My cooking tragedies
my first, second, and third time making a pecan pie ended rather oddly. The first time we had something resembling soup, the second was like a pecan candy, and the third....well.... it seemed to be okay until you tasted it. We still don't know what happened to that one to make it so nasty

Cajun Chicken and Sausage Gumbo
OK... next time we will use only half the roux as originally called for. I scorched the first batch so my husband (from southern LA) made the second batch for me. We added a lb of okra towards the end. I was afraid of how much NuNu's to put in so used very sparingly... next time we will at LEAST double the 1/2t. we did use. We didn't use chicken broth just water. Also I was instructed (by hubby) to leave out the bay leaf therefore we just tossed in the already cooked chicken and simmered for the one hour. after the hour we had to add another 1 1/2 cup water.. it turned into something resembling gravy and after the water still a little too thick. But did smell delicious! I can't wait to make this again!!! Even my picky runts ate it up so definitely worth trying!

Italian Fig Cookies I
ok YES they make a LOT of cookies! I however am assuming I screwed up somewhere since I ended up adding the entire cup of water and the fig mixture was still completely solid (almost burning out my food processor). The only thing I think I messed up was not adding the orange peel in. Also I added the flour in without a problem and when I added the milk in... am I supposed to add it all in? Because after one cup it was literally soup in my bowl, so I added some more flour and kept my fingers crossed. They taste good even if the fig mixture was dry but not as good as fig newtons...

Charleston Shrimp 'n' Gravy
OMW!!! It was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly except for not having any seasoned salt but I did have tony's which is pretty much the same just spicier so I added a little less of that. It was so delicious I can't wait to eat it again! It is definitely going to be something we make often in our house, even my 2 picky eaters devoured it!
