Dinners to remember, and desserts to die for.
My cooking tragedies
Setting off the fire alarm the first time I tried broiling baby lamb chops. It was winter and I froze the whole house trying to de-smoke the house!

Pork Tenderloin
excellent, but familiar marinade. I have a similiar for London Broil. What this marinade needs is an apple juice wash 1 hr before cooking to undo th sodium. I poured off the marinade 1 hr prior to grilling and added a cup of apple juice. It cut the salt and I used that liquid with the apple jelly for a reduction gravy (and added another splash of sherry since I poured it all off). It was terrific!

Kay's Shortbread
We opted for this recipe for "Heritage Day" for my son to proffer for England over a basic recipe provide by Grandma that had rice flour that we didn't have. It was so well-received that there wasn't a crumb left after the first hour and anyone who knew my son asked that I relay the recipe to them. This may not be the classic Eng/Scot shortbread recipe but it is the one that pleases the masses. Make it and enjoy!

Cucumber Dip II
This dip is *so* fresh and wonderful, the perfect complement to summer veggies or buttery crackers. I added some dill and celery salt but the grated cucumber is the real star of this show. [Don't forget to seed the cuke!] Even with light mayo and Neufchatel it was creamy and the consistency didn't suffer at all.
