My cooking tragedies
First was making a grilled cheese for my (then) husband, MANY years ago, using non-fat American cheese. The cheese never melted! Then I made a quesadilla for him - but the only other cheese I had was grated mozzarella. But when he ate it, he found that the cheese was moldy )= The second was baking an angel food cake for my son's 5th birthday. I took it out of the oven, inverted it on a bottle and left it "hanging" over the stove. I was washing dishes and heard a thud behind me. I turned around and the whole thing had tumbled over. Grateful that I had just washed the stove, I righted the bottle, hung the cake pan on it again, and went back to the dishes . . . A few minutes later, I heard another thud . . . This time when I turned around, the cake had fallen out of the pan! (The fall had loosened the cake!) (I was again very grateful for the freshly washed stove top!) I placed the cake on a plate and we all just ate it with our hands.

Monkey Bread Kabobs
For Recipe Group (= This was the big hit at our potluck! I used large buttery biscuits, and Truvia and Splenda baking mixes for the sugars. I used four biscuit quarters, alternated with three Fuji apple chunks, and bookended with the maraschino cherries, per kabob. I wanted to serve it with caramel sauce for dipping, but forgot to grab it as I was running out the door. Honestly, it did not need the sauce.

Frozen Peanut Butter Pudding Squares
I did these way late for Recipe Group. And tweaked them all over the place (= I used sf, ff vanilla pudding and nf milk. I also mixed in a dollop of Cool Whip. I made sandwiches with cinnamon grahams, vanilla wafers, and chocolate teddy grahams. Mom loved these - and I was afraid I wasn't going to have any to take to work (= I liked all three variations.

Strawberry Gazpacho
My daughter and I loved this. Mom liked it. Daughter's [picky] bf only took a couple bites. Daughter's client couldn't quite get the concept of a cold soup, so he put it on a chicken taco and his cauliflower - like a salsa (= Slightly tweaked . . . I left out the tarragon and parsley, and I threw everything, except about half a pint of strawberries, about 1/3 the cucumber, and the avocado, in my food processor. Simple and yummy. Not sure I would make this version often - simply because I think I can get the grape tomatoes that I love at less cost than strawberries - but I would make it again (=
