About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was about 8-9 years old. My mother signed me up for a Gourmet for Kids cooking class in Wooster, Ohio when I was about 10 and I've been cooking and baking ever since.
My favorite things to cook
I love to BBQ, Smoke and figure out new ways to cook meat. I like to experiment on my own with flavors and try new recipes. I also love to bake, although I don't bake a much due to my control issues over sweets.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and Grandmother's stuffing..very simple and perfect. Haystacks, Sloppy Joes...simple, comfort food is the way I cook. My favorite audience are my kids.
My cooking triumphs
Apple Pie, Perfect Steak, Smoked Pork Butt
My cooking tragedies
Beef Brisket in the smoker...tasted like LEATHER...ugh.

Green Salsa
This was fabulous! It was gone in just a couple of hours when we served it for St. Patty's Day. I have also added it to guacamole which was a big hit too.

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.

You won't believe all the things you can do with cauliflower. It's a great low-carb option.
