When you have an epic fail, you have three options: Give up, do it again and hope for a different result, or try something different. After an epic fail trying to make pizza dough from scratch, I surrendered my expectations and used a store-bought dough, making an equally delicious flatbread and saving my sanity.
I’ve always baked for other people; not myself. But when I was a little kid, before I baked on my own, my dad would bake peanut butter chocolate chip cookies for me, because they were my favorite. So I decided to make cookies for me.
