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

Beef Enchiladas with Spicy Red Sauce
Very good sauce that makes the recipe top notch, I used Ancho chili powder, nice flavoring. My salsa and chicken broth were homemade, and I used my Immersion blender in the pan to make a nice smooth texture since my salsa was pretty chunky. I skipped the warming tortillas in foil stage, just used them straight out of the package. I made my own Mexican blend of cheese with Colby Jack, and Kraft jalapeno cheddar. I also added one can of black beans to the meat mixture to make fuller enchiladas, and the remainder of my ck broth worked fine in place of beef broth.

Golden Potato Soup
I cooked my onions, celery and garlic in a tablespoon of butter till softened and smelling really good before adding the potatoes in, then used chicken broth to boil instead of plain water. I used three Russet potatoes and needed about two cups of broth to cover the potatoes completely. This wasn't any harder than adding it all together and boiling at once, but I'm sure gives it much deeper flavoring. I didn't have American processed cheese, but a mix of Colby/Cheddar worked out just fine. This was a great way to use up leftover ham from Thanksgiving, and really easy. We really loved it.

Easy Chicken Fajita Soup
This was very good and very easy to make on a busy night, I used my own chicken stock and fajita spice mix. My husband is still raving about it and said he gets dibs on the leftovers for lunch today. I almost forgot I did add in a jalapeno from the garden.
