Failed baker, saying hello and eager for advice. \n\nPoint me to a stocked kitchen and I can cook near anything. I'm a wiz on the stove top (gas; keep that electric stuff away from me). But in all my years - all Life, the Universe, and Everything of them - I've never once successfully baked a single thing, even with help.\n\nMy latest failure was banana bread, yesterday. What a disaster. I decided that with the internet, there has to be help for me out here now.
