"" The Exhausted Mom: Cooking FAIL!

March 26, 2012

Cooking FAIL!

So I've been trying to be more adventurous with my cooking lately.  Checking out recipes online and working to introduce new foods into our meals.  

I LOVE Skinny Taste and through the "almighty" Pinterest, I've found The Naked Kitchen.  Both sites offering delicious looking meals that are good for you.  Right up my alley!

So tonight I decided to try Skinny Taste's Baked Garlic Lemon Tilapia paired with The Naked Kitchen's Zucchini Chips.  Got your mouth watering?  Mine too!

Everything was going well in the kitchen until I had to turn the zucchini chips.  The breading began falling off.  Oops, I should have sprayed non-stick cooking spray.  Now they are naked zucchini chips.  

Then I was following
all of the directions for the Tilapia, but made one fatal mistake.  I put the garlic in with the butter like I was supposed to, but then immediately added the lemon juice.  Did you know that garlic turns blue when you add lemon to it?  I DIDN'T!  


So now I have a meal of blue speckled tilapia and naked flimsy zucchini chips.  Oh well....it still tasted good.

So sorry, Sarah, Kristy, and Gina....I guess I won't be making meals for recipe books any time soon!

What is your biggest cooking FAIL?



  1. Hey at least you cooked! One time I cooked chicken with red wine. It turned my chicken purple!

  2. I agree, all cooking efforts are valiant. One time, in college, I tried to defrost frozen ground turkey in cold water, pursuant to my mother's instructions. Unfortunately, I didn't realize you were supposed to LEAVE the turkey IN the package, and came home from class to cold raw turkey soup. Ew. Ordered pizza.

  3. its cool...everyone has a cooking fail once and a while...had my cooking fail of the month the other day! threw it all away bc it tasted like crap! word to the wise...do not ever make peanut crusted chicken. ever.
