My cooking tragedies
My worst dish ever was "health loaf" on the back of a box of veggie burger mix. Putrid would be a compliment- the color, texture and taste were all ghastly. It would make a vegetarian want to gnaw a live sheep. Will never live it down.

Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Pasta Shells
I upped the veggies by adding a bunch of scallions and chopped artichoke hearts. I punched up the flavor by doubling the fresh chopped garlic and adding fresh basil, and some red pepper flakes. For the sauce I mixed Safeway's Artichoke Pesto and a can of Muir's Glen fire-roasted crushed tomatoes . I reduced the Parm and subbed some low-fat mozzarella. While I loved it my daughter didn't like the fennel seeds.

Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus
Very disappointing on a number of levels- the flavor was off. Not actually unpleasant, but off somehow. My family did not like the texture- the nubbins of tomato made the humus seem gritty which was off-putting too. Lastly, the color was strange- an unappetizing brownish-salmon with flecks of red and green.

Apple Bread Pudding Pie
I skipped the pie crust- too much going on. But I really liked the streusel topping. It is a nice change in texture from the usual bread pudding. I used raisin swirl bread and some leftover panettone, so I cut back on the sweetener I also used Santa Cruz brand apple blackberry sauce instead of plain apple. It gave the pudding a darker, but still pleasant color. Because there was already raisins in the breads, I added some dried cherries. It worked well.
