My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving dinner in a new house while I hadn't quite figured out the temperamental oven.
My cooking tragedies
First quiche baked at my new residence when I hadn't yet figured out the oven. Raw inside, burnt outside. Also, a few years ago when I prepared my very first brined turkey for Thanksgiving---way too salty. My Mom cried that she couldn't eat it and made my brother (who dubbed this turkey "Turkey of the Sea") go out and buy another turkey for our dinner. Didn't eat until 8 p.m. A disaster.

Rhubarb Stir Cake
Wonderfully moist cake! I cut the recipe in half and made it in an 8 x 8 pan (baked for 50 minutes). I did add a couple of tablespoons of vegetable oil to the batter as I thought it might be too dry if I didn't. I also added a little ground cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter.

Authentic Chicken Tikka Masala
This recipe is excellent, but being afraid of putting the yogurt-marinated chicken pieces (I cut my chicken into 1" chunks instead of strips) into a 450 degree oven, I chose to sauté them in a little oil until they were no longer pink (about 10 min.) and kept them in a warming oven until I was ready to re-introduce them to the same pan with the sauce once it was done. I didn't change anything else except for marinating the chicken for about 3 hours instead of 2. I served the tikka masala with basmati rice, homemade cilantro-mint chutney and store-bought naan. I can see myself making this again and again. Thank you, A.R., for posting this recipe.

Magic Marshmallow Puffs
Excellent, easy way to make sticky buns! I will make these again, adding some chopped, cooked apple and using mini marshmallows instead of the regular ones.
