I love to cook and I love to bake. Not for my own good, no no, I do it because I want to make others go oohhh and ahhhh . It is for purely selfish reasons, please read here.
Not to brag, I have made some yummy dishes. Baked some melt in your mouth cookies, made some killer cinnamon rolls and I do make a pretty mean lasagna. Unfortunately, not all my cooking comes out, shall we say, good.
I try not take pictures of those mishaps, because, well, because I like things to be pretty, and let me tell you these mishaps are definitely not pretty.
Such as tonight, I burnt some bread. (I found this recipe from Pioneer Woman and was so excited to try it.) Yes, yes, we have all burned bread left in the oven too long. I literally burned the bread, like fire, flames and smoke. I did not realize how hot I had turned my broiler, and whadda ya'know? The bread was on FIRE. Yes, my friends, I was actually burning the bread. Le Sigh.
I have also burned bacon so much to a crisp that, if you picked up a piece it would disintegrate into dust in your fingers. I did take a picture of that. Le Sigh.
I have forgotten to put cinnamon in my cinnamon rolls. So all I had were sugar/butter rolls. (I am hanging my head in shame as I type this sentence.)
I have burned (most of my bad food stories involved burning, if you haven't noticed) the bottom of cookies so much that they were like rocks and you couldn't even bite into them. Le Sigh.
I just chalk this all up as part of the learning process, and will keep on trying new recipes and working on my skills in the kitchen. One day, I will not burn my baked goods or set bread on fire.
Have a Fun Weekend.
