Have you ever tried making brownies from scratch? A few days ago I tried making a batch of Mark Bittman’s brownies. It felt like the last time I could take time to bake or cook much before the wedding. Our friends and family have already started coming into town and it doesn’t leave a lot of free time. But the excitement and fun makes up for the downtime, of course.
So, how did those brownies taste? Well, funny you should ask. As they were cooling I was being an expert at life, and as I shook my salt shaker to salt the pasta water the top popped off, with salt landing all over the counter and the brownies. I tried pretending I could just dust those tiny mounds of salt off, but even faking it they were terrible. Moral of the story: don’t let me use the salt shaker, or at least don’t let me do so near any baked things.
