XD Everyone tell about your first or worst mistake in the kitchen.

My first mistake, I was about 9 years old. I tried to make muffins on my own, from scratch. I ended up making vanilla flavored rocks! I forgot to add the baking powder.....o.o;; and then I proceeded to burn some of them.

Hm, when I was about 9 or 10 I tried making brownies by myself. Well, I misread one of the ingredients which called for like 1/4 cup of water or something like that and instead put in 1 1/4 cup. Lol Let's just say that the batter was pretty watery. I ended up not baking the brownies, but my dad ate some of the batter just to make me feel better. ^^ But nowadays, I'm very happy to say that I am a master at brownie making! Seriously. I am. Lol

Awwww nice daddy xDD

Hmmm I remember my first mistake when I made a cake for the sale around 10...added too much raising flour but added the other ingredients right so the cake tasted ...um...bitter?

Then I made another cake again with less raising flour and it went right that time!!

My mom did something funny with the grease when trying to cook shrimp tempura, and we ended up having to call the fire department. :< And there was no tempura for us either! Haha.

One time, when I was much younger, a friend and I decided to make chocolate chip cookies. And like you have to do, we started eating the dough before they went in the oven. But it just didn't taste right and we couldn't figure out what had gone wrong. We baked the cookies anyway, but it was a disaster. They were so horrible tasting and just didn't look right at all.

Then her Dad came home and he wasn't sure whether to laugh at us or yell at us. Apparently what we thought was flour was actually a mixture he used to fry fish in. Oops! :)

I tried to cook once and it was a rather embarrassing mistake... <.<


But really, worst I remember is in one house I lived in that had an electric kitchen, I had this situation of mixing up where I had to put a pan/pot/whatever so it'd heat up and where I rested my hand... It was a painful experience.. which sadly also happened several times when the things had been recently turned off too.

Thank god we now have a gas powered kitchen.

Haha I remember a few years ago my friend and I were making some kind of cinnamon sugar cookies and we didn't have enought eggs (because I somehow managed to accidently crack one as I took it out of the container). We added a little extra oil in to make up for the eggs. I think we also mixed up when to use baking powder and baking soda.

But when they were done, the cookies were so amazing even though we made so many mistakes~
