6 Things That Happen While You're Cooking

What makes you either love cooking or hate cooking

Cooking is one of the many joys in life for lots of people, but for others, it is their worst nightmare. Some spend hours on end on YouTube or Facebook, watching Tasty videos and drooling over the food, but knowing that it would not be worth the trouble to make it when they could go to a restaurant and not go through all the motions of making the food.

But once you do start actually cooking, whether you are good at it or not, these are 6 things that can often happen.

You think about starting a blog.

But then the food doesn't look near as good as you imagined it would, so instead of fancily plating it and taking photos, you just eat off of paper plates. Hey, you're saving time by not washing dishes and by not having a blog!

You start to wish you wouldn't have started preparing the meal as you see the dishes pile up in the sink.

The more used kitchen tools you throw in the sink, the more you question if this meal attempt was really worth it.

You spill something.

As if your kitchen isn't hectic enough, you manage to spill something onto the floor. Maybe your dogs will lick it up for you, but you're probably going o have to lay down a dish rag or turn off the stove to attend to the situation.

You forget an ingredient.

You know what you do when you have already sprayed the muffin tin and poured the batter in when you're making cupcakes as a midnight snack and you realize that you forgot to add the eggs? You scrape the batter out, spray off the muffin tin, add the eggs and pour the batter right back in.

The end result will never look like the picture from the recipe.

From now on, just cook from recipe books that don't include pictures, to avoid getting your hopes up.
