Learning to bake bread with yeast and not screwing it up.
My cooking tragedies
Moved in with my boyfriend in college and burned the first thing we tried to cook (frozen pizza of course).

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread
I added pecans to these. They were good but not great. They seemed a bit greasy. I'll try other shortbread cookies to see if I can do better.

Mom's Ginger Snaps
These are delicious, and get better with age. I actually am going to try other ginger snap recipes before I try this one again. I want to try some that are more spicy or snappy, I guess.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
These are crowd pleasers. They are popular of course because of the peanut butter cups inside. Otherwise, they are definitely delicious, but not discriminating.
