Italy has ruined my baking skills

Today I decided to bake so I could give cookies away to random people at work tomorrow.

I decided on oatmeal chocolate chip cookies but instead of chocolate chips I cut up a chocolate bar with hazelnuts in it.  Sounds delicious right???

I thought so too until I pulled this out of the oven:

Flat cookies.

Burnt cookies.


I blame Italy.

Italy has killed my baking skills and bolstered my meat making skills.

All this because of a strange curiosity about pancetta…

Overrated, I’m ready to be vegetarian again and win back my baking skills.
