My Greatest Cooking TriumphOvercoming my fear of matches so I could light the grill on my own! I used to only use the LONG fireplace matches, and even then, I would light them while wearing oven mitts.
My Biggest Kitchen DisasterPulling chocolate chip cookies out of the oven only to have the baking sheet come out "empty" while the cookies fell down onto the oven element. Using a springform pan to bake a chocolate cake --- the batter seeped out the bottom and caused quite a mess! Ah, and the infamous anniversary cake for my parents when I was in junior high. I hate doing dishes, so to cut back I poured a two-layer cake's worth of batter into an 8-inch x 1 1/2-inch cake pan. It all fit...until the cake started to rise. *Grin*
