About this Cook
My cooking triumphs
A totally complete Thanksgiving dinner with only recipes used for the desserts.
My cooking tragedies
Using cilantro in meatloaf when I was just introduced to cilantro & thought no amount was too much until even the dog wouldn't eat it.

Spicy Tuna Fish Cakes
We had some fresh tuna baked seasoned with Mrs. Dash, not canned. We did not care for the mashed potatoes in the recipe. It gave it a mushy soft texture on the inside. I unintentionally failed to add the cayenne pepper. I am going to try recycle the leftovers, add an egg, crushed crackers, jalapenos, & grated cheese & re-fry in the olive oil.

Key Lime Pie VI
Husband's favorite dessert, so I decided to make one totally from scratch for his birthday vs. buying one like usual, but wanted fewer calories than other recipes. I didn't have the greatest luck with this recipe. Besides being extremely labor intensive, used suggestion of doubling lime juice, attempting to hand squeeze all, but ended up filling the rest with store bought juice. Getting a T. of lime zest took a long time. Pudding didn't set over night, so had to spoon out of the shell, cooked longer adding 1/4 c. sugar because it was so tart, a little corn starch & water to thicken, fixed the setting problem, but it and the overly sweet meringue made it too rich for my preference. If I were to make again, I'd follow directions to a T, but would probably leave out the zest, cook the pudding longer the first time & cut the sugar for the meringue in half.

Cherry Cheesecake Pie
I've used this one for years. In my opinion, no other recipe or even Cheesecake Factory, can top this one! Easy & delicious!
