I think I like baking because of the fussy precision. I also like chocolate work which is even fussier. Crisps are a perfect no-fail dessert, excellent choice and the pineapple, kumquat, ginger sounds fantastic! Here is my brownie recipe and I can’t imagine it giving you any trouble.

AHA! good idea. Though their idea of measuring: one chocolate chip for recipe, 5 for my tummy! ~jaden

I can if I really pay attention but one time when I was making heart shaped sugar cookies for Valentine’s Day – I made some pretty big mistakes like putting too much baking soda and forgetting to put sugar. :p What kind of a sugar cookie has no sugar in it?

Anyway I managed to save the day by painting one side with red frosting and painting the other side with melted sweet chocolate. Some American kids at school (in the Philippines) who loved Pop Tarts loved my cookies and kept coming back for more because they said they tasted like…Pop tarts!

This is why I call myself a baking noob…

EXACTLY! that sounds just like me ~jaden

LOL…. it seems cooking gives us more freedom, to add & to substract, without making the end result falls flat :)

I made it a New Years resolution (which sounds like it doesn’t carry a lot of weight, but for cooking, I think it does) to learn to bake a few things. It’s just hard…you spend all day working on something like…bread…only to have it turn out wrong? I’m a bit more “taste-as-you-go” and want immediate feedback on how I’m doing! Baking requires more waiting and patience. Good for you, and this crisp sounds absolutely delicious! I’ll have to locate some kumquats and get this baby rolling!

I joined The Daring Bakers to help get over my fear and it’s made a difference. Here’s a pie recipe and a bar recipe that I’ve created that use the same crust. I just make a double recipe of the crust dough and refrigerate half until I’m ready to make the other one. You HAVE to try the Dark Chocolate Haupia Pie, coconut, chocolate, macadamia nuts, can’t go wrong!

I’m definitely making the pineapple kumquat, ginger dessert – sounds fab! I love to bake! My recent passion is cold desserts – frozen or chilled – does that count? This one I’ve made several times and it’s always a winner! Super easy and gorgeous – Frozen Mango Raspberry Terrine. Enjoy! http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/108190

When we moved to our new house, I quickly found out that the oven burned every cookie and muffin I ever tried to make. When I tried banana bread, the bottom burned even while the middle of it was still a liquid. Gross! Something is not quite right. I ended up having to order a new oven–can’t wait until it arrives!

Like another commenter, I never sift my flour, I never level off the tops of the measuring cups, I guess at what pan to use if I don’t have the right size. It all works out well!

I’ve even forgotten the baking soda until the pan went into the oven! I just pulled it out, mixed in the baking soda, and it was fine!

I love this cake:

It used up so many apples (a plus!) and was lovely and moist.
