Project Dissertation

I moved to this fabulous city three years ago mainly to; be near an airport for travel, be able to not trade my stilletos for trainers, and to finish my doctoral studies in four years. Yes, that pretty much sums up my priorities at 30. So now I am ABD with nine months to go and San Francisco is no easy city to ignore. Although, I would argue that each experience that deters my academic writing is really just needed inspiration. Welcome and I hope you enjoy...

My friend says that, "with baking there's rules." This after realizing I couldn't make pancakes for breakfast because there was no krusteux mix, or bisquick, and the Betty Crocker cookbook asked for real buttermilk in their recipe (ick!).

So, I looked at the ripe banannas sitting in the fruitbowl and thought how hard can it be? So, I decided to make a banana bread except...I didn'thave enough flour, I don't know if the flour was self rising or not so I went ahead and added the baking powder anyway, and well, I couldn't find the pan my roomate usually uses. It is not really a special pan, just a boring glass and sort of rectangular pan.

Anyway, I decided to use a prettier, bundt pan with elaborate designs for my baking. It wasn't until I took it out of the oven and tried to turn it over onto a plate that I realized maybe, the elaborately designed bundt pan was not meant for banana walnut bread?

Fortunately, my friend suggested I let it cool and then managed to extract it from the pan. So here it is, my lovely bundt cake-- that looks a lot better than it taste. Hey, who knew you had to follow recipes...
