About this Cook
Since retiring a few years ago, my wife has relenquished the cooking duties to me. Not a problem since I love to cook and try new recipes. Only problem is that I tend to mess with them too often and too much. Sometimes they turn out fine, others not. But when they do turn out fine, I can't remember what I've done to the basic recipe that made it fine.
My favorite things to cook
Fish, dips, appetizers, vegetables
My favorite family cooking traditions
Southern stuff, particularly corn bread (no sugar please)
My cooking triumphs
A few.
My cooking tragedies

Asparagus Casserole
As usual I modified the recipe a bit since I rarely have all of the exact ingredients. However, I think these helped. Used only one 8 oz pkg of cream cheese (low fat) and used about 10 oz frozen shrimp, thawed, shelled, seasoned with salt, ground pepper, and ground red pepper, tossed with 1 tsp olive oil and refrigerated for 1 hour, then sautéed in another tsp olive oil and two cloves of chopped garlic for about 5 minutes, then mixed into the cheese mixture per the recipe. Otherwise, followed the recipe and it really turned out well. Somewhat rich but not as much as it would have been with more cream cheese of the non-low-fat variety.

Ciabatta Bread
As mentioned by an earlier review - there is no way to get two 13X14 loaves out of this mixture. Glad to see that someone has revised the recipe to read 3X14. That works. However have made this twice before and both times trying to get two 13X14 loaves ended up with one roughly 10x14 loaf which turned out just fine. The dough is sticky but with floured surface and hands and with minimal messing with to form the loaf, it does ok. The bread is delicious. Don't have a spritzer so use a paint brush to lightly brush water over the loaf a couple of times while baking. Worked fine.

Banana Pudding II
Excellent recipe. I added an extra Tbsp of cornstarch and couple of Tbsp of sugar but otherwise followed the recipe closely. Took longer than the 15 minutes to thicken in the double boiler (about 25) but turned out great.
