And it does - yes?
Even to the best cooks. To the most organised, well prepared, methodical - the time managers, the learned, and the amateur.
There it is - hours spent, ingredients wasted, a MESS!

What do you do?

Joking aside, what do you do?
I belong to the 'salvage-everything-you can' school. I have a lovely friend who is in the 'bin-it-before- anyone-sees-it' school. How about you?



My son's eighteenth birthday cake. In my defense, we had all been celebrating for a few hours and the cake was an 11pm request.....

Well...isn't the final determination what it tastes like rather than what it looks like?
I'm sure your son was happy with it...and it really doesn't look all that bad Anne.
Go ahead...play with your food!

To quote the Sainted Julia, "Don't be afraid. You can always eat your mistakes."

I have no hard and fast rules about this. But I tend to side with her.

A co-worker, who doesn't really cook, was telling me about the time he burned smoked sausages. "Not to worry," he said, "I told everybody it was Cajun style blackened sausage."

Seems to me he's got the makings of a great cook.

   I wonder if everyone read Brooks Julia post in her voice, I know I did LOL


  I normally eat my mistakes unless it's something that would greatly effect the outcome of the dish, like a broken sauce.  But normally, at the fire station...there isn't no second chances...you serve what you made.
Enjoy The Food!

I even wrote it in her voice, Dan. Is it possible to not hear that distinctive voice when you read or quote her?

Ann, we're talking about my post above, where I quote Julia Child.

What Dan was wondering was whether, when folks here read it, they did so with Julia's distinctive sounding voice. Once you've heard it you can't mistake it for anything else.

Is there another voice? Geek
I thought there was a post Brook had written - that would be a fun read. Brook writes so well.
