Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)
Ken, with 40+ yrs of cooking and many first time failed attempts, this 'first' a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y worked for me . I halved the amount for 4 eggs, allowed them to come to room temp. Had one egg(slightly) crack, though did not result with egg whites floating about. Timed them at 15 minutes, shells easily came off, cooked through and no ring bling. The next time I can't sleep, kitchen and fame, here I come. lol Thx!

Traditional Pork Posole
I used this recipe and combined the efforts of similar recipes to extract the steps I wanted to try. Made red chili sauce with a variety of dried peppers. Baked the pork roast using the cook's note and applied a garlic paste to cover the pork roast. While simmering, slipped in some thin sliced carrots that added even more flavor. My first attempt was a success thanks to all the great recipes and suggestions. Traditional condiments are a plus with this dish, fresh is best. I even made the pickled red onions, so glad I did.

Tuna Pizza
This idea was something I was considering to try. Just made some tortillas and will use those in place of the crust. After reading through the reviews, I am going to make it with some of the suggestions given. Will try this with a pizza crust for my grandson, he loves to try new things and help with cooking. Also considering as a cool summer evening treat, suggesting the pre-baked crust be used in place of sliced bread topped with tuna salad. Thanks for posting this recipe!
