My dear husband decided to bake biscuits for me this morning because I have a long home visit to do this morning. He was so excited. When the timer went off I heard him say, "shoot!" Or the non-DIS equivalent. He had laid 6 frozen biscuits directly on the oven rack. As they warmed, they sagged through the rack onto the bottom of the oven.

Just curious,guys...what would make someone NOT use a pan??

People unused to cooking can do funny things. When my mother was in the hospital having my brother (and week long stays were common 60+ years ago) my dad decided to bake a cake.

He thought that if a little baking powder made it rise, a lot would make it rise more. Yup. It was a brick.

Totally sounds like something my DH would do.

Once, he'd been out in the yard all day and came in and "helped" me by patting out the hamburgers to go on the grill. I asked him about halfway in if he'd washed his hands, and he said, "Why would I wash my hands before handling raw meat?"

Poor guy. I had to throw that meat out and go get more.

In all fairness, did these biscuits come with directions or were they ignored? Oh wait, he would not have read them anyway, right? Or you could be like my dh. He has to call me with every step by step detail.

One of our DD's close friends (more like a 3rd daughter to us) slept over and she wanted to make me tea in the morning....a very nice gesture but when I came downstairs I smelled plastic burning.....poor thing didn't realize our tea kettle that was on the counter was electric and put the kettle on the burner. The whole plastic base melted onto the stove. She felt awful. Kiddingly, I said...did you not see the cord attached to the outlet?????

It was sweet of him to try. Why, just two days ago.he.tried.to.make.me some.corn dogs. He read the directions.then tossed.them.aside. First, he microwaved the corn dogs.for.a.couple minutes.then put them in toaster(!) Needless to.say, they were black in just a minute or so.

DH is not unknowlegeable about cooking. He just gets these ideas, then gets tired and tries to take shortcuts. The biscuits and corn dogs STILL can't top his Asparagus Lasagna.

Lack of culinary skills isn't limited to men.

My ex-wife once offered to make me a hamburger while I was working in the yard.

When she called me to tell me it was ready, I thought I must have lost track of time..no way she could have cooked it so quickly.

Sure enough, I bit into what was essentially raw meat. Once the outside was brown, she assumed the burger was ready.

My stepdad tries to help out every Thanksgiving. I walk into the kitchen to find the oven set on 500. He thinks by turning up the temp, the food will cook faster.

Thanks for the laugh Minky!

I did something like that once. I tried to make chocolate chip cookies from scratch but was out of brown sugar, so I substituted with maple syrup. I think I miiight have put in just a liiiiitle more baking soda than I should have, because when they were done, they were biscuits.
