    Or with quick breads like that if the baking soda is old it can kill their rising power I did that with banana bread a few weeks ago

    The baking soda's fresh. But that's good to know.

    I think it was too much liquid.

    I'd mentioned mine, but apparently it's been done already *pouts*

    I made spaghetti sauce once for my Mum. While chatting with my friend as I chopped some carrots, she came in a screamed at me for being so lazy as to add only 2 types of vegetable. That sucked.

    I have two disasters. Selected from many,alas.:
    One-as a 10 year old, my Cousin and I were going to allowed to have a taffey pull with all the little Cousins. We had moved the taffey to a well buttered bowl & were getting ready to pull it. All the tiny Cousins (I recall at least 4) had had their little hands just slathered in butter. Then a little mouse ran in my Grandmothers big kitchen. I screamed and dropped the bowl and everyone was screaming in holy terror-little buttered hands everywhere! Huge mess! My Grandmother and Aunts came running to see & they when they viewed the mess THEY started screaming too! My Grandmother always reminded us, when we got big she was coming to our houses & make taffey!

    Two-and most everyone that has been on here a while recalls this-Pinklilycat (who I adored & where is she!) gave me a recipe for Yorkshire Pudding. I was thrilled & feeling quite British. It came out Yorkshire Pudding Flambe-off went the fire detectors & dogs barking running in every direction. I had just tweaked the recipe just a tad & set the oven too high. The smell! OMG! I accused her of being a Double O agent & making a terrorist attack in Texas, Novice was kind enough to add some pointers that I THINK might help, should I ever get my nerve up!

    in my world they know me here


    these are great.

    i have two to share.

    the first is when i was pregnant i was making au gratin potatoes (boxed kind) and it called for boiling water. so i boiled the water and as i was pouring it in the measuring cup it started going down the side of the pot and so i tipped it over a little more and poured it right on my hand. the top of my hand and finger blistered. my husband was not home so i went over to the neighbors house and asked them if they knew what to do. i was scared because i got so nervous and shock kinda from it hurting that i was just scatter brained. i think being pregnant makes you a little scatter brained because normally i would not do that.

    and the second was one night my husband was running late and we had planned to have bbq ribs on the grill. well i started the ribs and then started the other stuff inside and while i was tending to the stuff inside and an infant the ribs on the grill were getting a char. lol. well i got the extinguisher and put our the flaming grill on a wooden deck. pizza night it was.
