If you’re like us, you’ve also been baking a ton. Why? Because, thanks to the pandemic, almost everyone is stuck inside. And what are we doing while we’re stuck inside? Stress baking of course and writing some funny quarantine-inspire baking tweets.
Need a bread recipe? Our two favorites are this banana bread recipe and this apple bread recipe that basically shoves an entire apple pie into a loaf of bread. What are you baking? Also, anyone got some yeast?
