I love being in the kitchen, over the years I have become quite good as rustling something out of nothing (handy when you are a poor student).
When my daughter was born a really got into baking and I have a soft spot for Cupcakes which is one of my 3 C’s (Chocolate, Coffee and Cupcakes).
I also have cupboards full of gadgets from electric knifes (a Christmas present!) to cupcake makers, bread makers and my new food mixers.
I may be a domestic goddess now *cough* but I haven’t always been successful in the kitchen:
There was the time when I put orange juice in the mash potatoes instead of milk. In my defence they were in the same coloured carton!
My first attempt at Christmas was a slight disaster. I took the turkey out of the freezer the day before but in my wisdom but it in the microwave and it didn’t defrost in time for Christmas lunch. This is why we now have our Christmas dinner at 4 in the afternoon I started a new tradition that day.
When I made my first ever cake I filled in with too much jam and cream and it oozed everywhere. Though it was rather nice.
More recently after making some homemade meatballs I discovered I do not like cumin. Thankfully OH does and they have been frozen for him to take to work for lunch.
It’s not always my fault when it goes wrong like when my microwave exploded or my cooker decided to die on me on Christmas eve! I managed nearly a whole just using the tiny top oven, that was fun.
My domestic disasters have made me a better cook and baker as I’ve learnt from my mistakes and it’s fun to experiment, though I don’t recommend you putting orange juice in your potatoes!
