Around here, a lot of DIY kitchen projects start like this (read in “whiny internal monologue voice”):
Awww crap, we’re out of ______ (insert item here).
I don’t want to load the kids in the car and go to the store for just one thing.
There’s gotta be a way I can make it myself.
Tortillas and pie crusts have magically appeared in this fashion. Last weekend, a similar situation arose when I was out of brown sugar.
What the heck? I thought (read in “confident kitchen DIY voice”). Brown sugar is just white sugar with molasses added, so why not just make it myself?
