I'm a pretty decent improviser when cooking, so it's rare I make a mistake so grave that I can't bounce back. There were, however, a few situations when I admitted defeat.
  1. Skin
    I was grating potatoes to make a potato waffle. Using a box grater and trying to get your money's worth out of the small potatoes your CSA gave you last week means grating them to the nub - and part of my index finger along with it. For the record, it was still delicious.
  2. A knife
    After packaging up my perfect, bite sized gluten free quiches for book club, I realized to my horror that a chunk of my knife was missing. It chipped into the quiche mix. For a split second I wonder - is it worth it to play quiche roulette? I threw them away and picked up cava and orange juice instead.
  3. Too much baking powder
    Added double the baking powder accidentally and ended up weeping over an exploded birthday cake as I scraped vanilla bits from the inside of my tiny apartment stove.
