    Makes me wonder what they do differently.

    I've seen a lot of alfredo sauce recipes that call for cream cheese to be added, but that just sounds horrible... >_>
    I really only think some recipes want you to use cream cheese for the consistency because it's so creamy when melted down... If you use that though it seems like you have to pile on a lot of parmesan or romano cheese to cover up the flavor.

    If their sauce stands up to reheating, my suspicion is that the restaurant is using a pre-fab sauce. Shame, restaurant! I agree with you about cream cheese...that sounds vile.

    i found out why the directions on the can of tomato soup says use water or milk and nothing else. I used half and half and i like the taste but its thick and the texture is weird.

    Frying fish: I figured I could just flip it over, like other meat. The fork ran through it like scissors through paper. So, I tried a second time, but didn't put enough oil in the pan, so it stuck, and when I tried to pull it off, it ripped to shreds again. Third time, I think I've got it.

    I start out making whipped cream and end up with butter more often than I care to remember. Not that it's bad, fresh churned butter is really great but I have to start all over again to make whipped cream. The reason is twofold 1) I have a professional strength Kitchen Aid and 2) I tend to walk away from it for too long.

    One day I got bored.
    There was a massive piece of apple pie that was about 5 days old on our kitchen counter.
    So, I decided to be a smart ass and microwave it for 45 minutes.
    Neddless to say, it did not stay in the whole time.
    By the 19 minute mark there was a thick cloud of white smoke eminanting from the seams of the microwave door.
    I opened the door, and was knocked down by the cloud of nuclear particulate apple toxins.
    Once the smoke cleared, I looked inside, and all that remained of the huge piece of apple pie was a black, crusty, gooey pile of toxic filth. :horor:
    I had to open all the windows and doors in the house for over an hour just to get the smoke out.
    I used both cans of Lysol in the house and it still didn't kill the odor entirely.
    THAT - is the worst "cooking blunder" I have ever committed.

    i've managed to burn water by forgetting i had it on the stove more times than i can count.

    i tried to make a baked potato for the first time the other day and it ended up way undercooked. i had it in there for an hour! who would wait over an hour for a potato? so not worth it.

    You could get some potato nails, they help bake them a little bit faster.
