Betty Crocker? I think not.


Here is an example of my baking skills....

I can make a beautiful banana cream pie (with meringue on top!), as long as you don't mind a little fire in the kitchen!

When I was making this I was so paranoid that I would burn the meringue that I set two timers just to be sure. When I smelled smoke coming from the kitchen, I just couldn't believe it. I checked...everything looked fine. It could use a few more minutes. Oh, wait. Not everything looked fine. There was that potholder smoldering on the burner that I had left turned on. Oops!

So I couldn't use it to pull out the pie, but the pie did turn out pretty well! :)

I wish I could smell through my screen to smell the pie (not the pot holder)and to taste it :), it's looks wonderful!
