Definitely a baker

Definitely not a cook.

I'm still trying new things and today my new thing was a recipe called chicken tetrazini. I thought I was all prepared and had all the ingredients and cutlery ready and everything. Turns out I really didn't.

It tasted alright, but I knew that it had beef stock instead of chicken because I picked up the wrong packet at the shop, that the sauce was twice as watery as it should be because I remembered to half every ingredient except the water, that it had greek yoghurt and cottage cheese in place of cream to thicken it (that one's probably for the best) and that it had skinny spaghetti when it should have been ribbon pasta.

It's SO strange to me that I can try any baking recipe and it'll turn out pretty much perfect first time. But when it comes to cooking somehow I just can't get it right.

Maybe I'll stick to cakes and biscuits from now on : p

    I have always been a great baker. Ok cook. Probably would have been a lot smaller if it was reversed. emoticon

    I am proud of you for trying. I'm lucky to have a great cook for a partner.

    I find baking more difficult than cooking... I'm sure next time it will be great! The important thing is to understand what went wrong and correct it the next time.

    Way to go experimenting! I am right there with you though - I love to bake and get great results, but not such a big fan of cooking. Fortunately my husband loves to cook, so perfect for me emoticon

    Ha! I'm the opposite! I can't bake very well at all. I'm more of a cook. But, everyone is prone to those little things every once in a while. I live in a different community now that doesn't have all the great grocery items I'm used to... so, I have to substitute and make do with what I have. A lot. And I've certainly forgotten to half or double an ingredient before!!! Don't beat yourself up too much!

    You tried and thats all that matters! I hate cooking, but am the house chef, which is sad!
