HOW I FIXED A BIG FAT KITCHEN MISTAKE
For 4th of July my father in law made his infamous fall off the bone bar-b-que ribs! I volunteered to make the mac & cheese. The pressure was on to produce some mouth watering mac & cheese, after all I was at my in-laws home – home to one of the best cooks I know; my Mother in-law! And then there is the fact that I am a food blogger so everyone was expecting goodness to come from my pans! BUT something when terribly WRONG! Or should I say terribly SALTY!!
Normally I taste my food as I prepare it but I was just seasoning my mac & cheese away, talking and laughing with people as they rang the door bell and flowed from the kitchen where I was working to the back yard in anticipation of all the good food that was to come. THEN it HAPPENED right before putting it in the oven, I tasted my mac & cheese and honey let me tell you, that was the saltest anything I’ve ever tasted. My arm must have been working over time seasoning those noodles! I thought OMG what am I going to do, I can’t have people eat this salty mac & cheese, what to do what to do, I was thinking umm do I toss it, then it hit me! Let me balance this salt with something sweet!
THAT SOMETHING SWEET SAVED THE DAY FOR ME … you ready for the tip? ………………… I added granulated sugar to balance out the salt … it worked like a charm and turned out to be one of my best mac & cheese moments ever, THE END.
moral of the story … always taste as you go
