My cooking tragedies
Then there was the time I switched spinach for Swiss chard in a recipe for a simple, cooked spinach side dish. My daughter literally gagged on her first bite at the table, and the rest of the family didn't fare much better. Those were leftovers that got ditched!

Sausage and Lentils
I'm rating this 5 stars so others will try it with cumin! I totally doctored it up, and yes-then the 5-star rating doesn't really reflect the recipe as written; however, I think we loved what I did BECAUSE of the cumin (which I never would have thought to add). Having 5 kids, I doubled the recipe for our needs and then tweaked as follows: instead of all the water, I substituted 1qt chicken broth + 1 c water, then added 15 oz can diced tomatoes, 1 generous cup each of chopped carrots & celery, and a 10 oz jar of tomato pesto that I bought at Aldi's. I sauted the onion/carrot/celery in olive oil, then dumped everything else in. It was a bit on the soupy side, so next time I think I'll omit the 1 c water. We served the sausage on the side instead of in the lentils. Everyone ate it -from adults to oldest teen to youngest toddler.

Aunt Betty's French Dressing
I made this recipe for a taco salad. I only needed a third of the amount - and this recipe did wonderfully when adjusted to just make 1 cup total. My husband also said he liked the dressing. So- this will be one I'll make again!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
I have used this recipe successfully for about a year. 4 stars because (1) I recommend you flatten them with a fork or they won't bake right, (2) I recommend you bake them on foil so you can lift them off the sheet more easily and (3) I recommend you use 1 cup sugar only if you are using natural peanut butter because if your PB brand has sugar, you won't need a whole cup more! If you like peanut butter fudge, you'll love these cookies!
