My cooking tragedies
My first chocolate from scratch cake . . . I didn't know that the shortening called for in the recipe needed to be Crisco. I used vegetable oil. It was a disaster. It was probably 5 or 6 years before I tried another scratch cake again.

Pasta Pomodoro
I thought this was very easy and very tasty. I used 1/2 package of linguine (because that is what was in the house), 2 cans diced tomatoes (with basil/garlic/orgegano), onion, garlic, balsamic vinegar, a splash of wine, about 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, dried basil, dried oregano and a bay leaf. I cooked it longer than the 8 minutes, in order to make the sauce a little thicker. I thought about putting some tomato paste in to thicken it, but didn't. Next time, I will use penne pasta and crushed tomatoes. It was difficult to get a bite of tomato and pasta on the same fork; using penne would make that easier. I will omit the chicken broth and just use a chicken bouillon cube (plenty of liquid in tomatoes), and two splashes of wine (white or red, depending on what's on hand). Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Goulash Supreme
I made this tonight and my husband had seconds. Therefore, 5 stars. I cut the recipe in half and we had enough left over for another serving. I didn't have stewed tomatoes, but did use 1 can tomato puree and 1 can diced tomatoes / green chiles. I read the comments about the pasta. I cooked all ingredients (except pasta) about 30 minutes, then added the pasta and kept checking for "doneness" . It took about 11 - 12 minutes for small macaroni; it would take more for larger pasta, like penne. I will make this again.

Cocktail Meatballs
I have tried similar recipes, using frozen meatballs (to cut on prep time) and grape jelly in place of cranberry sauce. I took them to pot luck lunch and they were all eaten!
