Yummiest Cheescake
Chicken Junk (Divan)
About this Cook
I'm always trying to perfect my cooking, not that I'm anything really special at cooking. So I joined this site to help me with that. I always look for the recipes with the highest ratings, which is probably why everything that I have rated has high ratings. I start with what others say is the best. I haven't been too disapointed.
My cooking triumphs
I made eggs benedict recently for the first time and unbelievealby they came out just about perfect! Used a recipe from this site. Wondering what wasn't quite so perfect about them. Ok I'll tell, I left the muffins under the broiler about 15 seconds too long. Slightly burned them. Proud of myself for trying, now for a Cheese Souffle....did I spell that correctly?
My cooking tragedies
Have prided myself on my chocolate chip cookies for years. But once...just once. I served them at a picnic and wondered why they weren't disappearing like usual. I hadn't tasted them you see, it was one of those days with lots to get done in preparation for a party, and I was too busy or worring about my diet. When I finaly tasted them....I'd left out the SALT! Made a world of difference believe me.

Juicy Roasted Chicken
This is the fourth time I've made this recipe, guess I should rate it. Love it.

Hard Times Creamed Tuna
Our stories sound much alike except my dad passed away and times were tough with just mom also in the 70's. She would make this, but she always added a can of peas. I liked it as a kid and then I made it for my kids, now it's just hubby and me at home and I still make it now and again. It's quick and cheap. I looked your recipe up today to see if I others added something special to make it better. When I read your recipe I though no need, but I did add half a chopped onion.
