My cooking tragedies
When I first got married I was making a Flan for my husband (I did not have alot of cooking or baking experience) and I was melting the sugar in a pyrex dish on the stove... needless to say it exploded! But, I learned very quickly from that experience :-)

Banana Crumb Muffins
This was absolutely a hit in my house and at church.I took others advice and added the cinnamon to the muffin batter.I used oil instead of butter in the batter and dark brown sugar. We had a breakfast at church and that was the first thing to go. I had 2 teenage boys beg me to make more! I doubled the recipe and it made 3 batches of mini muffins and I got 3 little bundts out of it too. Baked the minis at 400 degrees for 12 min. And the bundts at 350 for 15 mins. Awesome recipe! Thanks

Bacon and Tomato Cups
Great recipe! The only difference was that I added 8 oz of the shredded swiss cheese instead of 3ozand used light one knew the difference :-). I have tried this recipe about 3 years ago and used the grands buttermilk biscuits, I had difficulty with the dough. Found that the pillsbury flaky layers buttermilk biscuits worked best. Thanks for this tasty treat!
