Baked with love

No matter how good my intentions had been, the baked-til-golden-brown version appeared to be nothing more than a flaky biscuit.

  1. Don’t take this wrong, but the title of a Shakespearean comedy immediately came to mind -- Much Ado About Nothing. I am particularly referring to the Japanese video and not the blog post itself. We once had a swirl in the marble of our bathtub enclosure that I felt could have been seen as the face of Jesus, but we never conducted any tours to view it.
