Looks JUST like the picture, right?

It’s not a secret that I’m no cook.  Dinner in my world is some chicken.  Maybe some potato chips to go along with it and if karma is really flowing, I could add some mac & cheese. 

But I can make a mean pan of brownies (Betty Crocker Turtle are my favs 😉 ) and I do love to make appetizers.  I figure if I have friends over and make appetizers, at least 1 or 2 will be good and the other ones will just get pushed to the back of the table.

So, I found this new recipe for Pizza Pull Apart Bread.  Mac’s sister, brother-in-law and friends were coming for the weekend and it seemed like the perfect time to try it.  (Mac:  you’re fixing something you’ve never fixed before for company?  Me:  They’re not company, they’re family.  Besides, your brother-in-law will eat anything…).

I reviewed the recipe, got the ingredients, printed the recipe so I could follow it closely and then read it and did EXACTLY what the directions said to do.

Here’s what it was supposed to look like:

fail supposed to be

Doesn’t that look Fabulous!  I mean…LOOK at it!  Perfection…pizza stuff, warm bread, marinara sauce…What could POSSIBLY go wrong!

Well, I could try to fix it and do EXACTLY like the recipe said to do, that’s what.  Here’s what MINE looked like:


Ummm, yeah.  Not quite.

Although if you dip those little crunchy brown pieces in the marinara, they aren’t too bad….and yes, my brother-in-law did eat quite a bit of it 😉


Thanks for reading what I write!  If you like it, please share it with your friends, on facebook, twitter, the library, the ladies room…Wait.  Never mind on that ladies room thing….


  1. Never ever make something new for company! I learned this the hard way years ago. Only tried and true for company


  2. Ha! Looks EXACTLY like how mine came out when I made this recipe. I blamed the pan, too. It was tasty, though, and it’ll be made again as it had been requested by the fam. ☺


  3. Don’t be to hard on yourself! Looks to me like it may have been your pans fault!! Seriously, if you used a bundt pan that wasn’t heavy or not of good quality, it cooked the bottom to fast and not the rest. Try a different bundt pan, like a stoneware or Nordic ware and reduce your oven temp by 25 degrees. I think you’ll be a hit the next time! 🙂
