If you look on the right hand side bar, you'll see I have a tag called "Domestically Challenged," well...because I am. I make many, many attempts to become a better cook/baker. And many, many of my attempts result in smoke alarms going off, scraping burnt pieces of food from pans, and eventually ordering take out.
I'm not completely useless in the kitchen, I've been cooking for myself for years, but the "challenged" part comes into play when I try to follow recipes and directions. For some reason, I don't feel the need to measure, count, or properly order things in the kitchen. So, yes, I acknowledge that many of my kitchen disasters could be avoided, but where's the fun in that?
This is a running list of my success and failures.
None of these recipes are originals of mine (and you can't copyright a recipe anyway) so feel free to steal away. But if you take any photos, please credit East Coast Calling, and shoot me a friendly e-mail to let me know - awindc(at)gmail(dot)com
