About this Cook
I am a mom, business owner and a definite foodie.
My favorite things to cook
Right now I am working on grilling fruits and vegetables straight on the rack. None of this vegetable pan stuff for me! My favorite this season is a peach grilled with a vinegar/sugar/pepper sauce topped with gorgonzola.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Whole food ingredients, everything from scratch. My mother was a terrible cook, everything fried with oil, oil and more oil. Fortunately my father is an incredible cook. His disdain for restaurant food is starting to rub off on me as well, I agree, I can prepare much better food myself.
My cooking triumphs
Grilled salmon filet with fruit salsa.
My cooking tragedies
Spaghetti surprise! I read it on the back of a Bisquick box in '96 and my husband and daughter have not let me live it down since!

Cajun Spice Mix
I love this recipe. I use it to dry rub everything! We cut down the cayenne pepper to 1/8 tsp for the kids. (Can always add more!) I like to can pork when it's on sale. I'll cube it and use this dry rub and some liquid smoke and bake in a covered pan. Then I pressure can it. It comes out just like pulled pork! You can do the same thing with this recipe by putting this dry rub on cubed pork with a little liquid smoke in a slow cooker all day. Awesome faux pulled pork!

This is an excellent base recipe, exactly as it is written, for quiche. It tastes best with cream or half and half as the author suggests. I found a non-frozen quiche baked for 1 hr 15 min at a 325* oven turned out great. I have never actually frozen this recipe, I imagine it would take longer to bake if it were frozen. For my personal preference, I use a rice crust made with over cooked rice, 1 egg & a pinch of onion powder minced with a pastry blender and pressed into the pie pan. When I mix it, I omit tossing the cheese with flour making it gluten free. I like to add a pinch of white pepper to the egg mix, then I just use the cheese, meat and veggies I have on hand.

Beer Batter Waffles
I did the + 1Tbsp Baking Powder & + 1tsp salt to make my all purpose flour self rising. This recipe results in a super light waffle. When mixing, I stirred by hand and I was very careful to not over stir so they aren't tough. You can definitely smell the beer when you're cooking it, but eating it you do not taste the beer. I used a regular beer the first go around and after that cheap beer purchased for the recipe, always warm beer though, I think that helps with it being fluffy. Super yum! Edit- Try stirring in chopped ham and shredded cheese and serving with salsa, amazing!
