About this Cook
I had my first heart attack at age 40!!! I am married to my wonderful husband, Bill. We have 2 German Shorthaired Pointers. ...we enjoy spending every available moment on our small lake in Harrison, MI. Visit our Log Cabin blog at
My favorite things to cook
Anything with LOTS of flavor.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like canning with my Mom. I even enjoy just cleaning strawberries with her at the sink.
My cooking triumphs
I cook a lot by memory of my favorite recipes. I'm one of those that says, 'you just add a bit of xxx'. Never knowing the EXACT right amount...LOL
My cooking tragedies
I totally suck at grilling. I just can't seem to get it right. Maybe I need Grilling 101 for my Weber charcoal grill.

Takeout Burritos
So good! I used the leftover chicken from Lime-Chicken-Soft-Tacos from this site. I doubled this recipe to freeze leftovers. I added a cup of frozen corn to the chicken/rice mixture. I used 2 cans of drained/seasoned black beans. I set up an assembly line, tortillas, then 1/8 cup black beans, then 1/4 cup of the rice mixture. I wrapped the ones to freeze in foil.

Kosher Salt Encrusted Prime Rib Roast
FABULOUS, I'll never make prime rib another way again! My roast was 5.08 lbs and took approx. 5 hours at 210F. Like others had suggested, I made a paste with some water to make my salt crust. The salt just breaks off in chunks after resting. I allowed my roast to rest sitting in my microwave.

Peppermint Bark
5 stars if the layers didn't separate. I should have followed the suggestions by others and not let the first layer set.
