    I can't seem to get my act together today. I have tried to bake some sugar cookies and Gingerbread cookies. Half of each batch has scorched on the bottoms [​IMG] I get so frustrated when this stuff happens. Think I'm gonna throw my hands up in the air and say forget it! [​IMG] Maybe tomorrow? I hope....

    Burnt Christmas cookies are a time-held tradition in my family, it's even trickled down to my dd's family. [​IMG] Wouldn't be Christmas without the smell of burnt cookies wafting through my house... [​IMG]

    Don't worry. I tried to make brownies. They turned out more bricks first, so I put on some frosting... and in the morning, they were falling apart like a bad fudge like they "uncooked" themselves.

    Just remember that even after you take cookies out of the oven they will continue to cook for a bit.
    Growing up my mom was famous for burned cookies.

    [​IMG] Burnt?!!! WELLLLLL.....get in the boat...it's a big one!
    I think I was here first....but don't worry, plenty of room.

    When I was first married, had my in-laws for supper...served 'runny casserole', then slipped on water my MIL had left in the floor (she was softening sheetrock mud..we were remodeling)
    tossed the mac and cheese and salad straight up in the air, landed flat on my face...and the Rev. calmly looked around and said...this is a quote "oh, don't worry about her, she does that all the time!"

    I love to cook. Baking, however, is a task I just don't have any passion towards.

    I was taught to cook "by sight" by an Italian mom. You know, a pinch of this, and a pinch of that. Turns out that doesn't work so well when one is baking. My last straw was when I jazzed up Rice Krispy Treats...I threw in a pinch too many of the Krispy's and had a pan of bricks.

    I figure that everyone has a purpose in life. One of mine is to support the families of those that DO bake. I have helped to pay for the braces, clothing, and the education of many bakers families throughout my adult life time. I have embraced it.

    Thankfully, my teen daughter has a knack for baking. The deal currently is that I cook, she bakes, and the boys do the clean up. Not a bad deal if you ask me.

    Enjoy the holidays.[​IMG]
