About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 18 (late forties now) my boyfriend and I really liked breaded, deep-fried mozzarella cheese sticks. I thought, "how hard can these things be to make?" Mind you, I had rarely cooked at this point in my life.....grilled cheese, french toast and scrambled eggs was about the extent of my cooking experience. Anyway, I whipped up some breading (I wasn't following any receipe....still kind of cook off-the-cuff sometimes) dropped the breaded sticks in some hot, hot oil and presto......black logs emitting a thick dense smoke flooded my apartment. It looked like some kind of 4th of July firework. The oil was probably about tens times hotter than what it should have been. I tossed the whole mess out into the cold snow and later threw the blackened pot away.

Glasser's Greek Marlin
Not only was this delicious, but it is fast! We felt like we were eating out at a nice restaurant in the middle of the week. I served it over a blend of wild rices and the sauce really complimented the rice. The only thing I would do differently next time is to try to cut the butter....It was delicious as is but not really very heart friendly. But there will definitely be a next time.

Excellent! A unique blend of flavors....I didn't change a thing. Again, my husband raved about this dish.
