My cooking tragedies
Using CUPS instead of Teaspoons of baking powder when I was 10, making a cake as a surprise for my mom... And more recently setting off smoke alarms in my new apartment... I was deglazing a pan and the smoke detector had a hissy fit... I don't burn things, I swear...

Strawberry Preserves I
Delicious! I only had 1/2 lb strawberries, so quartered the recipe--worked great. Really had to turn up the heat and let it bubble for a while to get it to reach 220. The poor reviewers clearly did something wrong, as I followed the recipe to the T and am enjoying delicious preserves on some fresh-baked bread for breakfast. Can't be beat.

Pumpkin Cheesecake in a Gingersnap Crust
I've made this recipe twice. Once as written, and the second time modified into individual cheesecakes. First time it was wonderful--and the individual cheesecakes went over great as well. For individual-sized cheesecakes, just spray muffin/cupcake liners with baker's joy spray (or equivalent), and axed the maple syrup and hazelnuts from the recipe. Halved it... and ended up with 12 perfect mini cheesecakes. (A trip into the freezer is a must before removing the cheesecakes from the liners). Posted a picture. Great recipe!
