My cooking tragedies
I just can't fry chicken to save my life. I've disappointed my husband sooo many times with the promise of his favorite fried chicken and always mess it up!

Buffalo Chicken Dip
Oh lord. This was so salty I couldn't serve it. I used some blue cheese and some cheddar (as suggested by one user) and it ended up smelling really unsavory. Worst recipe EVER.

Cheddar Cheese Straws
these were more like pie crust strips than actual cheese straws. Next time I make them I'll use more shortening, more cayenne and add some parmesan to really give it a cheesy flavor. I'd like them to have more of a shortbread texture and less flaky so I'll eliminate the baking powder and water, roll them thinner and bake at a lower temp for a bit longer in the oven so there crispier.

You won't believe all the things you can do with cauliflower. It's a great low-carb option.
