My Greatest Cooking TriumphI have tried so many recipes from tasteofhome.com, I don't know which would be my greatest triumph. I'm going to say Spinach Cheese Pie Olga, from the Scarsdale diet. 30 years ago, my husband and I went on it, and I made that recipe. Not a year or so ago he asked me if I knew what we haven't had in a long time. I immediately said Spinach Cheese Pie Olga, and that's exactly what he was going to say. A second would be French Onion Soup that my husband loves - he said it's the best he's ever tasted ... and we've been to some fine restaurants that serve it!!
My Biggest Kitchen DisasterWhen we first moved to Colorado from California, I wanted to make a very special cake to take to friends. I spent at least $15.00 on ingredients. However, one should also read the directions completely - we were now at 8,000' I put it all together (we were living in an RV) and put it in the oven. It smelled heavenly. Then it began smelling smokey. It was in a bundt pan and the batter began to run over the sides, like Mt. St. Helen, it filled the RV with smoke, a sweet, unpleasant smoke, it got in my eyes when I tried to get the pan out of the oven. It made a major mess inside the oven and the RV smelled smokey for days. I bought a cake for the event.
