About this Cook
We spend part of the year in Naples, FL enjoying the sun, so I feel blessed to be able to do two of my favorite loves all year; golfing & grilling. I love entertaining and planning get-togethers for friends. It's fun to come up with a theme for the evening and develop a menu around it.
My favorite things to cook
Since grilling is my favorite way to cook, I enjoy finding different marinades & sauces and interesting side dishes to keep things interesting. In the fall I enjoy spending a Sunday in the kitchen making a pot of something hearty and comforting. I don't bake much but enjoy a flour-fest in the kitchen once in a while!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Traditions have changed over the years with the "kids" and with all the juggling of family visits and big meals, I would have to say brunch is now my favorite meal to make. It makes for a relaxed morning/afternoon and no one has to rush to split their time with other family members! A full tummy and a Bloody Mary makes for a nice nap before more festivities begin!
My cooking triumphs
Any meal the family says out loud they like is a triumph in my book! Recently, I have enjoyed mastering different kinds of cheesecakes. It's an elegant and rich dessert that can be made into any imaginable flavor!!!
My cooking tragedies
I'm famous for leaving something in the oven or grill. Mashed Potatoes or grilled corn for dessert anyone?!? ;)

Cucumber Salad With Thai Sweet Chili Vinaigrette
You had me at Thai sweet chili sauce! I had a dozen small Persian cucumbers and used a mandolin. I forgot about the sesame oil but didn't seem to miss it. Loved, loved this and can't wait to serve it at summer BBQs! Thank you!

Lemon Horseradish New Potatoes
The ingredients just sound wonderful together. As others suggested, I added a lot more horseradish and roasted them in the sauce, uncovered for a nice browning. I eyeballed the amount of sauce I used for the amount of tatters I used as some said theirs were a bit dry. I didn't have a problem. I poured a bit of sauce over them when plated but I was still wishing there was more of a horseradish taste; Hubs didn't even notice it. Hmmm, would try these again but up it even more!

Roasted Beets with Feta
I love beets! Roasted them a day or so prior, peeled and kept in the fridge. I liked the dressing but I add the oil last, drizzling in with an immersion blender to emulsify. You could also do this using a whisk to get a more blended, thicker dressing. I did add a bit more oil and a bit of sugar. I cut the beets into wedges, heated the beets back up, tossed with dressing and placed in small Boston Lettuce cups. I then topped with the cheese, I prefer Goat Cheese but Hubs likes the Feta. Either way, this was good!
