My cooking tragedies
When I was 13, I made pecan rolls for my family. The recipe called for 8 refrigerator biscuits but the package held 10. My mom asked me what I did with the other 2. Judging from the look on her face, "I threw them away" wasn't the right answer.

No-Cook Overnight Oatmeal
Wow, this was good. And so easy. And so customizable. I used my homemade almond milk instead of regular milk, and added fresh fruit the next morning plus a splash more almond milk to loosen up the texture just a bit. In my next jar, I added a tablespoon of unsweetened shredded coconut plus blueberries. In the jar after that, I added a few chopped nuts and fresh peach. There's really no end to what you can do with this excellent base recipe.

Simple Moscow Mule
So refreshing! I used Jamaican ginger beer and domestic vodka instead of Russian, so what would you call that? I also threw a sprig of mint in there just for looks. Because presentation is everything. Thanks for the recipe!

Aunt Norma's Rhubarb Muffins
As soon as I saw fresh rhubarb in the market, I knew I had to get baking. These turned out just great! Full disclosure: I used butter instead of oil (don't judge me) and I didn't add walnuts. Also, it turned out that my rhubarb measured at 2 cups instead of 1.5, so I just threw the whole thing in there. It was still wonderful. I especially love how easy it was to make a streusel topping with melted butter. Thanks for sharing this terrific recipe!
