13 Ridiculous True Stories Of Cooking Mistakes And Kitchen Screw-Ups

, , , ,

Cooking isn’t for everyone.Even for those of us who claim to be great at it mess up every now and again.

If you’re not careful, the tiniest lapse in judgement can ruin an entire meal, or even worse, end up hurting you or damaging your home! Safety in the kitchen is the first thing you should look out for, always. Saving the soup on the stovetop is not as important as putting out the fire in the oven.

I’m definitely guilty of making very silly mistakes in the kitchen all the time. Right off the bat, I’ve done #1 on this list at least once before. Sometimes when you’re on autopilot early in the morning or after a long day, things happen. I can’t say that I’ve ever come close to setting my kitchen on fire like some of these stories, but I’ve definitely goofed up.

Have you ever done something as ridiculous as the folks on the list below? Hopefullyeverything worked out okay for you in the end, just as it did in all of these stories!

When I come back she’s almost crying from laughter. She went to put up the flour and seen that I hadn’t been using flour at all. I’d been dumping cup after cup of powdered sugar into a pan of sausage and milk.” Metroid_PrimeRib
