So we're at that point in the pandemic when our teenager has mastered her baking skills and her parents' willpower has short circuited.
A year into lockdown and Maureen is a baking legend!
Her latest masterpiece is the Cream Puff:
|Bake it until you make it.|
|She's a real whisk-taker!|
|She made her ordinary puffs...|
|... Dream Puffs!|
To honor both her mathematical (she's also diligently studying for the AP Calculus exam) and baking prowess, I wrote a Cream Puff Fibonacci poem* in her honor.
