My mother taught me to cook when I was just big enough to stand on a stool by her and learn. I remember the first pan of homemade gravy I made. I burned it so badly it was not edible. I put it out for my dad's hunting dogs and even they wouldn't eat it! I still have a problem with homemade gravy to this day!

My first attempt turned out like wall paper paste. So you are in good company. I have not made homemade gravy since.

I remember when I tried making pie crust and nothing would eat this tough dough. I too still have trouble making a great pie crust.

Dont feel bad I had a friend, who put baking soda in her gravey thought it would thicken it up.

I can't make a scratch gravy to save my life but my step mom shared her great gravy secret!

OOPS! She takes the pan drippings and mixes them with a can of cream of mushroom soup and mixes well. Turns out great every time and without those ugly lumps!

I am in the same league when making gravy from scratch. But I found an easy cheat by heating a can of Golden mushroom soup and thinning it with heavy cream, then add a little Marsala wine and a bit of dried thyme. My family loved it. You could also add some extra sliced mushrooms
