Lemon Blueberry Custard Pie
About this Cook
I like a good red, enjoy reading fiction,cookbooks,artbooks,collecting unusual cookbooks, but I especially enjoy puttering around in the kitchen, preparing something good to eat. I love to match food with wine and then consider the dishes each morsel shall rest on. It is a dream of mine some day to have a bed and breakfast somewhere on the water where I can paint, cook and entertain.
My favorite things to cook

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese
Perhaps it's because I couldn't find American cheese and had to substitute a mozza/cheddar blend, but it had the Kraft Dinner taste to me. Too much velveta and needed a lot of salt and pepper. Sorry didn't work for me.

Sensational Steak Sandwich
Fantastic recipe. I made one slight change and that is added corn starch (mixed in cold water first) to the last 15 minutes to get a gravy over the jus. We used a panini press to grill rather than heat the ciabatta bread used. Flavour was fantastic. Used the leftovers poured onto rice for dinner the next evening. Used a very good Baco Noir as there was no Pinot Noir available but it was wonderful. Thank you.

Spicy Sweet Potato Chips
Mine were very soggy and took a lot longer than stated to cook. Maybe it's my crappy oven.
