About this Cook
I've always been able to wing it in the kitchen to get by. Now that I am older I am enjoying cooking and have so much fun trying recipes with my boyfriend. With wine of course!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking with my children.
My cooking triumphs
The salt encrusted prime rib roast from this sight... WOW!!!! I impressed everyone at Christmas.
My cooking tragedies
At Thanksgiving I handed my boyfriend the Cumin instead of the Cinnamon for the Apple pie...! Luckily it was on top of the sugar so I got just about all of it out and it was the best apple pie ever.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp
Wow, seriously excellent recipe! I used one tablespoon basalmic and one white wine vinegar because that is what I had. I also doubled the cayenne and it had good heat but wasn't too spicy for us. NOT tomatoey at all which is what I was afraid of from another review mentioning it but I did not detect tomato at all. Can't wait to make this for company.

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy
My go to recipe for perfect toffee. Be sure to cook it on med high temp until you get that rich toffee color you want! I find that I get the crackle stage but the color is too light so I just cook it longer and it gets that deep brown, so much better!
