My cooking tragedies
A puff pastry appetizer with roasted garlic -- it became a sticky lumpy mess! I rue the day I touched frozen puff pastry. I definitely have not mastered its temperament.

Summer Corn Salad
Excellent flavor! I made the Tropical version mentioned by other members. This is how I modified the recipe: I left out the tomatoes. I used a medium red onion rather than a large basic yellow or white. I cut the oil in half, using only 2 Tb. of olive oil. I used rice vinegar rather than white vinegar. I added in 3 small snack-size boxes of gold raisins, 1 diced orange pepper, and a small container (about 1 cup) of diced pineapple, drained. My family loved it! Thanks! :) p.s. It does taste better if you let it sit in the fridge overnight.

One-Two-Three Cake
ATTN COOKS: DON'T FORGET THE EGGS IN STEP #2! :) Don't be a dork like me, and have to mix the 2 eggs in after you've poured the mix in the pan and swirled in the strawberry topping! I forgot until almost the last minute! Whoops! But I made this for a work party, and it was gobbled up in the blink of an eye. Very moist and tasty. I used white cake mix instead of the pineapple flavored mix. All was well in the end, even though my eggs were not as mixed in as they could have been ;)
