My cooking tragedies
HA!HA! Where do you start? Rubbery seafood, um, oh, once I woke up at 5 am to make a German chocolate cake for my co-worker and substituted butter for oil and when I popped it out of the cake pan it automatically crumbled into infinity crumbs!!! Awful!

Fish Tacos
VERY impressive! I love the sauce! I was hesistant @ first 'cause of the strange combo of spices, I'm so glad I tried it. I made it for my co-workers and it was a hit! I didn't add the capers although, looking back I would now. I didn't have plain yogurt so I substituted w/sour cream and I used fresh dill. VERY tasty indeed! Oh, and I used catfish. Yummy for the Tummy!

Creamy Caramel Flan
I meant to rate this in 11/06. I made this once b4 the holidays to see how easy it really was (and gain confidence) it was DEELISH!!! I followed the recipe exactly. Thanksgiving came around and I decided to make it for my co. annual T-giving potluck. I added 1/4 can of pumpkin and 1 tsp of pumpkin spices W-O-W what a HIT!!! I've been invited to a Luau and I'm thinking of adding crushed pineapple (maybe puree) for a Luau type taste! I will update.

Pizza Dough III
Yesterday I decided to take a shot at making my own pizza crust. I read many reviews and decided after an 8-5 job this would be my best bet. SO easy! I used regular flour. It came out great! I added 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp thyme and 2 tsps of italian seasoning. I'm looking fwd to making again. Next time I'll do as others suggested and use a pizza stone (need to buy 1) and use corn meal at the bottom of pan. I'll also let it rise a bit longer and use 3/4 c of water for yeast mixture. I am so glad that although I didn't do some of these things IT was a HIT!!! Thank you!
