Out of all of the Daring Bakers challenges that have been presented since I joined over a year ago, this is the one I have been most looking forward to. And I blame myself for waiting until the last minute, because circumstances prevented me from making the wonderful Eclairs that were picked. Last week, we discovered a leak in our ceiling. The leak is caused by our central air that was installed incorrectly, so we have been living with a hole in the room of our bedroom, and no central air. And cooking with no central air when the temperature has been in the 90s? Maybe if I wasn’t pregnant!!

The temperature is supposed to be down tomorrow, so I may attempt these, but do go check out all of the other creations!!

    That’s some hole in the ceiling! Don’t feel too bad about missing. I didn’t have that good of an excuse.

  2. Tiffany says:

    Oh no!!!! I sure hope you get everything fixed soon. Being hot and pregnant is no fun….(spoken by a woman who has done pregnancy in both FL and South GA…NO FUN!!!). I also procrastinated…I did my challenge today. And it didn’t turn out as planned. Ah well. On to next month.

    Bummer. I hope your air and that hole is fixed soon. You’ll love this recipe. Hope you will get a chance to make it.

  5. kat says:

    Oh yeah no baking in hot weather, its just no fun without the ac to cool you down

    That is horrible! I don’t think I’d be able to sleep. We had a hole like that in our ceiling once…but it was because my dad stepped through it! We were getting ready to sell the house…bad timing! Hope you get to do the eclairs at some point.

  7. Katerina says:

    It doesn’t get that hot here very often – but we don’t have central air either. That said I HATE turning on the oven when it is hot so I understand. Do make them though, they are good.

  8. Shannon says:

    Ughh! I’ve been there. We bought a fixer upper when I was pregnant with our second daughter and had to move in before the a/c was installed due to money issues. That was a VERY long Florida summer. Hope your a/c gets fixed soon!

    Oh geez, pregs and no air? I would have checked into a hotel.

  10. Vera says:

    Deborah, you’ve certainly got an excuse! I hope it will be fixed soon.
    And congratulations on the most wonderful event!

    BTW,hot & eclairs don't go together; great idea to wait for airconditoning!! Ciao for now!!

  12. Half Baked says:

    Oh no!! You definilty get a pass this month! Hope the hole and air conditioning are fixed soon:)

  13. Barbara Bakes says:

  14. glamah16 says:

    Eek! Hopefully everything will be okay soon.

    Don’t push yourself for this or any other post. Most important is that you are comfy and happy.

    Man that is rough! No AC, hole in the ceiling and being pregnant! I hope it gets fixed fast for your sake!! :)

  19. Elle says:

    Wow! Sorry about your troubles. Hope the air conditioning gets fixed ASAP! Pregnancy certainly doesn’t make it any easier to with stand the heat, either. Stay well. Next month you will be able to play with DBs again.

  20. Jenny says:

    Sorry to hear about this Deborah! I know it’s no fun to have no air and especially when you are pregnant! Best of luck girl!

  21. The Baker & The Curry Maker says:

    Pregnant! Yay! Congratualtions. I always felt you and I had a special bond, and now even more so, I am too! Hehe. You missed out on the eclairs though, wow, they were good. I wish I could send you one. I totally get it though, I only just managed to get into the kitchen myself.

    Sorry about your house troubles! I hope everything gets fixed soon!! And at least it is a little cooler this week!

  24. Patricia Scarpin says:

    I hope you can solve this problem soon, dear!

  25. Peabody says:

    Oh my!

  26. Antonio Tahhan says:

    oh, no! I hope everything gets fixed soon! you could always bake eclairs another time. I’ll even join you because we recently finished the batch I made and now I’m craving more :)

  27. kellypea says:

    Ugh. I was ready to deliver my second child smack in the middle of August, and the idea of having to bake in that heat with no cooling, um, no. The cupcakes are looking pretty scrumptious. I’d say that you’ll get around to the eclairs and that when you do, they’ll be great!
