About this Cook
It is challenging to cook for one person ..so doesnt always make cooking enjoyable ...but I love food and love to eat ...so I do it anyway ...and just end up cooking for two and eating leftovers!

My cooking triumphs
cant think of any off hand
My cooking tragedies

Acorn Squash
Agree with other reviewers ..been making this for years. Add a little water to bottom of pan to keep moist and stop skin from burning...score the squash and add the butter, brown sugar right from the start..keep both sides face up in the pan....cook 45-60 min. I also add nutmeg ..you could add cinnamon if you prefer that taste instead ..and I love the idea of adding walnuts ...mmmm!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken
I breaded the chicken as suggested ..and feel that is a great idea ..the sauce sticks to the chicken better. I took the chicken out ..and added some veggies to my wok..whatever I had on hand ..peppers etc. Returned the chicken, added cashews ...and the sauce ..which I doubled. I used siracha for my hot sauce. The sauce was a wee bit sweet...a wee bit sticky..and had a wee bite to it. It thickened with no trouble. My only criticism ...too much soy sauce.. I would reduce that next time. I will look over other reviews and see what others did next time ..and follow this advice. It was a wee bit overpowering...and definitely use low sodium soy sauce!!

Best Tuna Casserole
I only rated this 4 stars..since like others I made some slight modifications to the original. But it was delicious and so simple to make!! I added some sour cream to alleviate the dryness others spoke of..and cooked it at a lower temperature for about 20 minutes and it came out creamy and far from dry. I omitted the mushrooms but loved the suggestion to add some cayenne pepper ...what a great little kick it added! I always use sharp/old cheddar cheese as I love the stronger flavour..and i added it all into the main ingredients ..not in the topping I used a Ritz cracker topping .. but that was what i had on hand ..and it was equally yummy..although now i want to try some of the other suggestions. Overall, it would definitely make it again..and perhaps this time I will mix things up and try some new ideas.
