“Most of my worst baking disasters stem from the fact that I’m usually doing three things at once in the kitchen. Take today for example. With my mum’s sage advice playing in mind, I decided not to waste the space in the oven while the brisket was roasting. Since the cookie jar was empty, I decided a batch of Vanilla Almond Crisps was in order … but as you can see, I underestimated my oven space and ended up with cookies stuck to the bottom of the roasting pan! Ugh! Thankfully our children, who are home-schooled in the kitchen, were on hand to gobble up the ‘disaster’ thus sacrificially ridding the kitchen of ugly cookies. Once again, being a home-school mama to two imaginative children saved my sanity … or at least the cookies!”
