Dasha’s Cottage Cheese Pie

An old family recipe for a cottage cheese ‘pie’ baked in a square pan…so not really a ‘pie’ but not a square either! This recipe has a cake like bottom, cottage cheese filling & cake like top… slightly sweet but not too much sugar…baked to a golden brown. But it isn’t really a cake either!…

Canned Tuna with Curry

This is delicious! I grew up eating tuna sandwiches on white bread with some Old Dutch plain potato chips. Absolute comfort food for me. Don’t get me wrong, I still love this. And…. the tuna doesn’t have anything added to it…just Kraft Mayonnaise.. BUT….. this tuna with curry is fantastic!
