My favorite things to cook
Anything with seafood. Anything with fresh ingredients. Anything with lots of butter, cream, and sugar. Oh, and recipes with lots of steps.
My cooking triumphs
I love experimenting with new recipes, combining recipes, or making up recipes. So...anytime something great comes out of my kitchen it's a triumph! :o)
My cooking tragedies
I had a monkey bread disaster that had me running to the grocery store at 1:00 a.m. for the 4th go at carmel sauce. Total cooking self-esteem shredder! Was it my pan? Was the heat wrong? Was it just never meant to be? Who knows! But it remains a blot on my cooking career and my co-workers like to bring it up occasionally to keep me humble. One of them has since given me a recipe for Never-Fail Microwave Monkey Bread to assuage the pain...or rub it in :o) I haven't had the courage to try it yet and it's been 2 years...
