Soaping and Cooking...

...do not mix!!

So I made 2 small batches of soap and put them to bed in the oven as I always do...anyone who knows me knows that I do not use it much beyond rare batches of brownies or cookies. So it is a good safe insulated place for my soap, plus it holds 8 logs.

Well I decided to be a good wife and actually make supper for The Hubs...and MMM biscuits sounded so good to go with it. So I preheat the oven....I NEVER preheat the oven. Lazy? I dont know I just dont. So I am cooking away when ...hmm...that is an odd smell....YIKES! My soap! Thankfully it was maybe 2 minutes in so it was a quick save and thankfully just 2 little containers to pull out instead of 8 logs.

So I learned my lesson...no preheating...WAIT, scratch that...maybe I will just give up on cooking again!! lol

I had a similar experience this morning. I have a habit of rubbing oil into my cast iron and sticking it in a hot oven. I then turn the oven off and leave it to cool. This morning I preheated the oven for something else and forgot the cast iron was in there from last night. I couldn't figure out what the smell was until I realized it was the oil on the cast iron smoking. Ugh. My kitchen did not smell good!

Your soap looks amazing by the way. I am going to have to enter your giveaway.

Thanks for the follow! I am now following you back.
