Well. I did it.
The one thing I've been afraid of doing for...well...years.

See, many, many moons ago I copied a recipe out a magazine.
I believe it was for a grapefruit cake with a grapefruit frosting.
Sounds pretty good, right?
Well, it wasn't. It was downright awful.
I never could figure out why it tasted so bad when it sounded like it would taste absolutely divine.
A long time later I realized I had mixed up the measurements and added a tiny amount of grapefruit zest to the cake and WAY too much to the frosting.
Ever since then, and particularly since posting recipes on this blog, I've been pretty paranoid about doing it again.

Well, guess what? I did. biggest apologies to those who were brave enough to make the Fallish Carrot Ginger soup I posted last fall.
Tonight I made it again, and this time followed the directions on the blog.
I couldn't figure why it didn't smell quite right, but of course never bothered to taste test...I mean, it always tastes good!
Well, let's just say...err...I made a wee tiny typo and wrote the wrong measurements for ginger and...well, my instructions said to add one TABLESPOON of ginger. Yowza.
So that, my friends, is what I did tonight.
Let's just say this...I've been dealing with a headcold this weekend.
My sinus's are now clear.
And my mouth is shooting flames.

It should have read one (barely) TEASPOON of ginger!

I've corrected it on the post but of course I am now hanging my head in shame and hoping you'll trust me again. It IS a delicious soup...when it has the right measurements!

Now if you'll excuse me...I have a pot of soup to dispose of...


  1. And here I thought you were perfect! *wink*

    1. Ha ha!! Well know you know the real truth!! Lol!

  2. I hate it when I make a typo. Now you know and the soup recipe is corrected:):) It is good to admit our mistakes............XO, Pinky

  3. Everyone makes mistakes. I can't count with the whole population of Ottawa the amoungt of mistakes I make :0) Grapefruit cake sounds really good though
