Warning: This post was published more than 5 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 5 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
My previously celebrated brownie-baking skills are being severely questioned today, after two successive batches, being made for friends, ended up a little “crispy”, as Wendy would say.
Luckily, I was (partially) saved from an Alfred-esque reputation by Asda’s in store bakery… though it’s a crying shame that a whole kilo of chocolate was wasted in my failed efforts!
