Shostie: I guess I would want to be remembered as a guy who managed to follow simple instructions most of the time.

You can use a blender but it has to be a kick ass blender or it wont mix this. Let it sit for a few hours and mix it now and again. Something happens in that time period and it makes it taste better. Try to use all of it at once. You can freeze it for later but it will lose some of it's zing. Nothing beats this fresh.If I could include a couple suggestions, as I'm known for my pesto: leave out the sugar, add a good squeeze of lemon juice, and blend in a small shallot with the garlic.
James!: I make a great guacamole, but most likely people will remember me for killing and eating that intern from accounting. :(
CitizenTed: So many lousy tuna salad sandwiches in the world. Mine is best.Believe it or not, cheaper canned tuna (in water) works better than the dry white expensive stuff. Get a can or two. Drain them fully. Dump the drained tuna in a bowl. Mash it up with a fork. Add (to taste), sea salt, ground black pepper and paprika. Add a handful of finely diced onion and finely diced dill pickle (not sweet pickle!). Now, add a dollop of real mayonnaise. Stir. Is the salad still dry and crumbly? Add more mayo. Stir. At some point your tuna salad will become one uniform ball. You have now reached the proper amount of mayo. STOP.Get two decent slices of bread. You can toast them if you like. Either way, use good artisan bread and not that thin floppy white crap that children use for bologna sandwiches. Put a half inch of tuna salad on a slice, then top with thinly sliced tomato that has been drained of excess tomato water. Add some lettuce, again drained after washing. Top with the other slice of bread. From here, you can eat it and watch MST3K on TV.Alternatively, you can put the half inch of tuna salad on untoasted bread, add a layer of sliced cheese then fry it up in a buttered pan for a tuna melt. Add the tomato and lettuce after each side is fried golden brown. You can now watch MST3K, but tuna melts typically go better with British comedies.

wildcardjack: I've got a handful of great dishes but the one I'm remembered for is a variety of pork chop (brine sear braise) that got a picky five year old to eat it without prompting.Sigh, I made myself feel old. That little picky eater graduates high school in a few weeks./It just doesn't pay to cook for one.//Unless you're doing ghetto sous vide steak.
