Feminist Kitchen: Inept Baking Attempts for Paula Deen Dish

The lesson of this overly-long video I made for a fellow pumpkin aficionado is that presentation doesn't matter. Presentation is great, and for those of you who make magazine-worthy looking goods, that's beautiful. I am jealous. But when I make food, I make it to eat, so if it looks bad, then whatever... it's going to be gone soon anyway.

Other lesson with baking: following the recipe is kind of crucial. I will continue to treat baking like cooking though and improvise freely because I like to subvert the patriarchy (which I am projecting onto "recipes").
