Cooking Blunders

Well, I was boiling up some pasta to make tuna salad...forgot how much the damn stuff expands...as we speak, my kitchen is overrun with pasta. That's not the first time I've done that...guess I'll never learn! *lol*

I also screwed up a no-bake desert one time...then there was the time I ruined spaghetti (Mom and Dad came home and found ruined noodles all over the counter, a jar of sauce on the floor, and me sitting on the floor next to it, crying).

So.....how about your cooking blunders? Who else is clueless in the kitchen?

my baking blunder--mistaking CORN starch for flour (i was 14 at the time)

for sauces, add some flour (not spaghetti sauce!), and for the spaghetti sauce... add a big can of tomato paste, and let it simmer for several hours.

i dunno how to make custard...

I fell asleep with a pizza in the oven once. I ended up with a big, black frisbee.

age of 15. parents running late getting home from work. no money in the house. don't know why they didn't just order a pizza but they asked me to make one. so i use the dough and sauce and the cheese and whatever toppings everyone wanted.
cook it, first time cooking really. think it's gone really good.

i didn't use pasta sauce on the dough though.
i used seafood sauce. 'twas not a treat.

age of 20. put macaroni & cheese in dish and on stove. used caserole dish. that doesn't work it exploded and we had macaroni and caserole everywhere in the kitchen

My cooking blunders always seem to happen on Thanksgiving when I have my husband's family over..

2 years in a row, I cooked the turkey but forgot to take out the bags with the giblets and the neck. I pulled them out in front of everyone and they looked REALLY nasty. Everything Thanksgiving, my sister-in-law calls me and says "did you check the turkeys ass for any stray bags?"

Another time I was taking a pumpkin pie out of the oven and I forgot to put a cookie sheet under the aluminum pie pan and it bent and all the pie filling spilled out and landed on the heating element in my electric oven. The house filled up with smoke and we had a burnt pumpkin odor for days.

Other than that, no really blunders except maybe over-salting a few things.

cooking..........heres an incredible understatement.....is REALLY...REALLY not my thing.

a selection of blunders includes....

1. mistaking flour for salt in a chicken type thingy.
2. mistaking salt for flour in a cake.
3. not knowing where to turn on the oven.
4. thinking that maybe it would be a good idea to put an unopened can in the microwave....there was baked beans EVERYWHERE!

i know......hopeless.....

Whenever I make scrambled eggs, I usually tend to overcook them and they look and taste like rubber.

I don't know if anyone's heard of Easy Mac, it's macaroni and cheese you make in the microwave. One day I put in too much water, over a cup than I was supposed to. Mmm, macaroni and cheese soup.

:lemon: And in Spanish class last year, we made paella (it's got rice and shrimp and vegetables), and the person who I was making it with put way too much lemon juice in it, I think all I could taste was lemon! (lesson: measure your ingredients)

I once tried to make caramel. It was a disaster. I got burned sugar and, a, uh, rather large conflagaration occurred as a result .......I thought the neighbors were going to call the fire department. That was a *real* disaster....I haven't tried to make caramel since, heck, I buy the stuff.
