Well, I'm No Melissa Lester
This was my attempt at zucchini bread. When I went to put it into the oven, I did realize the loaf pan was really full, but I had no idea of the oncoming mess. I'm not a great cook (I'm sure you realized this the moment you saw the picture) but I can usually follow a recipe and do a pretty good job. Not today. And if you think the pan looks gross, you should see the bottom of my oven! Caleb kept asking me if it was going to catch on fire.
I was able to take off the top layer (the rest was still uncooked), put it in a new pan and bake it again. After it was all said and done, it actually still tasted pretty good. Chris just laughed and shook his head. When I'm cooking, nothing surprises him anymore!
I chose this title because I can never in my wildest dreams imagine how Melissa makes such beautiful and delicious food (I've been lucky enough to eat at her house), while keeping up with four kids. I caused this mess with only two children and one of them was napping! She amazes me!
