My cooking triumphs
I have just today FINALLY made and truly succeeded in making my FIRST crust(dough) for pie, and also first blueberry pie(for my hunnies)... This made me join AllRecipes...
My cooking tragedies
My worst are burning on the BBQ and definitely the first few attempts I made at making crust(dough) for pie, I mishandled it, overworked it, you name it, everything to it... It was a complete disaster... I bawled my eyes out... I'd always been the "filler" when it came to making pies with my Grand-Mother (Nanny) and my Mom... I called my mother that day and told her my awful experience and attempts(and there were many and many messes!), she told me , "Well either you're a "filler" or a "maker"; but you really have to just be in the mood... Try it another day...You'll see." And tonight I sat and although I have not been on speaking terms with my mother recently, I thought of her as my better half and I tastes the fruits of mine (and his since he picked the blueberries)'s labor, that once again, my mother had been right... (Her being a Capricorn, I'm sure she'd appreciate the complement and aknowledgement if she knew the uses of the internet and computer!).. Thanks Mom!:) And my hunnies!

Versatile Chicken Salad

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
