The official "Notes to Self" Thread

We have open letters, but there are times it's more of a "note to self" scenario. So I thought I'd give us a place to put them.

I'll start!

Note to Self:
Baking Powder and Baking Soda are not interchangeable. That is why there are 2--because they're completely different things. You actually know this. So why are you so surprised when your baking flops?  ???

Note to self:
Don't go to the grocery store hungry.
Don't go to the Chinese restaurant SO hungry.
Hell, don't go anywhere hungry.

i did this with brittney's surprise birthday cake.  i tried to make it from scratch but accidentally used baking soda instead of powder.  i didn't realize until i had mixed everything together.  i didn't have enough ingredients to throw it out and start again so i tried to remember what you can do to fix it and i thought maybe it was that i had to raise the acidity so i added a little vinegar. 

oh, bad idea.

i'm glad i decided to bake them with sheet pans under them because they ended up growing so big that it would have been everywhere.  the texture was so off.

i ended up having to go with a mix in a pinch since i didn't have time to do the whole scratch thing over again... plus, i didn't have any of the ingredients anymore.

so you're not alone!

nts,

you know what you need to accomplish.
it has been on your mind for a long time.
it's scary and you don't know how to
start.  but it's inevitable.  and sad.

nts,

If you don't want awkward questions, don't tell people stuff like that.

Stop snapping at your boyfriend, he's being amazing and you're being a dick.

Get over it.

NTS-
Stop it with the sugar already. You're a diabetic, you moron. Some is okay, but don't go overboard. When possible, use things that are better for your blood sugar.

Note to self...

Where do I even begin with this one? Well...for starters...stop falling in love with every pretty boy that gives you curry!
Love yourself.
Be content in your life.
Flirt shamelessly with the hot boys at WF's, but for gods sake...take a break from dating for the next 6 months!!!

*kisses* dear self! I love you (me?) very much--be good to yourself and know that the right one is searching for you so you can stop looking.

Aaaand when you use BP when the recipe calls for Baking Soda, it don't rise worth crap. Tasty, yes--heavy as hell.
