Kitchen Fail 6/13

I was baking chocolate chip cookies this morning.  Instead of putting in vanilla, I put in liquid smoke.

There was absolutely no rescuing those :(


You would think I would have smelled  the liquid smoke when I opened the bottle, it's pretty pungent, but nope, I did not.

Gag. But, I've done apple juice instead of chicken broth in a Mexican rice dish. Gag.

I feel your pain.  I made a pumpkin pie one Thanksgiving and forgot the sugar.  Really?

I've done some fails plenty of times can't remember a specific, I guess there is too many to recall just one

Yikes! I once used salt instead of sugar in these meringue cookies I make! Wow talk about horrible, thank goodness I tasted them before anyone else was around and got a big mouthful of salt!!

I mixed a packet of taco seasoning into a pan of gravy once. DH said I should have kept it but I tossed it out.

Oh man, yuck!  That reminds me of the time that my ex was working in an assisted living home as a cook and he made peach cobbler for dessert, but instead of sugar he accidentally added salt.  I think he served it too, but I can't remember.

I dunno, that might have been ok :)  I would have been willing to try that.

That had to have been the worst to clean up.
