This is what happens when you forget for an entire day that you have bread dough rising on the counter.  It takes over your counter, drips onto the floor, and generally turns into the bane of your existence.

    That is a lovely mess!  This is why I NEVER make bread.  LOL

    That is the coolest mistake I’ve ever seen.

    Oh man!  I have done that before, although it wasn’t nearly as cool and dramatic!  I started my own cooking blog, and it already has a few “Oops!“ listed.  Although I didn’t get a chance to take a pic of when my ENTIRE dinner wound up on the kitchen floor.  Complete destroyed!

    Kyla - IT WAS AWFUL!  No, seriously, my dad and my sister came over to help out.  One watched Charlotte and the other helped wash dishes and the counter while I tried to salvage the dough.

    The bread?  Not so tasty.

    Lauren - LINK!  I NEED A LINK!  What is this cooking blog of which you speak?

    Heehee, I can’t help but laugh! I made a cooking faux pas this evening when I set a platsic plate on a hot burner. Nasty mess + gross smell = more work for mommy! Oh well, it gave me the oppourtunity to explain to my children the dangers of a hot stove :)

    Sometimes I let my dough rise in the fridge, if I know I have to run out for an appointment or something but I still want to make bread.  It still rises, just more slowly.  But not so slowly that you can forget and procrastinate for a day.  Just saying.

    Erin - That’s what I usually do too.  But this time I just forgot.  Completely and totally forgot.  SIGH.

    From reading your blog I know you are an expert researcher, so you probably already have checked out or own # 48 on this 50 Best Cookbooks list, but I’d thought I’d send it to you anyhow.
