We've all had them... disasters, bloopers, mishaps, mistakes in the kitchen or while cooking. Let's share our funny stories with each other... makes me feel less like a dope to realize that others have mishaps while cooking too. This is just a light hearted group to share stories to give us all a laugh.

One day when my eight-year old grand-daughter was with me, she wanted to bake something,and I decided it would be easiest in the time we had to make a cake using a cake mix. After placing the cake pans in the oven, wouldn't you know my eyes came upon a bottle of vegetable oil still sitting on the counter with a dry measuring cup! She was giggling and we were both amazed that the cake was baked and looked and tasted like it should after all. Of course she was amused when I "fessed-up to leaving out an ingredient in the cake" when we served it to her mom and dad. Oh well, we had fun baking together in any case.

I decided homemade chicken noodle soup sounded like a good idea. After I started boiling the chicken, I decided to use the home canned vegetables my mother-in-law had given me, instead of chopping my own. The beautiful jar contained all the vegetables I needed: carrots, celery and onion.
I was so proud of the soup I had made and my little short cut.
Unfortunately when my husband came home, his first words were, "Why does it smell like pickles in here?"
I quickly realized that I had used a jar of Million Dollar Relish, which is pickled.
Now when I make soup, my husband asks "Did you chop the vegetables yourself?"

I had served everyone else pie and made a plate of pie and ice cream for myself sat down and took one bite. I was horrified to realize I forgot to put the sugar in with the blueberry's. I then had to laugh because everyone was trying not to hurt my feelings and were trying hard to eat the pie without making faces let me tell you it WAS disgustingly bad. Thankfully I had the two other apple pies to rescue the evening. Despite the mishap everyone had a wonderful time. I now taste all my deserts before I serve them to guests.
