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. ;-)

Quick Pickled Jalapeno Rings
My peppers are very hot this year, so I added one more tablespoon of sugar to tone the heat down. I also added in a bit more garlic. My peppers must be smaller, 14 filled a pint jar. I waited two weeks before reviewing the taste and even had some of the family over to help out with the taste testing. They're still pretty hot, so the sugar didn't tone the heat as much, they didn't taste real sweet either, so that was good. They sure are better than store bought and all agreed this is five stars, for ease, taste and freshness. Must have been good, they ate almost half the jar.

Mushroom Chicken Piccata
I had two nice size chicken breast, so I butterflied them to make four. Added fresh minced garlic to the butter for extra flavor. Also added ground pepper and herbs de provence to the flour mixture, along with the paprika and salt. After reading the reviews I kept my sauce at the recipe's 6 servings, using homemade chicken broth and fresh lemon juice. Cooked my breast in garlic butter first for 3 minutes each side, then removed and kept warm on a plate while I cooked the mushroom mixture. I did toss in a few spoonfuls of capers too, why not? This was a wonderfully flavored chicken dish and not too hard to prepare. I would suggest if you do have six breast to increase the sauce, especially if you're serving over pasta or rice.

Shrimp Pasta with Tomato Basil Sauce
I added in some black olives also, put the mushrooms in with the tomatoes and tossed the olives in with the shrimp at the end, more garlic too since we love it. It didn't need any cheese, we enjoyed the simplicity of the recipe, really great with fresh garden tomatoes and basil.
