You're making cookies that you've made billions of over nearly 14 years and don't realize it until too late that the spice jar of cayenne is the same shape, label color and just a slight shade lighter than the jar of cinnamon.

You make your signature dish and do the vegetarian version, so you run to the pantry, grab a small can of green chilies and put the whole thing in the egg dish, then realize that can of chopped green chilies is the same size, color and brand as a small can of hot with seeds jalapeno can that was in the pantry that an innsitter must have bought and put there because you NEVER would have bought it.

Yup...both happened this week. I need a day off.

The guests LOVE them! So much so, I'm thinking of making 1 batch of regular and 1 batch of spicy to have out all the time. They're telling me it was a 'brilliant' mistake. enlightened

Brilliance comes when least expected.

(even while baking cookies)

Some of the best inventions are brilliant mistakes!

Oh, totally get that.

I've made panna cotta and forgotten the vanilla. Got them all poured out, turn around and there's the vanilla right next to the stove.

Dh has twice this month written out checks for the wrong amount. Bill is $200.32? They got a check for $200. Cc bill so now we get to pay interest on everything we charged last month and this month.

Yes, I did. I like them, but they're probably a bit to spicy for some wimpy palates. There are chocolate chips in the cookies, so the heat goes well with the chocolate. I use 1 pound of butter for the recipe and I just hate for that to go to waste. I might make another batch and blend them together. That could be the right amount of heat.

The egg dish I could only serve to 1 room. They loved it, but it nearly blew my head off when I tasted it!

Chocolate is kind of woodsy anyway. The butter cuts the heat because of the fat content. You may also want to add some roasted nuts into the recipe and maybe some Mexican vanilla or some peanut butter Smiling

In fact, you can likely make them into sort of "sandwich" cookies with peanut butter between them to beat the heat Smiling
