My cooking tragedies
When I was 23, I wanted to make my famous spaghitti sauce to impress my boyfriend. I went to the market and saw these adorable little red and orange peppers. I bought them along with the ground beef, tomatoes, etc. Once home I started cooking my sauce. Chopped onions and garlic, cooked the beef and added the tomatoes. After simmering and adding spices, it was time for the peppers. I took the cute little peppers out and washed them. Then I diced them and added them to the pot. Owwieeee. Whats happening? My hands are on fire. OMG! 3 hours later, when my boyfriend arrived, I had my hands in a bread pan, filled with ice, water and corn starch. The tears rolling down my cheeks. We tried to dilute the sauce but it was not edible. I learned a valuable lesson about cute little peppers that day. My boyfriend and I married and have been together for 23 years, hot pepper blunder and all.

Sweet and Sour Sauce I
This is a great base. Just changed a few things, different vinegar, chopped garlic. I use this base all the time.
