In Response To Your Google Search Query #1

Just in case you thought I was done blogging for the day:

Dear Person Who Found My Blog Via The Search Query "how to make big fluffy croissants",

Quel Damage! But mercy buckets for visiting! I presume to take the meaning of your query in a non-sexual way and hope you weren't too disappointed to find this blog has nothing to do with baked goods or pastries and everything to do with my life's boring and often disgusting minutiae. I do have some good news for you, however!

No, I didn't just save a bundle on car insurance, but I actually DO know the secrets of how to make big fluffy croissants.

Here you go:
Don't over knead the dough and make sure that both the butter AND the dough are about the same temperature before you begin rolling. 65°F (23°C) is ideal. Now, if that doesn't work for you, you can try a little trick I learned several years ago in Paris that I like to call "go to the bakery and let a professional worry about such things darling because life is short".

Bon app├ętit et Bonne Chance!

The Lady

Forget that noise, I'm just going to find a Burger King and buy a croissandwich. Good enough.

I used to work at Baker's of PAris in San Francisco. I can't tell you how wonderful their croissants were. Why would I ever try to beat that?

You're searchers are much more civilized than mine.

I usually get stuff like: "peed in pants" "Monster Killer Cock" "Gyno Visit" and that kind of junk.
