Food saves the weekend

Sometimes, the day just does NOT go the way you envision or hope. At. All. Last Saturday was one of those days for me.

When that happens, and you want to tear your hair out and scream at the universe, the best thing to do is cook up a storm because keeping physically busy will help dissipate the negative energy AND even better, you get something good to eat at the end.

So I made an apple fritter cake (recipe from King Arthur Flour)

Is there anything better than brown sugar + cinnamon + apples?
Golden deliciousness…
The inside is very pretty, too!

And I also made hot dog buns (because there ain’t nuthin’ nastier than store-bought hot dog rolls). This is also a King Arthur Flour recipe.

I also made raspberry ice cream but didn’t take a photo. Just as well.

Good food makes any crappy situation much more bearable. I hope you’ll try one of the above recipes next time your day turns out sucky!
