Im sitting bored on tumbler looking at 'expectations/reality' in cooking. 

and all i keep thinking is 'it doesnt need to be on BROIL everytime you cook!!!!!

SERIOUSLY. cookies, cake, brownies, all come out looking like trash, because people think it needs to be on 450 or 500 for 20 minutes, instead of 300 for 40.

I had that problem for a loooooong time.  I had no patience, and why wouldn't it be done twice as fast if the temp was twice as high? 

I actually made brownies once that were not only inedible, but stuck to the pan to the point where I couldn't get them out and just threw the pan away instead.  grilled cheese and pancakes were beyond me because they both require low and slow, and paying attention to what's going on.  I was well into my adulthood before it clicked.

Some people have no patience for cooking.  I'd rather cook for longer at a lower temp to get better results.

I think people have gotten spoiled with microwave ovens.  They think that everything should cook in a few minutes, not understanding that good cooking takes TIME.

Here is one. 

If the person had let the cake cool first. made the frosting thicker, and took their time with it, it would have been MUCH better.

Agreed. Some things take finesse, like making crisp caramel corn or perfect pulled pork. Baking cookies from a mix is mindless and my nine-year-old can do it.

I'm alsp suspecting that some people maybe messed these things up on purpose so that they could use their pictures online for that threat/meme (expectations vs reality business) - I wouldn't put it past people.
