I'm hard pressed to even pick out just a few - so many to choose from! But I have discovered that pasta will turn into a starch disc in the bottom of the pan if cooked too long, chicken pot pies are flammable, and missed bacon grease that leaked under the broiler pan can re-ignite the next time you use the broiler.

What an image that conjures up in my mind! And to think of all that money I've wasted on tikki torches!

You're making me feel SO much better! By the way, the rice-a-roni I got on sale (10 for $10) -- well, the rest of them are going to the food bank!

The story about corn starch cracked me up because I once grabbed the cannister of powdered sugar when I meant to make a slurry of cornstarch to thicken a stir fry. Everyone loved it! Neither husband nor I have a sweet tooth, but this was for my sisters, their kids and husbands.

Oh, well. Julia used to say, more or less, that what goes on in the kitchen, stays in the kitchen. Everyone thought my sweet stir fry was supposed to taste like that and loved it, so it doesn't count as a disaster!

A long time ago, a chicken dish called for a whole lemon.
I only had lemon juice in the house, housed in a lemon shaped containor. It looked like a whole lemon to me, so I put the whole thing in. WOOPS.
I LOVE lemony dishes, so I didn't think it was that bad. My ex boyfriend whom I was living with at the time couldn't eat it and was making some pretty weird faces "lol".
