So, I’ve been kind of sleeping on this blog for… well, a while.
But that’s going to change, I promise! Starting soon, I’ll re-awaken the Land of Midnight Baking with a new series of articles — and some videos.
I’ve never done videos before, and I have no idea how this is going to work, but we’re going to give it a try. I’m starting a YouTube channel, and I’ll be posting videos to accompany some of my blog posts.
Developing my own recipes has never been my forte, so instead, I’m going to review and analyze recipes from my vast collection of cookbooks. You may have noticed that my last post, Lazy-Woman’s Brownies, already started to move the conversation in the direction of recipe reviews. I haven’t abandoned that series, either. I’ll get back to it, once we’re no longer sick of eating brownies.
To kick off this new series, I’m going to review some of the technical challenges from the Great British Bake Off. I realize some blogs have already featured these recipes, but I’m taking a bit of a different tack. I’ll be discussing the tricky aspects of these technical challenges, as well as pointing out how to avoid some common baking pitfalls. I’ll rate the recipes on prep time, taste, and ease of construction.
In the future, I’d like this blog to focus on recipe reviews and helping you find recipes and cookbooks worth your time, rather than trying to re-invent the wheel and posting my own “twists” on recipes you could find a thousand versions of on other blogs.
Think of it as my way of trying to be a zebra in a herd of horses.
