What is your biggest cooking fail?
For me, red beans and rice holds that title. (The chocolate mousse that came out looking like poop is a close second).
Marrying a Southern-born man and living in the South for a number of years meant learning to cook things that I didn’t grow up on. Things like gumbo, jambalaya, and red beans & rice. Moving back home to Minnesota, I was eager to share my new found food loves with my family and friends. One problem, while I’d eaten red beans & rice lots of times, I’d never made it before. So maybe making it for a party wasn’t the best idea on my first try.
