My cooking tragedies
one year i made a batch of chocolate fudge(jello brand recipe)and i was in such a rush i stuck it in the freezer to get it to harden faster. well it did and i took it to my mothers for christmas and put it in her fridge. Well we totally forgot about it and i left it. My mother went to open the fridge and it fell out in a cholate liquid mess!
-Too much rum in chocolate mousse once
-Tried to tweek one of traditional chicken casseroles once and needless to say not even the dogs would eat it :)
