My cooking triumphs
Growing up I had a heck of a time making gravy and bread. My gravy always turned out lumpy and my bread always turned out hard as a rock. Now I can make a killer gravy and the lightest softest breads.
My cooking tragedies
Lemon meringue pie. I tried to cook this six or seven times years ago and every time I made it the lemon part would turn out soupy. I paid extra attention to making sure the seal between the lemon and meringue was closed but apparently not good enough. Since then I haven't bothered making lemon meringue pie.
