While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

What a hot mess – June 13 is National Kitchen Klutzes of America Day!

Does your sister spill the pot of soup she’s been working on for hours?  How about that friend who ends up wearing every ingredient from dinner?  And the man in your life who doesn’t put the lid on the blender before pushing ‘start’?

Ahh yes, we can’t help but love our kitchen klutzes.  They cook wonderful things for us, but can’t make a great dish without creating a great big mess.

So today, save them the cooking scars and make them something special in return as a way of saying thanks.  They’ll be just a little bit safer from themselves.

Just don’t pick up your own scar while wearing the chef pants. Just in case, you might want to know where the professional-grade glue is.

    The worst kitchen disaster we've had was when my hubby was chopping celery for tuna salad – while drinking Heineken. Yep, you guessed it. He was just tipsy enough to lose his concentration and sliced a 1 inch-long gash in his index finger. It wasn't deep enough for stitches, but he got out of chopping duty for a while.

    Lesson learned? Don't drink and drive knives either.

    I had one of those wall ovens about waist high and one Thanksgiving, I checked on the bird, and slid the rack out to baste...well the bird was so heavy it slid out of the oven onto the door, then right on the floor and slid all the way across the kitchen floor where it was stoppe by my boom box radio (it was the 80's ok) on the floor. That radio had stuffing in the speakers for years.

    I think the klutziest thing I ever did in a kitchen was to spill an entire pan of lasagna all over the fridge and floor. Mother of a mess to clean up.
