A Recipe for Disaster

I often joke that I am a terrible cook and that even simple brownie making can end up a disaster in this house. As it goes that’s not too far off the mark!

But I guess cooking disasters are all relative and soggy sticky, greasy brownies are better than what happens here in this nutella brownie video.

Yikes.

Did you know that 50% of house fires start in the kitchen? In this case it was simply because the microwave wasn’t clean

How very scary is that! Gosh I cannot think how long it is since I properly cleaned my microwave!

In a moment of complete stupidity (yes, I will totally own it) I once tried to put a metal jug in the microwave to heat up water for a jelly. What on earth was I thinking? My shocked husband stopped me just in time before I pressed start. I was pregnant at the time and distracted but oh my goodness that would have been so dangerous!

On another occasion I was making soup in our kitchen and fancying myself as a bit of a Delis Smith. It was a long and complicated recipe, I had ingredients galore and was in rather a pickle. Pots were here there and everywhere and I was stressing out and not paying very close attentionĀ  to details. I suddenly saw a little flame leap out he corner of my eye. Somehow or other a tea-towel got onto the cooker and had caught fire. I managed to put it out swiftly but I was, very very shaken. Such a close call.

I learned from these near misses how very important it is to pay total attention in the kitchen, to be alert mindful and present.
