My first attempt at baking without recipe an going just off of feeling went so-so, half winning. I consider it a win still, as we did eat both the brownie and banana bread and were quite happy, even if it was not the tastiest of the tasty or mushiest of the mushy. I would have loved to see some more movement in the brownie and less density in the banana bread, but live and learn. I had some sort of basic feeling for what needs to go in them, and especially considering I had some very specific requirements to make it work, all in all I was pretty pleased with myself. But, as they say in Sweden, skam den som ger sig! Roughly translated to; shame on the person who gives up.
I often feel like I want to bake something, and I get these little cravings for sweet things off and on every now and then. The problem is that I am often alone in that feeling, as the guy I live with is not much for sweets. Because of this, and the fact that he intentionally avoid sugar (I try to stick a bit with him on this one, but hey, I'm weak) we never have sugar at home. Also, no sweeteners have ever existed in my house as I feel they're worse than sugar. So lately I have been thinking, I know this is dangerous, and realised that I should try to do things that will hit the spot for me and my sweet cravings, but with no sugar in it so that we both can enjoy it and not have to buy sugar that will not get used. I try to make things both of us will like whenever I make something that he will be there for.
