I told the chick the frosting would go all to her hips, but she didn't listen...

My cooking tragedies

Best Egg Rolls
These were really good! I doubled the veggies and added some red pepper flakes to the cabbage mixture. I kept the meat seperate incase we didn't like them - so I wouldn't waste it. I'd just put a scoop of the veggie mixture and then a pinch of meat, and a gob of flour paste at the top and roll it up - worked great! After they were fried I placed them on a dinner plate that had the sesame seeds on it. Next time, I'll do this but line the plate w/ a paper plate first. I pan-fried them in an electric fry pan about 3 mins on each side, into a elongated triangle, sorta. It was good! For dessert, I took the leftover wrapper I had, slivered up part of an apple, sprinkeld with cin/sugar and put a gob of cream cheese in it and folded it in half (into a triangle) and sealed w/ the flour mixture. Fried it. Ate it. YUM!

Honey Whole Wheat Bread
This is my standard breadmaker recipe. I use butter instead of oil, and add about 3T of gluten. I love using the local honey in thei bread - it has such a richer flavor than the cheapo grocery store stuff.

I've made these twice - both times they came out metallic-tasting!
