My Greatest Cooking TriumphI made a Valentines Dinner for my parents one year. I think I was 18 at the time and it was the first full meal I had come up with on my own. I stayed at the library researching for the perfect meal to cook. I suprised them with a candlelight dinner for two and had the dining room all set up and the house set up for a romantic evening. They really enjoyed it and still talk about to this day. Now I plan all our family get togethers and I really enjoy creating the food and the atmosphere.
My Biggest Kitchen DisasterI would say that my biggest disaster (besides some of the meals I cooked when I was first married) would have to be making a Red Velvet Cake. At the time I didn't understand the difference between all-purpose and self rising flour. So needless to say I used the wrong flour plus added the salt from the recipe and it was a total disaster. The cake was so salty. Thankfully my Mom tasted it before we took it to church. :)
