try to ignore the mirrored text. yay for free browser-based webcam apps.
Seeing the method/photos/commentary on someone else's blog makes me feel way more reassured and trusting about the recipe they recommend, though. Whereas when it comes from a book, you get maybe a couple sentences of intro/commentary, a perfect result picture/photo (haha, step-by-step, those books are...more expensive), and a supposed assurance of recipe-testing because, yeah, this did make it to print, right? That strange tendency to believe in solid things..
Anyway, enough rambling! The following recipes are both from real books. Like, the book was open while I was cooking! In the kitchen, on the counter, getting splattered by batter! CRAZY, I know.
(I was going to copy the recipe WORD for WORD, but then I realized that was, like, plagiarism. You know, that thing that makes a 10-page paper worthless, screws your academic record up forever, bad-bad-bad, etc. hmmmmm. Err I'm no awesome recipe writer, so this is still going to be sort of word-for-word, and then where there are more words, i'll use my own. oookay.)
