My cooking triumphs
Huh?? You kidding???
My cooking tragedies
Make sure not everything is the same color and everything comes out at same time-easy: Start with longest cooking dish and count backwards. And never use more than the tiniest pinch of cayenne for hubbie!

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch
Love this! No canned soup (which I abhor, e.g. hate) and totally homemade. Delicious!

Chef John's Buttermilk Fried Chicken
Great!! Made this tonight as a dry run for a Senior Luncheon I am doing this Friday in San Francisco. Wow!!! This is really good chicken and fairly easy to make (unless you don't like getting your fingers globby with Buttermilk and Breading mixture, which in that case you shouldn't cook LOL). Am serving with Syrian Green Beans from this site and Greek Salad also from this site, along with rice and gravy. Stop by Chef John -T Bookman Center if you would like. You are my Sensei!!!!

Chef John's Quiche Lorraine
Great quiche! I didn't have a deep dish pie pan so I doubled the eggs and cream/milk and proceeded. It was perfect!
