Everything! I have no patience for marinades, though...
My favorite family cooking traditions
New Year's brownies and Dad's lasagna.
My cooking triumphs
Making a three-tier Williamsburg orange cake, complete with frosting, when I was 14.
My cooking tragedies
Cookies turning to brittle when I was trying to impress my new father-in-law. Curse you, Splenda...

Creamy Cajun Shrimp Pasta
WOW, was this spicy and salty! I followed the recipe because I wasn't familiar with Cajun seasoning. Big mistake. Next time I'm definitely going to cut it down to about a teaspoon of Cajun seasoning, and omit the salt. I was able to eat a bowl, but my fiance couldn't finish more than one bite. I think with modifications it could be great, though--hence the 3 stars.

Bubble Pizza
Really didn't like this. The biscuit was way overdone by the time I pulled the final product out of the oven, even though I followed the directions exactly. The toppings seemed disproportionate. I managed to eat one slice. Thought about experimenting with other toppings, but it's really the biscuit dough that's the issue...

Amish Casserole
I used whole wheat egg noodles and absolutely LOVED this. We ate leftovers the next day (something we rarely do) and just couldn't get enough of it. I can't wait to make this again!
