A few weeks ago, I had this craving for cheesecake. I’ve made a few cheesecake recipes in the past, but I wanted to Pinter-Test a new recipe so I could post about it on this blog.
The result was such a disaster that it’s not even worth a PinterMESS post. I wouldn’t share this recipe with my worst enemy. The crust was way too crumbly. Then it started to burn. Then the edges of the cake itself started to burn. The middle was still goopy, and began to crack like crazy. It was downright disgusting.
I spend a lot of time cooking and baking, and sometimes, I completely fail.
When this happens, you have two choices: get upset or laugh.
I choose the “laugh” option. At the end of the day, it was just a cheesecake. I know a lot of people who get upset about spilled milk or who cry over a fallen souffle, but it doesn’t have to be a big deal unless you make it a big deal. Even professional chefs set the kitchen on fire occasionally.
And a disaster recipe isn’t always a disaster!
You usually don’t have to waste food. Instead of getting upset, use this as a chance to get creative!
And in those moment when you do have a completely disgusting cheesecake on your hands? Toss it out while you’re laughing, not crying. Some recipes are just really, really bad. Don’t blame yourself or overreact. If your kitchen is on fire, put it out and move on to the next awesome recipe!
