My cooking tragedies
When I was first married my husband liked me to cook beef ring he mentioned it would be better if I peeled the skin. So I did and burned my little fingers. Come to find out he was joking and felt really bad. We joke about it today and I tell him he can never doubt my love for him I would go to any length to make him happy.

Hash Brown Casserole I
I have been making this for years and it is my husbands favorite dish!! I leave out the hot pepper sauce, butter and round crakers. I add 1/2 red onion, only 1 can of cream of chicken soup (however at the holidays I use cream of celery since some family cannot have chicken). I also use 4 cups of shreded cheese and leave some to sprinkle on top. It is a hit at any function I take it too. The biggest differance for taste is to make it a day ahead of time then reheat the day it is serverd. It gets happy resting overnight. Some foods are just better the next day. I also have served the leftovers for breakfast the next day... if there is any left. If you double the batch make sure you make 1 then make the next. It turns out better if you don't just combine double ingredients at once plus it is easier to stir at one time.
