Final Score (holiday cooking wins and losses)

I usually like to cook—or experiment in the kitchen, as I think of it.  But I don’t really enjoy cooking under pressure.  So, at times like xmas, I always dream a bit too big and get myself in over my head.  This year things started of with a couple fails and I though we were headed for culinary disaster, but in the end the tally ended up in my favor ;-)

Losses:

  1. First batch of fudge
  2. second and third attempts at re-canning our maple syrup for gifts

Wins:

  1. Pecan pie
  2. Second batch of fudge
  3. Ice cream sundae bar (Included in this list because it still involved planning and shopping, but I’ll admit it’s pretty fool-proof.  I probably should do this kind of thing more often!)
  4. Maple granola
  5. Apple pie
  6. Pineapple upside-down cake
  7. First batch of maple syrup
