I'm Not Taking Them

I made brownies yesterday for the potluck today. However, I baked them too long. I cut them this morning in preparation for taking them to church and it was hard to get the knife through them. I'm not going to subject my friends to my bad baking experience. I'm a good cook and baker. They would never believe it if I took those brownies. So, I'll dip them in a glass of almond milk and eat them that way. I can feel those pounds adding on. Otherwise, they do taste good. Are you a good cook and baker that sometimes has a bad experience? Thanks for reading. The image belongs to me.

I have experienced it sometimes and eat it on my own too or have no choice but throw it away if it is really bad that I can`t take it too in my own taste. That`s why when I will experiment something I make sure to make little of it. Your brownies looks good even though it is hard to cut You don`t want to share it with your neighbors?

Oh darn. But yah, sometimes these things happen - even if we are good cooks and bakers. I've mismanaged the time and forgot there was something in the oven . . . that makes things extra crispy and even black sometimes .

@just4him I know I've burned brownies before, but I couldn't tell which were the black parts . I know my daughter would have brownies in any shape or form - she'd say who cares if they are burnt . I am an almond milk drinker too .

Sorry to hear these did not turn out. It happens, even when you are quite well versed in what you are doing. At least you can still eat the mistake...albeit not without SOME back end consequence...ahem... See what I did there?

You could use them to make some kind of chocolate trifle : ) I just made a mincemeat cake today, which is super quick and easy. However it uses half a jar of mincemeat and I had previously used the first half of the jar a while ago, so this half had been in the fridge for some weeks. I think it had started to ferment a little bit. The cake turned out OK, but I wasn't quite comfortable enough about it to offer it to any visitors!
@just4him That does not mean that you are a bad baker because the brownies did not turn out. I am sure many times they turned out good. Mistakes happen. I am not great at cooking for baking but have had things turn out good or have not turned out good.

You're right. I'm an excellent baker and cook. I put them in the freezer and eat one at a time. Out of sight, out of mind, they should last a long time. They're still good, even if they are a bit hard on the edges. It's good your food turns out well.
@just4him My food does not always turn out good but it is fine for me. I buy things and they do last a long time too. Now, not sure of our situation so not sure about buying things. I can buy things we can take with us but waiting a little bit to see. I am glad you are an excellent baker and cook. Things happen where something you normally make that turns out fine most of the time has that one time it does not work out. That happens.
