I’ve been weeding the picture books at my branch and came across this gem the other day. I forget what it was called, but it doesn’t matter because it’s so terrible. This is the first picture in the book.
Pretty shocking if you’re not prepared for it, which I was not. The worst part is that it’s in Children’s Catalog (a big collection of books that libraries are supposed to have in their core collections), so I can’t get rid of it!
In other news, I stumbled on this book at the library as well, which I was very excited about:
I christened the new house with some baked goods over the weekend – 1 Boston Cream Pie and a batch of Johnnycakes (pancakes made with corn meal). This picture is from Google, but mine basically looked just like it, except I had the ganache on the sides as well. Havne’t unpacked the camera yet. The cake was okay but could have been better (whenever I make cake from scratch, there’s always an issue. This time, the cake came out too dense.) Same for the Johnnycakes. They tasted okay but the recipe made about a million of them, so while I was making them, I let the finished ones sit in the oven. When we finally ate them, they were a little rubbery. Sort of disappointing.
Although I don’t always have the best sticktoitiveness, I will never give up on baking, no matter how mediocre my creations end up!
