Tell Us Your Funny Cooking Mistakes...

February 28, 2011

"This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook- try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun!"
— Julia Child (My Life in France)

A harmless cooking error can easily lead to, well let’s just say, an unsatisfactory dish! If you, too, have used salt instead of sugar in your chocolate chip cookies (for a bake sale no less!) or made carrot cake without the carrots (we've done that, too), you also know that an embarrassing mistake can result in a great laugh! Do you have a funny cooking blunder to share? We’d love to hear about it...

Email Tell us your name, where you're from, your "culinary uh-oh" in 50 words or less, and send us your photo (optional!)...Then, we'll feature five of the best on Foodista! Or, if you just want to share your story, feel free to simply post it in the comment field below...Promise, we won’t laugh!

Simply put, Kosher Salt and Sanding Sugar may LOOK the same, but they make blueberry muffins taste VERY different!

Made meatballs that I couldn't even get our dogs to eat.

I cut out little heart cookies for my daughters preschool class, forgetting that the recipe spreads as it bakes. They came out of the oven rounded into little butt shapes. She ended up with store bought cookies!
