Life as a domestic goddess-in-training hasn't been without it's failures; while my Kumara and spinach gnocchi, Deli salad, Cottage pie and Grilled asparagus with broad beans and penne pasta in creamy sauce were all big hits with the boy, some dishes were so bad we had to throw them out and eat pizza instead:
Warm lamb salad - It's a dish I love when ordered at a restaurant, but when I try to make it myself (with or without a recipe) the results are always iffy. Once or twice it's been nice, but I seem to have a real problem cooking lamb. In fact, the last time I made this, I gave myself a bad tummy.
Pork and beans - actually, I have a problem cooking pork with anything. Every time I cook pork (I haven't tried roasting it), it tastes really...I dunno...gamey.
Salmon Risotto - the recipe scored pretty highly on the easiness scale, but it's confirmed my suspician that I shouldn't bother cooking anything with tinned salmon when the fresh or smoked kind is available.
Considering my history of giving myself food poisoning though, I'm probably doing okay so far.
