About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Dessert, bread, soup and comfort food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
For years we had breakfast for dinner on Sunday nights. The kids loved it! We frequently BBQ during the summer and invite the neighbors. Impromptu parties are the best!
My cooking tragedies
One Thanksgiving every dish my mom and I made had to be rescued and revamped. We laughed so hard we cried. Luckily we did the turkey the day before because it turned out so bad we had to go to four different stores before we found a big enough fresh one to redo! Poor old turkey had gotten so dry it looked like it had hair because the meat was "curling" up in little pieces. My mom passed away a few years ago and Thanksgiving dinners have not been the same since.

Simple Garlic Shrimp
Made this last night as written and it was outstanding! The five of us all agreed this is a keeper and we will be making it many times. Thank you Chef John.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp
So, simple, quick and easy. No need for any sauce to dip in because these have plenty of flavor. I will be making these again and again.

Amaretto Divine
I've made this several times now and everyone raves how good it is. Truly an impressive cake. Easy to make too. Next time I may try it with Irish Cream and a chocolate cake.
