If you happen to follow Kate Hudson on Instagram, you may have recently scrolled past a picture of what looks like a giant, circular brownie. At first, we thought the actress was showing off her epic baking skills, but then we read the caption, and it made us chuckle endlessly.
The picture actually shows a pizza that's utterly burnt to a crisp, and the reason Kate shared this seemingly random snapshot is beyond relatable to moms everywhere.
Kate reposted the photo from her sister-in-law Erinn Hudson, who was documenting her personal "mom fail" of an experience with preparing a pizza for her children. In the caption, Erinn explained how she typically strays away from sharing food-related posts on social media, but she was "inspired by [her] mom friends posting all their yummy healthy homemade recipes," she sarcastically joked. She then went on to give hilarious step-by-step instructions for making the "perfect" pizza.
First, set the oven to 375 degrees and pour a tall glass of wine. After placing the pie in to bake, "DO NOT set a timer," she instructs. Simply sit back and sip your nectar of the gods. Although the recommended cooking time may be between 12 and 14 minutes, Erinn advises to "wait a good hour to get this perfect deep dark brown color or wait until you're hungry kids come and ask when the pizza will be ready." The final step? Drink more wine, naturally.
Thank you, Kate Hudson, for sharing this vital "recipe," which we may or may not be giving a try this week.
