My mom said you can't burn anything in a crockpot - but I managed it! Cooking to me feels like chemistry class. (I barely passed with a D). My recipe box should be labled "Experiments." My mom is the best lab partner I've ever had. When she's in the kitchen with me, she can just about fix most of my cooking mishaps. Just about. My husband deserves some sort of medal. He eats all of my cooking and thanks me(!?).
