2 cooking reflections

  1. breakfast cookies-

I chose to reflect on this lab, because it was a really fun lab to make, and they were really good. I enjoyed this lab because it was really enjoyable to make and it was one of our first cooking assignments. The product turned out really well, we didn’t burn them, they were cooked through perfectly. We had everything laid out nicely will the timer, and how we were going to clean the unit etc. It was really nice, because our group worked really well together and we had a fun time making it. It was also good because, our group really cleaned up well and we washed fast and got it all done in time to relax after. We didn’t run into any issues but when we did we just solved them easily without argument. We would sometimes question each other on directions, but we would solve that easily or just ask the teacher for the correct answer. If I were to do this lab again, I would maybe take it a little slower and not stress about time as much. Because it was our 2nd lab we didn’t exactly know how to get everything done in a timely manner, but now we have learned how to get everything done and have time to relax. Now, when we have done most of the cooking, the dishwasher will start to dish wash and start to dry so, we get a head start in the cleaning process. It I much less stressful when you are not as worried about cleaning your unit in time to go to your next class. It was a learning process, to figure out how the class went and how we were suppose to clean in time etc. This lab was overall really fun to bake, and it was a recipe that I would do at home and make for a to go breakfast food.

2. toad in the hole-

I chose to reflect on this lab, because it was our first lab and we were all really excited to cook our first dish. I enjoyed this lab because we got to learn every step into cooking “toad in the hole” and learning while we cook. Our product didn’t turn out exactly well, because the pan we were using got hotter than it should have and made our bread a little burnt. We had a group of 4, and 2 out of 4 of ours were very burnt. We did all try the non-burnt ones and they were really good. Our group worked very well together and even when things got annoying when we were burning things we just laughed it off and continued trying to fix the issue instead of getting frustrated with each other. If we got a chance to to re-do this lab I would try not to burn the bread. I would make sure we were using a better pan and watching how hot it got and what was the correct temperature. Overall, this lab was really enjoyable to make.
