Désirée Marie Townley, American, 32 Community Manager in Rome I always mess up with measurements and cooking temperatures. I burn everything. I had 3 years worth of misadventures with sour cream in Germany. I always bought the wrong thing. Sometimes whipping cream, yogurt, clotted cream, whole milk, creme fraiche, with chives, without… Everything you can imagine. I eventually built a neurosis and then mentally blocked the right choice simply by habit. Funny now, but it really was ridiculous.
