Cooking Fail

Here is today's cooking fail.  I was making short ribs for the first time.  I've seared the beef and the recipe says to pour a bottle of wine into the dish next.  As I am pouring (hot dish, room temperature wine), the dish explodes.  Glass everywhere.  It made it all the way across the apartment.  

The short ribs... that looked so good!!!

And the glass aftermath... 

What is your worst cooking failure?


  1. OH WOW!!! Were you okay? I hope it didn't cut you!

  2. A few small cuts, but nothing major...

  3. Oh man! I had the same exact thing happen once!It was shocking and dramatic, and not in a good way.

  4. Talking with my Mom today, I found out that this is a common problem among newer glass baking dishes... they explode suddenly. What a fail glass dish companies!
