I play in the kitchen quite a bit. I experiment like a mad scientist in there sometimes. I get these wild ideas and start looking through my pantry maybe comparing some notes from books or my journals and just dig in to see what I can cook or bake up. I’m experienced enough that generally speaking things turn out well and nothing goes to waste. Occasionally recipes don’t turn out exactly as I had planned but rarely, very rarely, is something completely inedible.
These cookies were good enough to eat, but were a crumbly mess when we did eat them. I’ll tinker with the recipe some more soon and maybe get something worth sharing with you all. Thankfully Jeff and a few other folks never mind being guinea pigs for my kitchen whims.
Things are generally in various stages of infusing, steeping, or being bottled to in the kitchen. The dandelion tincture started weeks ago was strained and sealed for our medicine cabinet recently. The labels might not be fancy or very pretty but permanent markers and masking tape do the job just fine.
What kind of experiments are you conducting in your kitchen?
