Update: I really should still be working on that book. Although, someone else is probably at the printing press now, which means I can’t work anyway, right?
Anyway, so I was reading about the Nazi occupation of Hungary and the extermination of Hungarian Jewry (yeah I know, it’s a regular topic of casual conversation), and naturally I began to want something uplifting. So, I figured (again, naturally) that baking would be the best way to better the mood. I’ve been hankering to bake some raspberry brownies for a while, ever since I had some of that Dagoba roseberry chocolate a couple weeks ago. Yes, I just said, “hankering,” and yes, I am a 40 year old woman living in suburban America circa 1950.
This’ll have to be short, cause I do have to run: end scene.
