  • aww i have only cooked it once and it was fine.
    but the first year we had my dog. she was a puppy. we took herto my dad's to dinner and everyone is eating and i realize the dog is gone, i ran into the kitchen to find her with the leftover turkey - bigger than her! and had to wrestle the dog for it getting turkey and juices all over me... she hasnt been invited back since but they send home scraps/ that was the worst thing i have done. my mil alway burns bread, she hasnt cooked the meal if the bread isnt burnt, she is a wonderful cook but it is unfortunately her trademark.

  • For me it's baked goods! I can cook all day long and everything will come out good except anything like cookies or pies or anything like that. For some reason I just can't get a feel for baked goods! So I cheat....I either buy them from the store or ask someone else to bring the dessert!

  • I haven't done anything, but my once she forgot to turn on the oven and the stupid turkey was like sitting in there all cold until about 11:00! She about had a cow, my grandma and all the rest of the family were due to come over at noon... we ended up nuking the turkey and it turned out okay.

  • The first time I ever had to cook T-day meal I undercooked the turkey and we all got sick. 25 yrs ago, but still a fresh memory. BTW..if you ever burn something bad in a pan again...fill the burned part with water and add some dishwashing liquid. Put it on the stove and bring the water to a boil. Usually that will loosen anything burned.
