Sometimes, you bake something and it’s OK. Not blow-you-over-amazing, but still decent. It will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth’s craving, and you might even bake it again. But you’re not so unswervingly dedicated to it.
And then sometimes, you tweak it a bit. You read a few more recipes, you add a couple of ingredients, maybe swap one or two, and you’ve found IT. And IT is clearly superior. True story.
