Nothing makes human beings happier than a nice freshly cooked meal made with love and effort (skill optional). So no wonder so many of us are putting on the aprons and rocking our inner Gordon Ramsay back at home.
And while many succeed in cooking something that ends up on their Instagram feed, others are not so fortunate. So this post is about hope and failure, failure and hope: kitchen edition, where dreams of tasty bites get shattered by the reality check of burned, overcooked, weirdly shaped and very unappetizing (in)edible artifacts.

Previously, pie artist and baking and cooking pro Jessica Clark-Bojin shared a few great tips and tricks with Bored Panda to help all of us out in the kitchen and prevent massive disasters from happening. "Kitchen 'mistakes' can range from the catastrophic, 'I forgot the pot roast in the oven and now the kitchen is on fire' to the more benign, 'I accidentally put paprika in the cookies instead of cinnamon,' but in most instances, they stem from the same thing: distraction and a lack of preparation."

Jessica pointed out that anyone who wants to improve in the kitchen should start by taking some time to think about and picture in their mind all the steps before diving in and starting to bake or cook. That way, you can avoid slip-ups, blunders, and setting your entire kitchen aflame. "Make sure you have all the ingredients you need before you start baking. Work 'mis-en-place' and have all the bowls, spoons, tools, etc. cleaned and out on the counter ready for you. Measure out dry ingredients in advance, and (if called for) portion out wet ingredients to chill in the fridge. Clean up pots and pans while your mixture bakes," Jessica shared.
