It has been irking me beyond measure ever since I saw an episode of Desperate Housewives when Bree van de Kamp was baby-sitting Lynette’s kids, and she somehow expected more respect for the fact that she had made cookies “from scratch.”
This is quite some admission. We should be shunning Wisteria Lane’s very own domestic goddess for the tacit admission that she sometimes uses shake-and-bake rather than dishing out the kudos for making cookies from scratch.
I mean cookies! Nothing too tricky about cookies!
I have just been making bananananana bread from scratch, and the whole house is alive with the smell.
My ill-gotten eBay profits have been squandered this month on a knock-down breadmaker which should be delivered shortly. Making bread by hand is not terribly difficult, but it is rather messy. Hopefully the breadmaker, complete with with timer and last minute fruit-adding-in-device will be clean and efficient. And an added incentive for timeous awakening.
