My favorite things to cook

My cooking triumphs
Clam Chowda! Also, I cook South of the border dishes like an Abuelita Mexicana.
My cooking tragedies
Rice. I cannot. To save my life. Cook simple rice. Nor can I get Minute Rice right.

Shortbread Cookies II
If I could give this recipe 0 stars, I would. These were definitely NOT melt-in-your-mouth shortbreads. They are extremely flour-y tasting, with a texture of 2week old biscuit/raw butter. Dipped half in chocolate fudge, but still couldn't get over the plain, bad taste. After a night in the cookie jar, they were almost rock hard. And even for shortbread, they were just bland. Like compacted butter and flour. Was wary about not using confectioner's sugar in shortbread, however, I had none on hand and this was one of the few recipes found without the powder. Next time, I will just follow instinct and buy it instead of making inedible snacks. Now I just can't get over all the butter wasted :(

Banana Crepes
great, as far as the crepe itself goes. I did not make this sauce as I had a craving for chocolate and spread and drizzled Hershey's hot fudge over the whole thing, and crumbled a wheatmeal digestive biscuit over it. The sauce, however, does sound good and I will be trying it. But this crepe recipe beats the one I was using before, so 5 stars!

BBQ Eggs
The BBQ sauce would have been enough to make these BBQ eggs. This is just too many seasonings for just plain old scrambled eggs. I'd rather have them plain, Not only do they taste better that way, they also don't look appetizing.
