About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Homemade soups and breads.
My cooking triumphs
Beef Bourguignon, Vichyssoise, perfecting a red meat sauce, and learning how to bake my own breads without a bread machine.
My cooking tragedies
Let's just say there was an incident involving tomato bisque, a high-powered blender, and a very small kitchen. Who knew you couldn't puree liquids a hot temps? I learned my lesson the hard way, scrubbing tomato spray off of my apartment walls for days.

Best Steak Marinade in Existence
We absolutely loved this marinade. It is easy to make, and within a few hours, steaks taste wonderful. The first time I made it, I mixed it by hand in a bowl, which was OK, but the herbs remained a little too chunky for our tastes. The next time, I blended it as directed in the original recipe, and it was perfect. I marinated New York Strips in this for about 4-5 hours, then used some of the marinade to baste while grilling. Excellent!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs
Wow!These kabobs were delicious! The marinade provided great flavor, and also made the chicken extremely tender and moist. I marinated the chicken for about 1.5 hours, meanwhile, soaking bamboo skewers in water. For the marinade, I used Hidden Valley Ranch and dried rosemary, which worked fine. The only changes I will make next time is to try fresh rosemary and CHOP it into little pieces (pieces of rosemary kept getting stuck in our teeth!), and save a little of the marinating liquid before adding the chicken to use as a basting/dipping sauce. Grilled on medium heat on a gas grill for ten minutes (lid closed), turning once. Make sure you do not forget to oil the grill grate, otherwise the kabobs will stick horribly!!!

Lemon Yogurt Muffins
Tried this recipe for the first time this morning, makes a lovely spring breakfast with some fresh coffee. I used the zest and juice of one whole lemon (instead of measuring out the recommended dose!), and it was a bit overpowering. Next time I will stick to the recipe amount!
