I made the BEST homemade pizza ever and am now hooked.
My cooking tragedies
Too numerous to list. Most involve burning things while tending to my child. And there was this one time with homemade mushroom soup that actually cost me a blender.

Peaches 'N Cream Pie
I took this to a church Christmas party and won most creative. Then my husband requested it for his birthday pie. A winner!

German Chocolate Cake III
This cake had all the flavor. It was light, fluffy, moist and the icing was good enough to eat all by itself. This recipe is a keeper but I believe it does need a few alterations. I would definitely double the icing next time. I had enough to barely cover the whole cake but would have loved more. The center layer was very skimpy. It was very crumbly, which made it hard enough to cut. Maybe adding more flour as some other reviewers suggested would help? I also omitted the chocolate drizzle. It seems like overkill to me & I'd never had it on german chocolate cake before.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
I quartered the recipe initially & discovered that the recipe does need added granulated sugar to differentiate these cookies from biscuits. I also rolled them very thin because how much they spread & was also ridiculously liberal with my dusting of powdered sugar to be able to roll & cut the sticky dough at all. Definitely not 'The Best' for me, but maybe next time I can try adding a cup or two of both powdered sugar & granulated sugar and see what happens.
