“In life, as in pumpkin bars, it’s a-okay to admit failure, regroup, and press onward toward even more deliciousness.” ~ Laura Biskupic, 2012.
In an effort to consolidate baking requests on a busy week night, Molly doubled a dubious pumpkin bar recipe and ended up with a bumper crop of beautiful chocolate chip pumpkin bars that tasted like scrambled eggs.
We paused for a moment of silence as we surveyed our exhausted kitchen, crowded with pans of cooling egg-bars. We retreated for just a moment into the cool comfort of our dining room and confirmed that we did indeed have a baking failure on our hands. Then we launched an all-out pumpkin blitzkrieg that resulted in one of the more tasty Sunday dinners we’ve experienced.
