suckup fail

In Uncategorized on April 9, 2010 at 12:13 am

so today




a week ago…)

i decided

to be

a suckup.

because tomorrow

is parent teacher conferences

and i decided

to be

a suckup

and bake

red wine biscotti.

i was feeling

so good

so kind

so happy

while i happily mixed together

1-1/2 cups flour

2 tablespoons sugar

2 sun-dried tomatoes, soaked in hot water for 20 minutes

freshly ground black pepper


baking powder

1/2 cup red wine

1/4 cup vegetable oil

into a happy-looking

puke-pink dough

studded here and there

with pieces of

sun-dried tomatoes.

hey, it looked good

in the photos.

i even asked

for advice

from the provider

of the recipe.

(recipe is from Pinjing at Too Much Food.)

i’m sorry Pinjing

i did your recipe

absolutely no justice at all.

i’m really




you’ll see why

i fucked it up

just keep reading.

i baked it for 30 minutes

took it out

let it cool

sliced it into generous

yet numerous enough


they were slightly soft

a cross between cookie

and bread.

they smelled good

i guess

not like the rich red wine smell

i was thinking of.

they smelled like


slid them back into the oven

for 17 minutes

then took them out

flipped them

then slid them back in.

my mom came home.

they finished baking


for some reason

i decided to

let them “cool” in the oven.

they overbaked.

they don’t taste at all like red wine.

they taste like burnt croutons.

one thing i know is

i’m not sucking up

to anyone tomorrow.


Have you ever failed at being a suck-up?

  1. They don’t look too burnt! I’d just snap off the browner parts and eat the rest 😉
