A Baking I Will Do
Dudes and Dudettes (and any other -udes or -ettes who may read this blog)! I've neglected you. I know. For shame. And I haven't been writing. Well, at least not in the creative sense. More in the academic, arguing the evils of book banning and censorship sense. Fun, yes but alas, the novel is still unrefined, unedited, and, quite frankly, unfinished.
The past two days have found me in the kitchen, baking. Yes. Baking. Well, and there was that whole roast for dinner thing, but mostly baking. Bread. Muffins (blueberry mint muffins to be precise) and...wait for it...coconut bars.
1 14 oz package of sweetened coconut
1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Spray a bit of oil on an 11" x 13" casserole dish
Mix the coconut and condensed milk together until thoroughly mushy (real technical recipe here...)
Spread into the dish
Bake for 20 minutes or until the edges and tops just start to turn brown. Let cool.
Behold! A pan of coconutty noms for your enjoyment. You know, while you write. Like I should be doing :D
