My cooking triumphs
My First Thanksgiving dinner on my own. I had about 25 guests and had never made a Turkey on my own. Everyone loved my dinner so thank god it all turned out perfect.
My cooking tragedies
One time I had made a dish that was topped with french fried onion rings.I had baked it in the oven and turned the oven to warm when the dish was done to keep it warm when I went to pull it out at meal time the onions on top were burnt black and the whole dish was ruined.
