Lefselover, you have only dropped 2 eggs in your lifetime? Your poor dogs. Mine get an egg or two a week, I think.
Back to the tips.
Remember, baking is science, and baking recipes are formulas. Don't mess with them too much, or you will have a disaster.
(I have a friend who is always trying to "healthy up" muffins and cakes. Subbing in ww flour for white, honey for sugar and adding a cup of flax meal is pretty much a recipe for building materials--bricks.)
Other recipes, for main dishes etc are free game--I always look at them as suggestions, not written in stone. Relax, have fun, make it the way you like it.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
