As you may know, our kitchen is a type of laboratory. The Bag Lady carefully formulates her recipes, tries, tests, and tweaks them. As in any scientific situation, occasionally there are EXPERIMENTS GONE WRONG!!! Think Frankenstein's monster, Dr. Jekyll's infamous alter ego Mr. Hyde, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and you'll the idea of what I witnessed as I entered the kitchen during the formulative stages of some of the early recipes.
Ohhhh the HORROR!
A MUTANT MUFFIN!!!
Only one thing came to mind...
"Oh my gosh, what is that THING?!?!"
We could only be grateful that the yeast had been killed in the baking process, or we may have had a code red situation on our hands. I can see the headlines now, "City Wiped Out By Enraged,Lumpy,Muffin!" Needless to say, The Bag Lady immediately took this creation back to formula. Within an hour the recipe was recalculated, the thwarting ingredient banished, and a batch of hot, fresh, fluffy, awe-inspiring, delectable, tantalizing muffins emerged from the oven. Why yes, this is a bag meal, and the perfected recipe is ready in less than 30 minutes. Now that's something worth getting out of bed for on chilly Monday morning.
