Mmmm, honey. I could talk about my favorite sweetener all day, but let's just get to the point:
A Note About the Random
So here's where a 1940's housewife just winged it. She went by feel and didn't treat a recipe like a chemistry experiment. I am not a 1940's housewife. I am an Instruction Follower, and if something doesn't tell me exactly what to do I get a little panicky.
Maybe it's just me, but it seems like we need to be told how to do most things these days. We want exact directions and reassurance that we won’t fail.
Or maybe we just don’t spend as much time in the kitchen with our busy modern lives. Maybe we don’t have the experience to just know these things.
In any event, I went with it and guessed at 1 tsp. vanilla and 2½ cups of flour. It worked out fabulous. This little foray into Not Following Instructions reminded me that I can trust myself. A little bit.
