My cooking tragedies
Once I spent the time and effort to carefully craft a pie crust (back when that made me nervous) and I forgot to put sugar in with the blueberries!! My husband still teases me about that!

Low Carb Jambalaya
I loved this! I saved this recipe for times when I want an interesting low carb meal but happened to use it when I had family members over. I made it exactly according to the recipe but threw in some rice I had cooked separately at the end of the cooking time because of my company. Everybody thought it was delicious! The flavors were complex and balanced. The heat level was noticeable and almost on the edge for those who aren't accustomed to spice; for those of us who are, the heat was perfect - tantalizing, yet did not compete with any other flavors in the dish. I am looking forward to trying this again and I won't change a thing.

Coconut Cream Pound Cake
This is excellent! I just finished making this, following a few of the suggestions, such as reducing the sugar to 2.5 cups and processing the coconut for the batter. The taste and texture are superb! The sweetness is perfect. I frosted with a coconut/cream cheese frosting from this site and topped with toasted coconut. Decadent!

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese
I was so excited to try this recipe, but unfortunately was disappointed with it. I used blue cheese, almonds (per other reviewers), and then wrapped with bacon before cooking. They actually looked terrific when they were done, but I didn't like the flavors at all. Maybe I am just not enough of a date fan to enjoy this, but the date was overwhelming in my opinion. I noticed that it did taste better once cooled to room temperature, though. Thank you for letting me try this recipe though. I'm glad I finally gave it a try!
