I have on our washer machine what I affectionately call my alien. It's a little XO (give one, get one) laptop. However, we've never consistently managed to make the little wireless network connection work, so it sits on the machine and occasionally I try to use it to access a recipe online.
I get most of my recipes these days from a half dozen food bloggers. Unlike a site like Allrecipes, which has a variety of tasty, tasty foods, but usually substandard photos, most of the food bloggers have this glorious photography that makes eating and the initial preparations into an art form.
For over a week I've been debating the merits of turning on my oven, and usually avoiding it. The temperatures have finally reached summer, and my body is taking its normal time to adjust. Last night wasn't really any better, but I decided to cook. In the morning I made pizza dough from my mother's recipe, and then I made these muffins before bed.
The muffins are really good and would have benefited from either a light flouring of the sprayed pans or actual muffin liners. The muffins are incredibly moist, and so a few of them refused to release cleanly from the pan.
My pizza dough while tasty was horribly misused. In my recollections of what to do and my haste, I did not double check the recipe and proceeded to use the entire batch of dough even though the recipe said to halve the dough before rolling out. Whoops! It was still surprisingly tasty (I didn't use a sauce: just leftover bean spread, bell peppers, feta and ricotta), but so much more bready than I am used to!
