My cooking tragedies
Newly married, I made a chicken casserole and put in raw chicken. I dropped the second lasagna I ever made when I was pulling it out of the oven. I cried, and my sweet husband cleaned it up for me.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
I followed suggestions of many other reviewers: I skipped the water and used 16 oz. of chicken broth instead, I flattened the biscuits and cut them into strips and added them for the last 90 minutes, and I added seasoning - 2 t marjarom, 2 t sage, 1 t thyme, 1/2 t rosemary, 2 t parsley, and 1/2 t celery salt.

Carrot Cake III
I can't belive how many positive reviews this cake has. The baking time is way too long. The cake crumbled to pieces when I turned it out onto the cooling rack. The taste was bland at best. It was a bad experience all around. I'm off to try the next carrot cake recipe here.

Chocolate Trifle
This is a really easy, very impressive dessert. Following other suggestions, I used a pint of whipping cream and 3T of sugar added into the pudding mix, water, and condensed milk mixture, instead of Cool Whip. I also use French Vanilla Cool Whip for the 12 oz. that you layer. My layers were brownie, caramel, pudding, Heath, whipped topping, repeat, then put caramel and Heath on top. I have made it three times so far. The second time, I was in a hurry, and only refrigerated it about four hours and it wasn't as good. Definitely refrigerate it overnight!
