Now … I know, normally the start of the week … aka Monday might not always be the most exciting and invigorating day. After all, the relaxation and joy of the weekend is over and Monday means “back to life, back to reality.” Morning traffic, stressful work deadlines, evening traffic, go to bed and then do it all over again… for four more days! Bahumbug!

  1. Krista,

    I prepared this recipe using a shallow jelly roll pan.
    Left them baking overtime, and they are still mush. UGH

    What did I do wrong?

    1. Baking them over time is probably where you went wrong, it probably turned the flesh insides to mush when you overcooked them. I almost undercook them to keep that crunchy texture. 🙂 Hope that helps MaryJane!
