I'm always trying to perfect my cooking, not that I'm anything really special at cooking. So I joined this site to help me with that. I always look for the recipes with the highest ratings, which is probably why everything that I have rated has high ratings. I start with what others say is the best. I haven't been too disapointed.
My cooking triumphs
I made eggs benedict recently for the first time and unbelievealby they came out just about perfect! Used a recipe from this site. Wondering what wasn't quite so perfect about them. Ok I'll tell, I left the muffins under the broiler about 15 seconds too long. Slightly burned them. Proud of myself for trying, now for a Cheese Souffle....did I spell that correctly?
My cooking tragedies
Have prided myself on my chocolate chip cookies for years. But once...just once. I served them at a picnic and wondered why they weren't disappearing like usual. I hadn't tasted them you see, it was one of those days with lots to get done in preparation for a party, and I was too busy or worring about my diet. When I finaly tasted them....I'd left out the SALT! Made a world of difference believe me.
