Since the one of the, oh, 3 days a year in which I bake something besides nachos is approaching, I wanted to give a shout-out to my dear friend Alex, a culinary talent who bakes much more often.

Yes, sucrose...the chemical compound we all know and love as sugar. I know, I wish I'd thought of it too.
