My cooking tragedies
Seven years ago I attempted to make Thanksgiving dinner for my husband and myself. We were in Germany, so ingredients were hard to come by. Lots of substitutions and NOT FOLLOWING A RECIPIE resulted in a very pretty however terribly WRONG tasting dinner! It went in the t-r-a-s-h!

Garlicky Beet Delight
We love beets and order beet salads whenever we find them on the menu at a Restaurant. So we were already well positioned to love this. And we did! I only had three beets but stuck with the recipe and the dressing was not too much. Also added pepper and I used yellow and pink beets. Do boil with the skin on, they look so much prettier when peeled.

Oven Baked Chicken Teriyaki
Always looking for something to do with chicken and this was quick and easy. Hubby and kids said it was very good.

Heavenly White Cake
I made this cake as written and it was tasty and dense on the day I made it. I used a whipped cream frosting and layered in fresh strawberries. We enjoyed it. I could see though, how it could have been better with more milk and the folding in of eggwhites approach. The second day the cake was DRY and super dense, almost gummy. I think I will try the recipe again ( next time I make a cake) with the modifications cited in so many of the other reviews.
