Truly, and I share this tip with you from the bottom of my heart:
Do NOT just willy-nilly decide to change your blog's template. It WILL fuck you up.
That is my tip for you for today.
Also, I have another tip for you, now that I think about it:
If a recipe calls for baking powder, and you don't have any baking powder, go and GET SOME.
After I pouted in my bed for a while about my self-inflicted template tragedy, I decided to make a banana bread because a) pretty much all we have to eat in the house is a bunch of 4-5 very ripe bananas, and b) making banana bread does not involve a computer or blog template.
It does, however, involve some sort of leavening agent (of which I have none).
I guess after all of those family Passovers and cautionary stories about wandering about in the desert for 40 depressing years, yada yada yada, I'd be really up on the whole leavening thing, but no, here is one instance where listening to a bible story might have helped me.
I now have a piece of what I could call Banana Matzoh, but it is a bit thicker than that so technically it's more of a Banana Brick.
It smells good, though, so I'm still going to eat some of it when I can hack off a chunk.
ps.: Feel free to tell me the blog looks better. I am working on it. Perhaps this will cause me to be more of a minimalist since I can't seem to remember what else I had up here before the tragedy.
