In the past I've had some problems.
I burn things. A lot. Too many to count.
*first time I made the chocolate chip cookie pie that I love so much, the recipe called for 1 1/2 sticks of butter. I put in 1 1/2 CUPS instead-twice the amount called for. It never hardened, and was really rich, but pretty good.
*I forgot blueberries in blueberry coffeecake. Our company arrived as I was about to fold them in to the batter. They were rinsed and in the sink-out of sight. It wasn't until I returned to the sink to clean up that I realized my mistake.
*I've made the occasional loaf of bread that wasn't completely cooked in the middle.
Recently I made cinnamon rolls. I couldn't figure out why I didn't like the icing (though I'm not a huge fan anyway). Derek realized the cream cheese was too strong. The original recipe called for one 3 ounce package of cream cheese. I didn't notice the 3 ounces, and used a full brick of 8 ounces. It was definitely still edible though.
The worst mistake I probably made when I forgot to add brown sugar to apple crisp. I couldn't figure out where I went wrong, but Derek certainly did.
This weekend I had another butter issue with the chocolate chip cookie pie. I only use 1/2 cup of butter (1 stick). When I was preparing to make the pie, I set the butter outside to soften. It is such an easy recipe (1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, flour, butter, 2 eggs, and 1 cup chips) that I don't need the recipe. Well, I didn't think I needed it. But this weekend I forgot the butter altogether. I added extra chips, so I thought it seemed thicker than usual, but blamed it on the chocolate and peanut butter chips. Oops. We ate it the first night, but ended up throwing it away because it was SO hard!
Derek and I were laughing at all of these when he brought up how he recently doubled the Crisco in the chocolate chip cookies he was making. They weren't exactly good.

See, I have experienced some improvements, or at least one! What has been your biggest cooking disaster?
