My cooking tragedies
Not my tragedy but my roommate while going through college years ago. It was our first Thanksgiving away from home and my roommate wanted to make a turkey. She had never cooked a turkey on her own and I was unable to help as I had to work. I gave her a recipe and explained how to cook the turkey. As I was leaving for work, I reminded her to make sure she cleaned the turkey and clean out the innards before cooking it. I thankfully came home from work early that day. As I entered the apartment the overwhelming scent of bleach hit me. I walk into the kitchen to find the turkey sitting in the sink soaking in bleach....my roommate was trying to clean the turkey! This cooking story really happened even though it sounds far fetched. Its one of the funniest things that I'll never forget.

Pumpkin Cake III
Made as directed, easy to make but very bland. Next time I'll add some all spice, nutmeg and a bit of ginger. I baked in two smaller round pans to make a layer cake and it needed 50 minutes to bake.

Black Magic Cake
Very good chocolate cake, one of the best out there. Make sure your pans are greased and floured well or your cake will stick, also make sure they are cool before removing from the pan. I tend to make this and then refrigerate overnight before removing from the pans. For the coffee, I'll save a cup from my morning pot and then add 4 TBSP of instant to the 1 cup or regular strength coffee.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
I love this recipe, however, I have found that it is much easier to cook on low for 10 hours and turn the slow cooker on before I go to bed the night BEFORE we want it. The next morning, I take a fork and everything falls a part on its own. I add more BBQ sauce, stir and place the crock pot in the fridge and off to work I go. When I get home, I pull the crock pot out, turn it back on high for 2 hours and serve....Letting it sit all day allows for the sauce to soak up into the pork.
