One time I was baking and for some strange reason I figured that using a frying pan was a great idea..then the handle melted off of it.

Nothing catastrophic. I burned 2 batches of cookies, but since then they've turned out perfect. Last year, we had to bake cookies for science class. One of my group members bought liquid butterscotch instead of butterscotch chips. The cookie turned out hard and really chewy, but it was alright.

well once I cooked custard in the oven I forgot to put a pan of hot water under it, and when it came out it looked like it was a volcanic eruption. So I learn to pay more attention.

I remember this one time I decided to try my luck with making mayonnaise. My first mistake was using a whisk instead of a mixer. I mean, you can use a whisk to make it, but damn, all that whisking makes you arm hurt like hell if you're not used to it. I had it just about done, and thought it wasn't thick enough. The recipe called lemon or lime juice. I was using lime juice. Since it wasn't quite at the correct consistency, I added a little more lime juice. With that done, the recipe recommended adding a teaspoon of sugar and two teaspoons of onion powder. I though putting sugar in there sounded kinda strange but went along with it. Once I had it all mixed in, I tasted it. It was AWFUL. The sugar made it kinda sweet, and I had put too much lime juice, and the onion taste was way to strong. It tasted like freakin' key lime pie with onions! Needless to say, I threw that shit out. But, I learned from it, and now I have my own recipe for mayonnaise

wow such stories lol, nothing like my embrassing moment.

okay so my boyfriend was comming over to cook breakfest for me, because i have no idea how. he asked me if i had rice. i just said 'yes' not really knowing. my family hardly cooks. so aster he told me he was coming, i checked for rice....NO RICE. i was doooommed! i'm asian and i have no rice! i checked the cloest for rice, none there! there was only brown rice... i'm over heare staring at it because i usually mix brown rice with white rice...so i'm like 'forget it we are eating healthy' so i cook the brown rice how i usually cook the mix version....then he came over, he started to cook for me;corned beef and some thing else i forgot. so when he was done i scooped the rice...(not yet tasting it) and served it. i waited for his reaction...OMG he just looked at me like 'for real she don't know how to cook!' so i tasted it. it was solid HARD! so embrassed, i actually showed my boyfriend i can't even cook rice IN a rice cooker!!!! gezz

That's awesome! ^_^ And also his fault for not checking the rice when you told him you couldn't cook.

I've never used a rice cooker, but I imagine there's always room for error.

I remember trying to make brownies with my boyfriend once in a dorm, but the oven sucked and they wound up rock hard. They broke the knife >_<

Wow!!! Well for me was the first time I tried to make my first dinner to prove to my folks that I could cook and baby-sit.
I remember I burn the rice, the chicken was raw and the beans...well they look like pudding when I finished cooking them.
But the good news was that the kids like me, I got the job and did some hot dogs to redeem myself… so I guess it all ends well.

P.S. I still suck at cooking but...I’m learning so not all hope is lost. ^_~
