We started off so well, and now... this.
Your recipe is so simple. It seems so wonderful, so comforting: a quick bread featuring peanut butter, a childhood favorite.
But this; this is "eh." Ok, warm out of the oven, smeared with jam or a bit of honey butter, yes, I had two pieces. But the next morning? Boring. Dull. Uninspiring.
Paula, honey – I threw the rest of the loaf out. (It landed with a heavy thud in the trash bin.)
I don’t want to fight again, Paula. I’ve been thinking about those gooey butter cakes you make – and you raaaaaaave about them – and I hope they really are good.
Because this isn’t. And I know you – no, we -- can do better.
