As I was watching some of our staff walk around in these weird t-shirts, I didn’t want to admit that I had no clue as to the meaning of their shirts! But anytime you see a hashtag or # (I call it a hash brown!) you have to act like you know what it means or act like you have already figured it out. Such is the case here. After inquiring of my son Brian, who is the editor of Bake from Scratch, he informed me that you have to choose: are you on Team Dough, meaning you eat raw dough, or Team No Dough!
In defining dough, I mean cake batter, raw rolls and biscuits, brownie batter, cookie dough, cornbread batter…you get the point. I had to think about this. I am in the middle on this. When I was expecting Eric and Brian, I craved cake batter! So I would go to the store buy the small Jiffy brand cake mixes and make it up without the eggs, and eat until my heart was content. Maybe that’s why Brian is the editor of Bake from Scratch!
Prior to the national hysteria of raw eggs poisoning us, we ate cake and brownie batter as children. But the real treat of all was the slice and bake cookies from the store. After we got our hands on it we hardly had enough dough to bake into cookies. Once that little plastic sleeve was open it was a feeding frenzy! Now with my grandchildren, it is the exact same. I give them a taste, but still the threat of eggs reigns supreme!
My grandmother loved raw biscuit dough. That is where I draw the line. I am not a fan of that one, but when those jewels come out of the oven, I love a good biscuit! With butter!
So which are you? #Team Dough or #TeamNoDough?
