Everyone has burnt some or the other thing in his life while cooking. i mean while cooking if you are doing multi tasking then also it is quite possible that you burn. but while cooking if you are thinking something , then also it is very much possible. i have burnt onions while making lunch because my baby suddenly woke up, i rushed and forgot to simmer the burner and all my onions turned into ash. so, what happened with you, what is your case please share ?

Hi aweins, well it's not a usual event but recently I did burn a tray of fruit buns by leaving them in the oven for over twice as long as I should have, my own fault as I usually set the time on my mobile to alert me when the baking time is up. I was about to bin the lot when decided to ask my son if he thought they were still edible, he decided they were delicious, and asked me to do them like that again next time.

My eldest son invited his classmates to his birthday last week. We made a reservation in a restaurant. We chose the videoke room. But, 2 days before the birthday, we changed mind and decided to just hold the celebration in the house. So, I went to the grocery, bought stuffs, and did the cooking. I was multitasking, yes, cooking 3 dishes at the same time coz I was afraid I would run out of time. At the same time, I was talking to my niece. To make the story short,I burned the beef. I still served the caldereta (with the burned beef) and no one tasted it,lol...There were other dishes anyway.

Well I have burnt two things recently. First I have burnt a batch of cookies, that were supposed to be for my whole family. They weren't very happy about that, and neither was I, and secondly I burnt a batch of biscuits which were just supposed to be for my mother.
