Sometimes my zeal to replicate a craft or recipe that I’ve pinned ends in disaster. Of course, I’m not alone in my Pinterest fails, and many websites exist soley to showcase the hilarious mess-ups of over-confident pinners like myself.
Last night, I was struck with a bolt of brilliance. I was going to make myself baked mozzarella cheese sticks. I had pinned the picture and recipe, and the pin looked like this:
Simple enough, right? How could I possibly mess that up?
I had Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs in my pantry and I had Jalapeño string cheese in my fridge, so the cheese sticks would have a nice little kick to them. So I preheated the oven to 425 and got to coating my cheese sticks in breadcrumbs.
Here they are on the pan. I popped them in the oven and set my timer for 8 minutes. To pass the time, I started washing dishes. When I checked my mini cheese sticks at 5 minutes, they looked perfectly normal.
However, when the timer beeped at 8 minutes, they looked like this:
Ummmm. Not quite what I’d had in mind. The great thing about cheese though, is that it’s safe to eat when it’s uncooked, so even when it’s all messed up and melted, it’s edible. And, as it turned out, delicious! (Although not particularly pretty).
So here you are, in true Pinterest Fail fashion….
