Allie thinks I'm invading her privacy. That's her I'm not happy look. The tuna casserole was a success (even if it looks creepy in the picture). My sister Sheila came over to try it. She thought it was good but seemed more like a pasta dish than a casserole. I forgot that I meant to add green chilis until I was in the middle of putting it together, but that can of green chilis I thought I had turned out to be nonexistent. Maybe next time I'll make a list before I go to the market. Maybe next time I'll put in jalapenos, too. Here are the casserole and the iffy Palmini recipe: And, in case you were wondering, here's a picture of my odd onion. It's creepy, too. Don't worry...I threw it away. I've already found my next cooking project. It's from The Oaks, a spa in Ojai, so it should be super healthy (at least that's what I'm telling myself), only 180 calories. It's called "Artichoke Chili Stuffed Potato." It's k

Allie looking for ghosts. Tuna Casserole...Okay, I'm procrastinating. I said I would make it today. I just have to get my courage up. How hard can it be? I got off to a bad start when I went to Ralph's and Gelson's to get the ingredients. Ralph's was out of whipping cream, so I had to go to Gelson's.

I haven't had good luck with white jeans. It seems they're a canvas for things of color...coffee, mustard, ketchup. Nothing as unobtrusive as white wine... Okay. Big sigh. I'm off to the kitchen. Chopping some onions. My mom used to be a master chopper. Her onions and tomatoes came out so uniform and tiny. I watched her a few times, but that skill is above my pay grade.

Hi. That's Allie lounging in the sun. I'm Pam. I'm an author who's decided to learn to cook. Not that I can't cook. I microwave well! I make salads! I order online... Working from home, I have a lot more time to try new things. One thing I want to master is cooking. For years, I've collected cookbooks and torn recipes out of magazines and printed recipes from the internet. I have a TON of them shouting "Me! Me!," all trying to get my attention. I'm going to start with simple dishes. I'm a lover of tuna noodle casseroles. I can see a lot of frowns out there from people who either think it's an unhealthy choice or people who think it's too easy. Mainly, I haven't had a tuna noodle casserole in a really long time and I miss it. I thought I had a recipe tucked away somewhere that I've actually used in the past...the long ago past, but when I tried to find it I had no luck. So, I've been searching for other recipe
