Kitchen Fail ~ Part 6

I should probably start out by saying that maybe this wasn’t exactly a fail, but more so a “we’ll never bother to make that again”. 

I had been seeing oodles of “pins” for Air Fryer Chickpeas, and I had been seeing them sold in the Mega-Markets, did you see what they wanted for a small bag of these snacks? 

So I chose a fairly easy, straight forward recipe to try out at one of our Neighborhood Gal Pal Cards Game.

Ranch flavored Air Fryer Chickpeas, meh, not so much really. In fact everyone agreed, toss those out! 

I’m not going to bore you with the details of the recipe, mostly because like I said, I’m never making that again!

Remember, a recipe is simply someone else’s idea, take it and make it your own.

Another Kitchen Fail, S#|! Happens Sometimes

No really, stuff happens in the kitchen sometimes, you just can’t help it!  Ya gotta just roll with it and go with Plan B, always have a back plan.

The other morning I needed to get myself out the door to meet some gal-pals and wanted to put together an easy Brunch for DH.  I went with Costco Croissant Breakfast Sandwiches, simple enough.  I asked DH if he would like to have the Croissants toasted, “Sure”.

 

 

DANG IT!

I set them ON FIRE!

 

 

I’m still not use to this Gas Range and the Broiler, OH WELL.  DH did finally get something to eat.

The Best Coconut Pound Cake, NOT!

I love anything Coconut, so I ordered a small bottle of Coconut Flavoring from King Arthur Flour, along with a new Bundt® Pan.

I found this recipe, “The Best Coconut Pound Cake”, on a social media site and figured I’d give it a go.

It sure smelled good and looked okay I guess.

I made the icing and toasted some Shredded Coconut to go on top.

I can’t say exactly why we didn’t care for this cake, we just didn’t.  One bite and unfortunately, it got chucked into the garbage can… it wasn’t even good enough to share with the next door neighbors, I didn’t want to subject them to this cake.

I’m not going to post the recipe nor the author of it, but I will say that this is the second recipe that I’ve tried of hers and both were FAILS!

Disappointing

Pot Pie Fail

You remember my post a while back about Pot Pie For My Husband, right?

Well, it’s been quite some time since I last made this uber yummy dish, so here we go…

Looks good Chicken Pot Pie

It looks good, but, hmmm.  I didn’t have any butter, so I used Vegetable Shortening instead.  As I was making the dough for the crust, it just didn’t feel right, y’know?

Chicken Pot Pie made with Crisco

It smelled heavenly!  I let is cool for a bit before we dove in …

Chicken Pot Pie

NOPE!  That’s a fail alright.  WAY  too crumble-y, not enough gravy and kinda dry inside.

SO!  Lesson learned.  Stick with what is already tried-and-true. But that’s okay, we all have an oops now and again.
