My cooking tragedies
About 8 or 9 years ago i began cooking. i also was new to the internet. i came across THIS website and thought i would take a try at a receipe. i figured how hard can this be. i CAN read and FOLLOW directions...so easy peasy. i found a receipe for "pound cake"....LITERALLY....12 eggs, 5 to 6 cups of flour, 2 to 3 cups of sugar.....you can see where this is going. like a lamb to slaughter i diligently put it all together and stuck it in the oven. i said to myself it doesn't look like moms but then again i never really paid attn either. 90 minutes later i had the WORST mess on my hands!! i called my mom and that is when she informed me that i had been HAD. like i said i was a beginner cook and learned the hard way.
