How to Fix Common Baking Disasters

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you enjoyed a safe and happy new year's eve celebration. For the new year I want to get everyone off on the right foot in regards to baking at different altitudes and in different climates. Instead of posting my Wacataya Wednesday post once a month I will start the year off with a 7 week progressive post on how to fix common baking disasters.
The idea for this progressive post came to me as I was reminiscing about one of my visits to Bolivia. Before one of my visits to Bolivia to see my sisters-in-law I decided to put together a little hand-made recipe booklet as a gift for them. The booklet contained some of my family's favorite baked treats that my in-laws had enjoyed me making for them over the years. I chose beautiful paper, typed up each recipe with care and hand-bound the booklet with ribbon and decorations.
To read more about what happened when I arrived in La Paz and tried to recreate those recipes for my in-laws visit my food blog.
Then join me each Wednesday through February 13, 2013 as I discuss: Flour, Leavening Agents, Fats, Eggs, Sweeteners and Liquids/Dairy. Happy New Year!
