Selective Memory

How come I remembered that I was out of brown sugar twice in a row (meaning I have one more bag of brown sugar than I need), but I keep forgetting that I have no baking powder?

And why didn't I check that I had all the ingredients before I started making muffins?

Fortunately, I found this substitution. I hope it actually works okay. Though, again, I wonder why I happen to have Cream of Tartar -- something I don't think I've ever used.

Update: The substitution worked just fine. The muffins were properly puffy and edible.


At least you only remembered twice. For a while there, I had three back-up bottles of soy sauce. It's nice to know the substitution worked.

My guess is the cream of tarter is left over from making playdough at home. If that wasn't it, at least you have an idea on what to use it for.
