  1. All I can say is YUUUUUUMMMM!!! I put the fish right on top of the onions and when I flipped it they were all golden and crispy on the fish. It was also very moist and flavorful. The egg, mayo and cream mix is what really does it. I forgot to put the grated cheese on top but didn't miss it at all. Thanks Susan!


I live in the desert with my husband where we enjoy traveling, camping, amateur astronomy, and listening to short-wave broadcasts on our vintage radios. We like to eat wholesome, nutritious foods free of pesticides and preservatives; therefore, we try to purchase only organic foods. I love to cook and am discovering new ways to prepare fish and vegetables. My ancestors came from Scotland, England, and Germany and I am very much interested in learning about past and current culture and food preparations there as well. Lately, I have been developing a taste for more Indian and Asian cuisines and have enjoyed experimenting in my kitchen! I love to collect cookbooks from a variety of cuisines and have one that catered to the rationing needs of WWII. I like old movies, enjoy shopping for antiques, and love many things vintage. FAVORITE FOODS: I enjoy cooking comfort foods, pot roast and brisket, curries, and love a roast chicken. We like to go out for Asian, Italian, Indian, and Seafood. My cookbooks are a compilation of a few of my own recipes as well as those of Zaar members' whose recipes I've tried and loved or are on my "can't wait to try" list. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> MY RATING SYSTEM: If the dish is outstanding, I will rate it a 5. If I really like it and hope to make it again, I will rate it a 4. If the dish was just "ok" and I might make it again w/ adjustments, I'll rate it a 3. I will give it a 2 if it was fair and I probably won't make it again. I will give a recipe a 1 if I just didn't like it or it didn't work out. I will try to give a fair explanation of why I give a low rating. Please don't be offended as my low ratings will not be personal, but rather a true reflection of my experience w/ the recipe. Not everyone likes the same things and our tastes can be different, so please bear that in mind as well. <a href="http://www.tinycounter.com" target="_blank" title="free hit counter"><img border="0" alt="free hit counter" src="http://mycounter.tinycounter.com/index.php?user=redsandal"></a>
