OOPS!!! Boiled Artichokes
…What’s your name again?
This is an AMAZING Tunisian dish that is usually served right after a meal… it is healthy, easy and has the power to pause time. In Tunisia it is called “Ganariya Maslooka” I didn’t get it for a while…it sounded perfectly fine to me… When I first said it to my husband he just said “Whaaaaaat?!” It was only when I expanded my English language that I learned – this Tunisian name could potentially have problematic connotation. 🙂 I was smiling at the fact that I was still ready to have it as the head title, but after rethinking this one – I think this name is a perfect oops moment. 🙂 Lost in Translation …you can say that again. And now that the real name is out there, see why this dish is served right AFTER a meal and how easy it is to make it? Checkout Afooda’s Boiled Artichokes Post.
OOPS!!! Checkout this TOTAL MESS! it is kind of my fault… Number one, I didn’t spray the cake pan GENEROUSLY enough. Number two, I was in a hurry so I started messing with the cake and tried to get it out while it was still warm… Well, if something is this yummy, it is worth a fix. This wonderful Dried Fruit-Walnut Cake is going to be O.K! All I did was to push the parts together – just like a puzzle. I also got my Powdered Sugar to the rescue and sifted some right on top of those cracks.
Problem Solved! Let’s eat some cake! 🙂 Want to see how it is really done? Checkout Dried Fruit-Walnut Cake post.
OOPS! These cake layers of a birthday cake just came out of the oven and it is pretty obvious to see what is wrong with them… I know… look at the bright side– at least they are not burnt. I know this cake will still be tasty and I can probably hide most of the unevenness with the cream, but this could have been easily avoided by a simple step – just making sure the batter is even and leveled before getting the pans in the oven. Note to self: Don’t underestimate the importance of a simple step. To see how to make an AMAZING birthday cake with all steps included check out the Vintage Happy Birthday Cake post.

OOPS! Shakshuka Monsters!!! I haven’t had the chance to share with you…
Once the Shakshuka was ready and I was ready to take my final photos, I saw my three little Shakshuka Monsters rushing to the kitchen – they were ready too…
-“Time to eat!” they told each other looking at me to confirm.
-“I’m just going to take a few photos and then we can sit; why don’t you set the table?”
I was trying to buy myself some time -“Bring your favorite plates and cups…”
They were ready in no time and I was rushed to take my last few photos.
I still had the camera in my hands so I snapped a few photos of them inhaling the Shakshuka. The whole thing was gone in a matter of just a few minutes…
and I was so happy… 🙂
