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. ;-)

Pulled Pork Ya'll
My roast was only 4lbs, so I reduced the water and apple cider a bit. I shredded the pork and tasted it, tangy, spicy, sweet succulent pork. I thought it tasted pretty good even without all that BBQ sauce, so I just added Sweet Baby Ray's sauce, really just enough to moisten and let it heat up real good, another 30-40 minutes before serving. Great with mac and cheese...piggy mac as we call it.

Classic Macaroni Salad with a Twist
I wanted to cut the recipe in half for just the three of us, so I used half the amount of noodles and mayo, but still kept the rest of the ingredients the same, maybe less on the cilantro (just eyeballed that), used all the reserved juice. I also added some salt and pepper. This was an easy make ahead pasta salad with a nice refreshing flavor, would be a great summer salad, especially with fresh pineapple and grilled chicken. If I made the whole recipe I'd double the chicken and pineapple.

Yellow Rice with Vegetables
This was great tasting rice dish. The only change I made was to add the whole red bell pepper, since I like lots of veggies. I did use my homemade vegetable broth. I'm certainly going to make this one again....a keeper.
