About this Cook
Now that my husband and I are retired, we have really been enjoying cooking meals together...well he does the grilling and I do the rest :-). We especially love cooking and entertaining outdoors and living in Central Florida allows us to do that all year long. We have two grills and a smoker and have tried just about everything on a grill at least once.
My favorite things to cook
I love to eat and cook just about anything, but would have to say Mexican food is my passion...nice and spicy. However, I love colorful food, with lots of fresh veggies, so anything I can get a bunch of fresh herbs and veggies in will be on my menu.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We did a lot of camping when our boys were growing up and all of us sitting around the open fire pit cooking dinner are my fondest of memories. Thanksgiving might by the popular family tradition, but I enjoy the relaxation of backyard BBQ's with the family...and you can do that more than once a year!
My cooking triumphs
I've never burnt the house down.
My cooking tragedies
I almost burnt the house down. ;-)

Grilled Rosemary Chicken Breasts
The whole family was here and all of us loved this chicken, so tender, juicy with a nice fresh summer flavoring. I used all fresh ingredients and did marinate most the day. A very simple summer grilling recipe that we will repeat again.

Mexican Chicken Quinoa Salad
Followed the recipe as written with the exception of adding the whole bell peppers. I made this up the night before, waiting to add the avocados then next day when I served it. I make with my own taco seasoning blend adapted from 'Famous Taco Seasoning Mix' on the AR website. The carrots and celery were very crunchy right after I made it and didn't seem to go with the Mexican flavor, however the next day they had softened up and the whole salad tasted much better, so letting it marinate awhile is a good idea. I ended up adding some cilantro since I had some on hand, a nice addition. This sure is a chock full of healthy stuff salad. ?

Crunchy Pineapple Smoothie
This was a great before a workout smoothie, light and refreshing with just the right natural sweetness and tartness from fresh fruit. You don't taste the green tea at all, but benefit from the extra boost of energy and not to mention health benefits green tea has. If you are looking for a filling breakfast smoothie to hold you over until lunch, I'd toss in a banana or handful of oatmeal. If you like sweet smoothies add some honey or agave nectar. I did hold off adding the whole cup of tea, and liked the consistency of the smoothie at a little less than 3/4 cup. I'm not sure why it is called crunchy, unless you add ice, mine was pretty smooth.
