About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new dishes especially those with interesting ingredients and flavors.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a few wonderful cooks in my family. My grandmother creates perfect and wonderful pies for every holiday dinner. Recently, my mom taught me how to make basic sushi rolls. Next I hope to understand and share her bread making skills.
My cooking triumphs
A lovely New Year's Eve multi-course tapas dinner for friends.
My cooking tragedies
A gazpacho soup that tasted like cold cucumber puree.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken
The marinade and basting sauce give the chicken great flavor.

No-Noodle Zucchini Lasagna
The flavor is quite good mine was very wet. I did salt the zucchini and omitted water. Next time I might grill the zucchini first.

Beer Can Chicken
A very good recipe. I used a 6lbs bird and grilled over indirect heat for 1h 20min. The grill was on low on the bird side and high on the empty side. The result was a perfectly moist bird. Next time I will try to increase the flavor which was good but too subtle.
