I make better _____ than _____.
Today I got annoyed because the guacamole on my lunch from Chipotle was too salty and not limey enough... so I decided to make my own to go with dinner - it was way better.
So it got me thinking - what do you make better than someone who is known for making that thing? What do you do to make it better?
For me, it's my chocolate chip cookies. My grandmother is known for her baking, but my chocolate chip cookies are hands-down better than hers. We use the same recipe (tollhouse), but mine are just better. I think it's because I mix it by hand and use more brown sugar and less white sugar, and better quality chocolate, while she uses the stand mixer, uses the measurements of sugar that the recipe calls for, and omits the salt.
What about you?
