My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving Dinner 2010. My first time hosting Thanksgiving, I made the entire meal by myself except for the rolls, and I can honestly say I nailed it! Roasted turkey, homemade noodles (great-grandma's recipe), homemade cranberry sauce, green beans, mashed potatoes, and buttered corn. The bowl of cranberry sauce from one off the tables was actually licked clean! It was fun to cook the meal, and having everyone love it so much was an amazing feeling. I love holiday cooking!
My cooking tragedies
I tried making cream cheese frosting for the first time. It was for my husband's birthday cake. I failed miserably. No where near enough sugar, and the consistency wasn't right. It was also the first time I iced a layered cake. Needless to say it was NOT edible, but my husband and I laughed a whole lot. I've since decided that I'm not a fan of cream cheese frosting no matter who makes it, so my next homemade icing attempt will be buttercream. Hopefully it works out much better.

Kentucky Biscuits
These were decent, but just didn't turn out quite like I thought they would. I might try making them again with a little less butter. This was my first attempt at homemade biscuits, so considering that, they were pretty good :-)

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas
My husband and I loved these! I left out the brown sugar, and used a little more salsa...not sure how much, just a couple extra spoonfulls because we love salsa. I heated them in the oven instead of a skillet so they'd be done at the same time. Buttered two cookie sheets, laid down 4 of the tortillas, layered cheese, filling, more cheese, top tortillas. I brushed the top tortillas with a little melted butter, baked at 350 for 9 minutes and then broiled on low for about 2 minutes. Delicious!!!

Valentino's Pizza Crust
I followed the recipe ingredients exactly, but let it rest for closer to 20-25 minutes. I spread the dough out onto a lightly oiled pan sprinkled with corn meal. Then I sprinkled the top of the dough with oregano, basil, and a little garlic powder. Baked on the lower rack of the oven for 5 minutes, then took out and added sauce, minced garlic, and mozzarella & provolone cheeses, and brushed the crust edges with a little olive oil. Baked for approx 14 more minutes on the middle rack. Pizza was very good, and the crust was very thick, which I like. So if you like thin crusts, you'll want to use a very large pan or make two pizzas with this recipe. I will definitely make this again!
