Brown Butter Croissants-4 Hi, I’m Anne. I’m 13 16 and I like to make things. Food, baskets, websites, desserts (I know that's food but really...) -in short, anything.

This is for anyone who needs to laugh. Or at least, I hope it makes you laugh and not doubt humanity.

This week, not only have I been busy, but I’ve failed multiple times in my quest to develop a recipe, and even failed at following a recipe. Now, you might be thinking How in the world does anyone fail at following a recipe? but I’ve got an excuse. In fact, I’ll offer three excuses.

Excuse 1: Following recipes is hard.
Excuse 2: Ideas pop into my head. A lot of ideas pop into my head.
Excuse 3: I have better things to do.


Allow me to elaborate. Following recipes is really really really really really x100000002 hard. It’s become a habit to change recipes. Even perfectly perfectly perfectly good ones like Izy’s Swedish Chocolate Cake. You see, a whole chocolate cake lying in my fridge for the whole week is not a good idea. Every study break will become a Let’s eat cake! break. So I decided to make it smaller. Let’s just leave it as it didn’t work

Next: A lot of ideas pop into my head. Can we just say a lot? I was going to make a version of pumpkin bread, but we didn’t have pumpkin. Mistake numero deux: I decided to make pumpkin spice macarons. Lesson 1: Don’t make macarons if you don’t have time to make it again, especially if you’re using up the last of your pumpkin spice.

Excuse 3: I have better things to do. This goes back to excuse 1. I kinda did the one thing that was forbidden for that cake I overbaked it i.e. it ended up chocolaty, but still a fail :(


So please do excuse the absense of a recipe this time around. Life is getting fast. A blink, a day. A nap, a week. I would put some links on here, but I’ve seen so many great recipes + photos + posts this week that I can’t find them all for a stupid fear of missing someone.

Hopefully, this post was slightly amusing -I mean, what’s not funny about watching a high schooler slowly fail at mixing random things together?

I think I need to put a grape in the microwave now. (for those of you that haven’t ever heard of that {where have you been?}, putting a grape in the microwave creates a plasma, i.e. very bright light. although, I dunno if it’ll work :|)

    I know what you mean. I’ve been trying to get a cookie recipe right for my blog the past 3 weeks with many failures. I think today is the day I am going to make it right. And yes, your post made me laugh, and I must say, feel a bit better to know I am not the only one failing on the planet. Take care…and keep on baking!
