I wasn't kidding when I wrote in one of my earliest posts that "my mother’s oven bakes faster than the speed of sound."
Be careful...ovens, and the things that come out of them, are hot! I made my Lime in the Coconut cookies for Mumma when Jon and I visited her last week, and I accidentally tapped my arm with the piping-hot edge of a cookie sheet and gave myself a nasty burn. Needless to say, I look like I've been branded by the Half-Sheet Pan Ranch.
So what's the take-away here?
- Handle one cookie sheet at a time. Don't try to take one out and put one in at the same time.
- If you can, wear long sleeves when you're cooking or baking.
- Have lots of Neosporin in your medicine cabinet.
- Don't use butter to treat a burn. (This is actual advice I got in my junior high school health class. But doesn't this advice beg the question: Why would anyone even think of using butter to treat a burn? Corn yes. Flesh wounds no.)
