Do you ever have a cooking adventure? You know where you try to cook something that is really involved.

I have an on going adventure. I am trying to make Mexican Mole. I cannot get it to taste like my mothers. Grrrrrrrr

This is about the 7th time I have tried. I am still tweaking it.

  • When we were stationed in Italy I took 3 series' of cooking classes at 4 weeks each. So every once in a while I try to recreate the recipes I made. Pasta-check, crema catalana-check, torta martina-check, funghi strussel-check, tasty salad thing-check, fagotini(stuffed pasta, most delicious thing I have ever eaten)-not so good....

  • Yes, when I attempted to make Gordon Ramsey's Roast Beef & Yorkshire Puddings with Red Wine Gravy.
    I say attempted, it was edible but, definitely not up to his standards I'm sure.

  • Yes I have tried complex dishes. All except one tasted commonplace. The one that was exceptional was Cornish hens, they were so good. Fudge is something I just can't get right.

  • I made a pork loin that had an apple stuffing in it.
    It was so-so.

  • Wow if you're successful let us know

    .I am a failure at Mole. It has been years since I quit trying..I will go on line and find some tweaks for the jarred kind sometimes.

  • I made up a recipe for savory tomato ,spinach ,bread pudding.It was a pain but turned out well. I have several Indian cookbooks ...everything is tough ...first tempering the oil and then on and on and on...and then it turns out just o.k.

  • Yep - I love cooking and baking so it doesn't phase me to do something more involved - though I do have to plan those into my week lol!
