Old Fashioned Molasses Taffy
Me and my husband John
About this Cook
I am a lifetime cook. I attended Le Cordon Bleu in Tokyo for 2 years and I have been cooking since I was 10 and I will be 51 in December 09. I am currently the Republican nominee for US Congress for the 12th Illinois Congressional district. Visit me at www.voteforteri2010.com and find out how the campaign is going!
My favorite things to cook
I cook anything, but I love to make appetizers. I love sampling other people's cooking and I write restaurant reviews.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sisters and I divide the holidays, mine is New Year's Day. It used to be Christmas Eve but was just too busy with work and I make a huge football food and dessert buffet on Jan 1st for the family!
My cooking triumphs
My BBQ sauce and liqueur cakes sell very well and I have catered many events where people loved the food. My husband is a horribly finicky eater and a diabetic on top of it so anytime I make something he enjoys, it's a personal triumph because he hates EVERYTHING!
My cooking tragedies
I haven't had a cooking tragedy lately although I go ballistic when I have a cake stick to my silicone pans that NOTHING is supposed to stick to, even when I spray them with PAM. It's enraging when you pay so much money for something that is supposed to be non-stick and it isn't!!

Easy Tuna Casserole
I made this recipe twice. The first time I made it exactly according to the recipe and it was very good but needed more tuna as tuna cans now contain only 4oz drained weight where it used to be 6oz drained weight. The second time I tweaked it with a second can of tuna and used cream of mushroom soup. I also used half the amount of pasta and added half of a large head of cooked and finely chopped cauliflower to cut down on the carb grams and a cup of frozen peas because I like peas in a tuna casserole. It was delicious both ways and NO ONE noticed that there was cauliflower in it!! I also agree with Chicagogirl about reviewing with tweaks instead of the original recipe.

Amazing Chicken
I used a whole cut up chicken with the skin on because of the dryness issue I kept reading about. I mixed a package of dry ranch dressing into 1 cup of mayo and followed the rest of the recipe but baked for an hour at 350 and it was very good. As a sidebar, you can use mayo to cook a lot of things like this, I've been doing it for years. It makes your bread crumbs stick tight and keeps food moist.
