Today was a quiet day, and Im not overly impressed with this recipe, but it is all right and I know what I will be doing differently next time, which is when I will post the recipe (providing I am right).

Today I made a Pear, Pecan and Cheese slice from the same book as last week.

As you can tell the texture came out fine, but there is not nearly enough flavour involved. I will have to use either canned pears or add extra extra flavour to the water when poaching my pears next time, and the cottage cheese filling could do with a bit of brandy, honey and spices to liven it up a little. I am quite happy to have a baking project to work on but Matthew is going to have to deal with a so-so lunch this week.

As with everything you take the good and the bad with baking and this is actually one of the first slices I have made. I did enjoy it but I find I prefer to add fruit to any of my projects just to make sure we are keeping that little bit of health in there. I did not alter this recipe this time but I will be next time and we will have to see how it turns out.

Have you had any bad baking experiences? Or learned anything from one of your projects?
