My cooking triumphs

My cooking tragedies
Hearkening back to the "early years" still growing, quite hungry, & mom wasn't home... I made a turkey sandwich with ketchup, mayo, cheese, pickles... barf. In college, I attempted cream-puffs & made "chocolate sauce" by cooking chips in a regular sauce pan & adding H2O. This made lavarock... In more recent years the tragedies been more "forgetful" than reckless or ignorant. Pudding with sour milk, cookies without eggs, coffee without coffee in the maker (4AM folks). But... the real tragedy was tofu. I still have no idea how to cook that stuff

Cranberry Walnut Relish I
Always looking for ways to “cheat” with a microwave to save on energy costs, and this one worked! only had 6 oz cranberries, microwaved for 1 minute and 20 seconds and they did fine. Toasted the nuts in the toaster oven. Added some pineapple to bulk it up. Results: awesome. Its like a dessert. Thanks for the recipe!

Banana Prune Muffins
I have three nuggets of advice: If that box of avoided prunes in your pantry are hard as rocks- don't fret. Before adding to this recipe, cover with water in a sauce pan, bring to boil, allow to sit and plump, then drain (but save the juice- it'll be good for something). They will add up to more than 1 C after plumping, but that didn't mess up the recipe for me. I just added some extra wheat germ and flax seed and it was perfectly moist (added plus of extra nutrients). SECOND: If- like me- you didn't read the label when you bought your prunes they have pits, don't fret. Its easy. Using either a knife, or a clean thumb, slip it down along the pit and squish it out. THIRD: I know this is good as-is, :) but, being a chocolate lover, I added 1 T coco powder, and pressed in 3 chocolate chips on the top of each one. MMM. Try it!!
