My cooking tragedies
Too many to list, but I've learned from each failure, but the most memorable was the under-cooked turkey for Thanksgiving. It was so under-cooked that the inside was still bloody red when we cut it. What a disaster since I had about 15 people foaming at the mouth ready to tear into the turkey like it was the last bird on earth.

Upside Down Pumpkin Cake
I made this for Thanksgiving and it was well received, but mine was more pie than cake. However, I loved the cake mix crust. I mixed cinnamon chips in the pumpkin and used pumpkin pie spice and it was quite tasty.

Cajun Skillet Surprise
I love this recipe, and my family and friends love this dish. They love it so much that I must double everything and make a pot of it instead of a skillet!

Costas French Market Doughnuts (Beignets)
Great recipe - followed it to the letter, but I found the dough too soft to keep my shapes consistent, when putting the in the deep fryer. Other than that, they were a big hit at the 'Nawlins themed baby shower. I will be making these again in the near future. This is a very easy recipe.
