My cooking triumphs
Baked Alaska!
My cooking tragedies
I have invented some really awful casseroles. Fortunately, my kids like Taco Bell.

Asian Beef with Snow Peas
It calls for rice WINE, which I had a hard time finding out here in rural America. (I had to make a trip to the Big City!) However, this was excellent. I doubled the sauce, except for the brown sugar. I froze my round steak for about 15-20 minutes so I could slice it very thin. That's the key to having it turn out tender. To the leftovers today, I added mushrooms, zucchini, bean sprouts and some sliced green onion, all sauteed in toasted sesame oil.

Spaghetti and Meatballs Muffin Bites
I helped some grandchildren make these. It was a blast! We made our own meatballs and spaghetti sauce, so the taste wasn't blah. It was delicious and we will make these again. Next time we're going to try it Asian with rice noodles and other Asian flavors. As for the sticking problem, we used paper liners thoroughly sprayed with cooking spray. That added a festive spirit which the entire family enjoyed. Oh, and we made 36 meatballs which was sufficient for 12. Extra unbaked spaghetti and meatballs were available. Add a salad and some garlic toast. Nummy.

Pressure Cooker Beef Chili
I'm an Arizona lady, been making green chile all my life. This is a very good recipe, very close to what my abuelita (grandma) taught me. Just a reminder: green chilies and jalapenos are two very different products. Be careful; it is possible to burn yourself with hot peppers. I added two 7 oz. cans of Ortega brand diced green chilies to my batch. Nummy.
