There have been a few times where the smell of something overcooking or starting to burn has sent me running to the kitchen. Once, I burned the chicken stock. I was reducing it so it wouldn't take as much space in the freezer and my mind must have wandered. It was not salvageable, even though I tried.

I decided that I’d make a small Apple Crostata (Pie) with some small, tart apples that I had in the fruit ball that no one was eating. What better way to NOT waste food, but to transform it in to something that’s edible. Heh, and don’t I have a recipe of Pâte Brisée in the freezer?

OOPS!

Somehow, one of the “folds” of the crust fell over while baking. A flood of ooey gooey goodness, ya'know that wonderful brown sugar and cinnamon mixture that fill Apple Pies, came bubbling out on to the pan, which of course lead to burnt sugar; not appealing. Not to mention, that is one funny lookin’ pie!

Mayhaps I will remember to take pictures inside of Lucille when I open her up. I broke her.

I was making bagels and she bound up and made an awful sound. She won't mix things now, though she does move when you hit the switch.

Absolute disaster....

I have a new mixer, we are calling it Lucille as well. I need to call KA and get the old one fixed I suppose.
