My cooking tragedies
... raised by a mother who couldn't cook, as evidenced by the firefighters who visited Christmas morning as a Child. I had to learn early to say the least.

Green Chicken Enchilada
This was a good starter recipe. But, a little too bland even for my mild taste buds. So, after shredding the chicken, I mixed in a small can of green chiles and the cheese. Then I rolled the enchiladas with the mix and topped it with the green enchilada sauce and cheese. Don't bother waiting till 5 mins before it's done. That just means your cheese won't be melted completely in most cases and your oven will lose heat because you opened it. It was still very mild, so we will likely be adding some hot sauce to the chicken next time.

Elk Shepherd's Pie
Good recipe... But technically, wouldn't this be "Hunter's Pie"? Just a thought. Shepherd's pie is lamb. You know... From the "Shepherd's" flock.

Roast Goose with Port Gravy
The goose was fantastic! I made it for my annual Christmas party and it was utterly demolished. I don't think a pack of coyotes could have left a cleaner set of bones! We made two major changes: First, I put a traditional cornbread stuffing with chopped carrots, celery, and onion in the cavity instead of what they suggested. Second, the gravy didn't turn out very well by out family's gravy standards, so very little of that was consumed. However, a guest discovered that the goose was ABSOLUTELY AWESOME when eaten with a bite of the spinach artichoke dip. Who knew?!?! We will definitely make this again... Just skip the gravy.
