About this Cook
2 years learning in professional restaurants taught me I can't hack working in a restaurant. My family and friends have benefited greatly as a result.
My favorite things to cook
pigs and chickens right now. never was able to bake breads... Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles cookbook. Rick Bayless' Everyday Mexican cookbook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
simple southern italian. classic american. a little more midwestern creeping into my repertoire.
My cooking triumphs
beouf bourginion. roast chicken. BBQ pork loin. chili.
My cooking tragedies
losing my dad's aunt before she could write down her recipe for fried dough. losing my mom's dad before he could write down his recipe for sausage stuffing for turkey.

Sweet Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin
This was tasty. I used white instead of red wine--mainly because this was what I had open. I also used my cast iron grill top for the sear. I'd love to try this on the grill. My hubby loved this--porky goodness is always a hit in our house. I did use some extra white wine to keep the glaze liquid during roasting.

Low Fat Apple Bran Muffins
I eat these for breakfast, my husband just doesn't stop eating them! I increased the amount of apples to 2: one chopped, one grated--even better!! And they don't need a thing more--eat as is!!
