    My kid loves my food and so does my husband.

    Typical South Indian dishes and simple dishes like chole and paneer I manage well.It comes out tasty.savouries and some sweets I manage well.

    When it comes to Italian I do pasta and lasagna well..

    Rest no matter how hard I try..I don’t do it well.


    I am very bad at baking.Also I would not call myself a great cook and I see most women around me amazing cooks..

    These days since family is home,I try to make variety dishes and fail miserably at it..I feel so disappointed.

    I can understand working women do not get much time but still many do amazing dishes..Most homemakers I know are brilliant at cooking.

    I don’t why am mediocre in everything I do..after so many years am still not confident in cooking..

    they say “Kai pakkuvam” in tamil which means some women naturally have it when it comes to cooking and whatever they do is super tasty.My co sister who is so much younger than me is super brilliant in cooking and my mil always compares me to her..

    Today I made cookies..tried two times already.Came out burnt.My baby girl looked at my disappointed face and told me she loves my cookies..I know she said that not to hurt me but it was so bad.I wish I can do something nice for my child.

    Kids love baking. My 6+ yr old son loves baking and he always ask me to do some baking.
    You start with simple cake recipes. Find some YouTube videos and follow the same quantity and ratio. You will get it good.
    If you are not getting it proper every time, I would say try the ready made cake mix from the store. You can just follow the pack instructions and bake it. Pillsbury have many varieties.

    I think you are baking it more than required time. Keep checking often and take it out when it's golden brown.

    I’m an excellent cook if I say so myself, but I follow recipes quite religiously. If I stick to my reliable cookbooks and blogs the results are usually good.
    Baking is not my favorite activity as it’s not as forgiving as cooking. If your cookies are getting burned try using a thick cookie sheet and baking for a minute or two less. I used to have this problem when I used dark colored cookie trays.
    I now have Vollrath 68085 aluminum cookie sheets and the results are much better.

    Just what she said..

    Does it require a baking sheet...I did it on baking tray...could that be the major mistake?
