Don't think so. Made excellent Fillet Mignon (and more) today and usually don't get complaints from the family.
But I was a disaster in the school cooking class, I think I managed to sear a nun's clothing once. Of course, that has been a little while ago..
Isn't that what restaurants are for? But after a quick look around my place, I think you are referring to the place in my house that we always referred to as beer storage. Its got a big chilling device that keeps my beer cold and a few drawers that hold church keys and corkscrews.
If this is the place that you so speak of...I guess I make a pretty mean Gato Taco and Tamales.

Well a few years ago i was warming up a baked potato in the microwave, i heard a sound coming from the microwave and didn't think anything of it.
So the microwave goes off and i go to get my baked potato. Well apparently the dish had cracked just like yours Lee. I didn't know this, so i grabbed each broken half without knowing. It was extremely hot and i was getting ready to put it down when the potato had fallen through because each half of the dish separated and fell right onto my wrist. It was extremely painful and it gave me a second degree burn. The burn blistered up a day later. It was blistered and red for about 3 weeks. It was a bad experience.

Not usually, except for the time I forgot to put the carafe into the coffee drip-maker when I started it,
or the time I put too much cognac into the fryingpan when I was going to flambe some veggies under a greasy kitchen-ventilator

I do all the cooking in the "relationship." Things get broken every once in a while (one glass and one glass ramekin), but that's the way things go. I think I'll head back home and have some more of the tiramisu I made

This happened a few years ago when I used to be a drunk. I was shitfaced one fine July day and thawed some steaks in the microwave. I found them three days later. They were brown, black, green, purple, and blue. I never thought meat could be so nauseatingly beautiful.

Yeah, and there's always at least one genius who tries to pour a cup while it's still running. Last time my brother did that, he just stared at the drip for a few seconds, as though he couldn't quite figure out what was going on.
I guess maybe you had to be there. But it was a crackup.
