Needless to say, around 4 o'clock today, things were looking a little hairy in Brooklyn...
I'm not sure how things got so off track with this recipe, but I'm guessing it had something to do with:
- the cold I'm battling
- the 5-month old I was entertaining while attempting to bake (dancing, singing, and reading a recipe is a lot to juggle simultaneously!)
- running the dog out for a walk in between the dough-making step and the galette-making step
- trying to get some actual work done
- just plain stupidity (yep. That's a big one.)
However, things are actually looking pretty decent in the oven, after a great deal of perseverance, so maybe all is not lost (well, except for the skirt...) It speaks volumes of a recipe that you can do everything wrong and still have things come out reasonably right, so I guess I give this two times the recommendation that I might otherwise offer, in that it's evidently fool proof as well.
DON'T TAKE THINGS FOR GRANTED THOUGH!
Read this recipe closely and you're likely to have an easier time making these galettes than I had.
