Are there foods you just can't make no matter how hard you try?

  • Mine is chocolate fudge. Have you tried the cake recipe on the back of the Hershey's cocoa box? Even I can't screw that one up. I keep trying bread. I finally found one I couldn't screw up. Maybe it's not you. Maybe it's your stove.
