Taking a break for a few minutes before heading back to the kitchen to chop veggies for appetizers.
I do not have consistent luck with pie crusts. Good for you for persevering. I just put a bowl with Dutch Oven bread to set overnight on the counter. One more rising (1.5 hours) in the a.m., then pop in the oven and hope it turns out. If so, I'll take that to my friends' house for dinner. If it doesn't turn out, I'll show up with a smile and gratitude. (She said I didn't need to bring anything.)
Baking is always a gamble for me as my oven is very unreliable. It's a cheap one the builder put in the house and I haven't been able to afford to replace it, especially since I don't use the oven all that much.
