A Word of Advice
Let's say that you're the type of person who offers to make not one but two pies for Thanksgiving, despite the fact that you have never made a pie in your whole entire life. Ever. You might think it's a good idea to perform a "test run" of the pie crust, maybe on a Friday night when you've had a really long week and are almost deliriously tired. You might be all hopped up on confidence from having recently made a successful batch of cupcakes (you know, the Everest of the baking world) and you might be thinking you are now the invincible master of the kitchen. What, with your shiny new appliances and all, how could there be room for doubt? Well, totally hypothetical person, despite having every confidence in your baking prowess do not EVER stick ANY of your appendages into one of those handheld devil blenders. No matter how much butter is jammed up into that thing, you should never go fishing it out with your left index finger.
