Recipe blogs are all well and good for those among us who can cook.
Or can at least make pretty food.
The Prude doesn't do pretty food.
Any recipe blog she published would be categorized 'bloopers'.
Below is the proof.
The Prude's mother made something called 'apple slices'
Like apple pie, but bigger, more in the parallelogram family, and capable
of feeding more people.
The Prude, having many people to feed recently, decided to give it a try.
The immediate problem stemmed from The Prude's resistance to making homemade pie crusts.
Why bother when the rotund little doughy guy in the tall white hat makes those clever rolls of crust?
The Prude decided to stick with what she knows.
Inserting round shapes into rectangular containers takes some ingenuity.
But she persisted.
Something was clearly wrong.
The Prude decided to mush up the seams a bit
and hope that the baking process would add beauty.
But Prudes never give into despair. This one applied the panacea
used by cooks of ugly baked goods through the ages.
