My cooking triumphs
Impressing people (including the in-laws) with food every time they come over. I share my love from the kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
Ask my husband. I'm sure he has a few he could name.

Sophie's Zucchini Bread
DELICIOUS! I used frozen, shredded zucchini that had been thawed and excess water squeezed out, added 1 tsp extra cinnamon, then baked the batter as muffins at 375 for 15 minutes. PERFECT! Fluffy, moist, delicious!

Vanilla Pudding
Easy recipe, very good pudding. A good recipe to keep in your back pocket since most have all these ingredients at any given time. I read the bad reviews and saw many were complaining that it'd burnt, disliked its foamy texture, etc, which all scream 'user error,' not the recipe. A few mentioned it not setting up, but I followed this recipe exactly using 2% milk, refrigerated it for 2 hours in serving-size small bowls, and it set up perfectly smooth, creamy, and exactly as pudding should. My kids loved it.

Apple Crisp II
I followed the instructions of many-many reviews by doubling the crumble and putting half on the bottom, as well as halving the mount of liquid added. It was SO tasty, but a tad dry with all that crust. Next time(and there WILL be a next time) I'll again do the double crumble, but do the full amount of water called for. :-)
