Baking cookies with my kids. Making pie at Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs

My cooking tragedies
Many instances of burning things (too many to name)

Rhubarb Strawberry Cake
Very yummy!! I also baked the bottom crust for about 10 minutes as suggested by other reviewers. I also reduced the sugar in the glaze by about a quarter cup, and instead of pouring it over the fruit while the fruit was on the crust I mixed it with the fruit then spooned in into the bottom crust- I think it coated the fruit more evenly. I took this to a cookout, and it was gone, many people had seconds. I will make this again.

Acorn Squash with Apple
Great, easy recipe (my favorite kind). The tip about peeling the squash was very helpful. I added some dried cranberries for a little extra flavor and color. Yummy!
