My cooking tragedies
I burned Cheese Soup so badly I had to bury the pot in the backyard.

Toscana Soup
Like many reviewers I made some substitutions. Instead of Breakfast sausage I used hot Italian Sausage, instead of chicken base I used chicken broth (33% fat free), and I added fat free half and half rather than heavy cream. I liked my version better than the restaurant version.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya
Like other reviews mine was soupy so I removed two cups of liquid and used it with 2 cups of water to par boil my rice. After 6.5 hours of cooking on low I added my rice and raw, tail on shrimp. 20 minutes later the shrimp were perfect and the rice absorbed lost all reminding liquid. I didn't measure the spices, I eyeballed it. It worked for my Mom and Wife...and it was awesome. I added no extra salt or pepper, it was fine as is. Instead of chicken I used chicken and jalapeƱo sausage from Kroger. I also found Conehu sausage and used the Original version. I also added .75 lbs of frozen okra and 2 cans of Rotel. It was the bomb, best Jambalaya ever. I'm tempted to send Colleen roses if I could find her. Thanks!
