The only way my wife can stomach liver is to cook it as a slab, buried in tomato sauce and cheese. Don't burn this dish. Let me tell you this again, don't burn this dish. It ruined my pan beyond repair (never could get the disgustin smell out of it), and stunk up the house for 2 days, and that's after scrubbing the kitchen walls (I really burnt it bad, all dried out and smoking!).

I was cleverly showing DH how to separate the egg white from the yolk--so clever that I slipped and dropped the egg on the counter. I watched the whole thing slip down the crack between the stove and the counter and make a huge mess down the side of the cabinet and underneath the stove. I sure showed him.

OMG, I did exactly the same thing, sattie. Except I was making a green tomatillo sauce for cheese enchiladas and the tomatillos were straight off the stove - I had quite a few splatter burns as well as a very big mess to clean up.

Same for me, I burned a pot of bean soup while talking on the phone.

I'm dying here!!!! I was making a chimichurri sauce, and I hit the button and things started flying everywhere! Then in a panic, I hit a button at even a higher speed! Needless to say, I was cleaning green junk off cabinets, floors, walls, actually I'm still finding remnants of it this day....

That's freaky amazing, sattie! I did exactly the same thing - hit the faster speed button trying to turn it off! (I didn't want to say it because I thought I'd look even more foolish but if you did it too - it's a blender design flaw!!!!) I did it just before I renovated the kitchen and even though I cleaned up all of the green gunk I could find, when I tore out the cabinets I found a lot more!!!

The time I brought a praying mantis egg case into the house and stuck in in a jar on the kitchen window sill while I tried to figure out what it was.

I had millions of teeny-tiny praying mantises everywhere. I think I still shake a little flattened one out of a cookbook once in a while.

Yea, I'm amazed where you find the stuff even months later. And I'm like, "How in the heck did it get there???"

I was baking my first cake from scratch, using a recipe from the Joy of Cooking. It was a brick when it came out of the oven. But that's not where the fun ends :-)

I said, "hey, I have 6 pounds of cake, I should still ice it". so I tried to make buttercream. Except....no one told me you have to mix it for like 15 minutes. So I get a chunky, but liquidy, sad and unfortunate butter...slime instead.

But the fun keeps going :-P

I said, "oh no! The butter must have melted". Naturally, by this time, the buttercream is on the cake anyway, so I put it in the fridge. In the fridge where we're marinating lamb. Marinating lamb in an aromatic garlic/onion/Worcestershire sauce marinade.

So we had a vanilla pound cake with butterslime icing and garlic/onion accents.

The worst thing is: my aunt and grandmother actually took it all home and ate it! :=|
