap and misty day we had this week.

Resolution for next week: Be a better baker.

I'm on the hook for making cranberry bread and apple pie for Thanksgiving. Trouble is: I'm not that good with an oven. I'm a great cook but baking doesn't come easy. I've ruined countless recipes with measurement mix ups.

Over the weekend and next week, I'm going to do my best to follow recipes exactly and bake like a regular Betty Crocker.

I'm a horrible baker, too. I think it's all in the measuring. Scoop your flour into the measuring cup with a spoon and level off, instead of dipping the cup in. Do you have a thermometer in your oven? That helps to make sure the temp is accurate! For the pie - make sure the ingredients are all super cold and let it chill out in the fridge before rolling out. I have good luck using eggbeater's (blog) recipe for pie crust. Good luck!
