Making birthday dinners for my children, giving them the choice of what they want, still do it today most every birthday.

Over 50 yrs of cooking, I have had many.
My cooking tragedies
I have had my share of those. My first pie was when I was 11 yrs. old and I wanted to make a choc. pie, somehow, I read the recipe wrong and put the pudding in the pie shell and then baked it. It was not a pretty site! LOL

Corn and Chicken Chowder
This soup was really good, but in the future I will change a couple of things. I will use some butter to saute the veggies in or fry up some bacon instead of the ham. The skim milk made it way flat and bland tasting. Maybe add a little more corn and use whole milk or half and half. Otherwise a wonderful soup for the Fall weather. I would use instant mashed potatoes to thicken it also.
