I'm from the south so a lot of southern foods. My mother is also jewish so I've learned to make a lot of jewish dishes.
My cooking triumphs
Baking a whole Thanksgiving dinner all by myself at the age of 18 :) My jewish grandmother was so impressed, she told me it was as good as her's! ( which is a HUGE compliment!)
My cooking tragedies
Not had any so far, just every once in a while my meal doesn't come out as perfect as I'd like it.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge
USE HALF THE BUTTER, 2 TBSP ONLY!! Ok, so I've made this recipe a few times now. Once it didn't turn out, the other times it turned out fantastic!! The key is to only use 2 tbsp of butter, not 4 tbsp as stated in recipe. That's it! I tried making it the first time exactly as the recipe stated, that's when it didn't turn out right. The other times I halved the recipe's butter and its been PERFECT ever since. My family are fudge lovers and this is my go to recipe now as we ALL love it!! Best of the bunch, as long as you half the butter or you'll get greasy fudge that bleeds liquid butter through the top.

Pancakes I
No more Bisquik for us!! Our family are big pancake fans and I found with this recipe to be light and not as heavy and sweet as others. I used self-rising flour b/c I didn't have all purpose on hand so I just omitted the baking powder and salt. I also added a drop of vanilla flavoring. I was skeptical at first when the recipe called for only 1 tbsn of sugar but I followed it and it tasted perfect when you add the sugary syrup or powdered sugar to it. Great recipe and will be making more!
