My cooking triumphs
I make a beautiful pine-apple upside down cake, baking it in a #8 shallow cast-iron skillet just like my great-grandmother did!
My cooking tragedies
I once tried a greek dish that called for feta, or any other "crumbly cheese". I used some well-aged blue cheese and the resulting dish was no noxious that the dog wouldn't even eat it! ( we ordered a pizza that night )

Ground Beef Stroganoff
I thought this was pretty tasty. I read and followed some of the reviewer suggestions, adding a can of cream of mushroom soup, some sqirts of worchestershire sauce,omitted the mayo, and my own touch, 4 oz. of goat cheese. It was yummy!!

Aloha Chicken
Terrific recipe, Amy! I reduced the garlic salt in the marinade, and doubled the sauce recipe as others suggested. I made another couple of modifications to use things that I had on hand. I used a 29 oz. can of sliced peaches instead of the pineapple. ( sorry Amy, a great recipe like this always inspires me to adlib, and I didn't have pineapple! ) I reseved the peach syrup, as others had said that their sauce was too runny. I also chucked in the last 2 ozs. of a jar of mango / pineapple salsa, and a dab of cranberry & fig preserves. When you have dabs of jelly lurking in the fridge, this is a great type recipe to use them up! One other tweak that I did was to add a couple of dashes of worcestershire and a couple of generous squirts of hot chili sauce, as we love things sweet AND spicy. You can usually find hot chili sauce in the chinese food section of your grocery store. It's a very flavorful sauce that isn't real hot unless you use too much! Served this over a bed of white rice and, oh mama, dat's tasty!
