My cooking triumphs
Probably my crab cakes and seafood bisque I made for a dinner party a few years ago. It was a fabulous party with fabulous food. It was the first time with each recipe, which is a HUGE gamble, but both came out GREAT.
My cooking tragedies
My senior year in college, I was having some friends over for dinner and I had been making sauce for spaghetti and meatballs ALL DAY. Just before everyone was to be there, I knocked the pot off the stove. I was devastated, but had just enough time to clean up the mess and run to the store to buy spaghetti sauce. Oh well. Glad it wasn't something impossible to replace at the last minute.
