An attempt at a "quick" chicken soup (boullion cube, water, onion, carrot, celery + seasonings) YUK.
My first attempt at a stew UGH (I procrastinated another attempt for over a year!
And "Angry Cookies" I was really pissed and baking chocolate chip cookies and for whatever reason (I probably mis-read my recipe) they came out horrible and greasy and gave everyone a tummy ache :(
