My cooking tragedies
Roast spiced pumpkin seeds, not sure where I went wrong with the spices, but I went severely WRONG :-P

Chocolate Mint Candies Cookies
I made these for when my in-laws came to visit. My father-in-law LOVED them so much that he took the whole batch home with him. That's the definition of a GOOD cookie recipe :)

White Chili V
Really tasty! I don't have a slow cooker, so I sauteed some onions and garlic in a large pot, tossed the rest of the ingredients in the pot and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes, added the chicken in and allowed it to simmer for another 15-20 minutes and my husband loved it!

Apple Pie Bread
Awesome!!! I substituted whole wheat flour for half of the flour and applesauce for the oil. I also added 2 tablespoons of fat free sour cream. I used 2 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of nutmeg in place of the cloves. The bread turned out moist & delicious and it was healthy :)
