Gosh I'm tired. The cakes turned out beautifully and are now wrapped snugly in anticipation of being iced tomorrow. Interestingly, the Bake Even strips added nearly 5 minutes of cook time; I wasn't expecting that. Has anyone else had that experience? As well, all cornbread components are at the ready, and I'm pleased to report that this time after I minced my chile pepper, I did not rub my eye but rather washed my hands for quite a while with warm, soapy water. Chile + eye or nasal membrane = REGRET.
I also pulled the trigger on a good quality food mill. Though I lust for all things Rosle, I just cannot bring myself to even consider spending what they ask. Yikes! So I went with one that got great reviews -OXO- and is much kinder to the wallet. Apple butter is in my near future, and I just couldn't fathom picking out by hand every lingering apple peel in the mix.
This gal is tired as get out. Buona notte!
