My cooking tragedies
When I was young and dating, my roommate and I made a southern fried chicken dinner for a couple of gorgeous lads we were interested in impressing. Everything looked great until we got to the homemade gravy...we did not realize that it would continue to thicken and when the first person attempted to remove the spoon, the entire recipe came out with the spoon and was hanging there in the shape of the rounded bowl. How humiliating!!

Decadent Peanut Butter Pie
My boys love this pie with one minor alteration. For those who feel that it is too sweet & rich, try using a pretzel crust rather than the graham cracker crust. The salt compliments the sweet much better. Does not taste salty, but gives just the right flavor.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw
KFC where we live is nothing like this. We do, however, like KFC a lot. But, WE LOVE THIS ONE!! I have always been partial to a sweet slaw. Only thing I do differently is use celery seed instead of poppy and add a few raisens and nuts occasionally. Good stuff, although it makes a fair size bowl, it does not last long enough to get that soggy old slaw consistency because my family just snacks on it right along with the other TV snacks.
