My cooking triumphs
Finding this website has been an IMMENSE triumph! From big, fat chocolate chip cookies to the basic shortbread cookies, to easy corflake crispy chicken strips. Who knew I could cook edible food that others enjoy? It certainly didn't come naturally, but with the help of the recipes I've found here, I'm even brave enough to 'tweak' recipes I've grown accustomed to. It feels good to know I can feed people good food! :o)
My cooking tragedies
I've lost count of how many recipes I've either burnt or undercooked, but in the end it's mostly trial and error. Don't give up, trust me, the results will eventually be mouthwatering!

Busy Day Chicken
This was a really simple recipe and it's nice that you can experiment with different BBQ sauces (I also added a bit of chicken broth to keep things moist.) I cooked a whole chicken the first time and eventhough it was delicious, I didn't much enjoy having to take the meat off the bone, soo-o-o I think next time I'll do as many others suggested and cook just the chicken breasts instead. Very yummy and makes great sandwiches the next day!

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars
Wow, what a yummy & easy treat! I actually had all the ingredients on-hand (which NEVER happens!) I added cinnamon as other reviewers suggested and used rasberry 'Double fruit Reduced sugar' jam. I even added some chocolate chips on half of the pan of to see what it would taste like. Both sides were delicious!! Plan on making more today with blueberry jam. I would like to make this recipe even MORE healthy, but am not good at straying from the recipe. I fear disaster without exact mesurements!

Pretzel Turtles
Easy-peasy recipe! Great to make for a quick, last minute gift. I also took the advice of others and stacked the pretzel, rolo and pecan BEFORE popping these little beauties in the oven. The flat rolo is the perfect little 'podium' for holding things. (M&M's, peanuts or any other yummy little treats!) Squish down with a spoon once melted and throw them in the fridge or freezer to set. Easy for the beginner and the perfect treat for the pickiest little tummies! Thumbs up, ten stars, sheer perfection!
