My cooking tragedies
Where to begin: First time I cooked for hubby I added baking soda to the gravy instead of flour! As a new bride I set the lid of the pan on the stove and set off the alarm-burning my new pots and pans. I still have this problem: Starting some elaborate recipe, that I am SURE I have all the ingredients to only to find out at the end, usually late at night, when I am my scuziest,that I am missing a key ingredient!

Chef John's Stuffed Peppers
I was looking for a new twist on stuffed peppers and THIS IS IT! They look and taste amazing- I think it is the vingegar in the tomato sauce. I grabbed a hint from another site and rubbed the peppers with olive oil and broiled them for 10 minutes- Perfection :)

Olie Bollen
I was SO surprised to hear that this was a New Years tradition with the dutch, even though we made these EVERY New Years day- I thought it was just a family thing LOL! Our recipe did not use yeast and is very easy to make: 2 cup of buttermilk 3 tbsp oil 1 1 /4 cup sugar 2-3 eggs 1 tsp baking soda 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp salt 1 cup raisins 4 cups of flour. Mix all ingrediants and deep fry till golden . makes about 3 dozen YUM- bring on the holidays!
