Re: cooking faux pas

I may need to stay out of the kitchen, I've had two faux pass in two days




I made a cake from scratch and the batter was yummy, but I over cooked it so it was dry (but not burned).

I made savory scones and um.... lets just say I ended up with batter everywhere ( naw ... I wasn't the one who overturned the pan, it was the cat, I swear .... don't you believe me)

Re: cooking faux pas

Me too. I used to zap it for a few more seconds when there was an unmelted blob in the middle. Now I have learned to just let it sit for a while and then stir it with a spoon to melt the blob.

Really? Messy?

I remember my DD thought she could hard boil and egg in the microwave once. It didn't work.

My mother, when she was living with us, was microwaving a TV dinner and messed up the time. She sat down in the living room waiting for the dinner to cook. Well, she fell asleep. I came in from outside and saw that the inside of the microwave was on fire.

My other DD used to use it as a timer. She also learned you have to take the aluminum foil off the bowl when you reheat leftovers.
