Lessons In Baking: Smell the Ingredients

   Yesterday I made brownies.  And they failed.  They came out smelling like play dough.  Weird.  One of the braver of us reported that they tasted like the stuff too.  Eww.  So why?  I make them from a box.  It’s one of the few things I use a box mix for and it has been a hit for years now.  So was the mix old or maybe a bad batch.  That is what we were thinking until I thought to smell the oil I had used.  Sure enough that was it.  So today's lesson in baking is to smell your ingredients.  Have you had any baking fails or wins lately?
