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

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.

Momma' Healthy Meatloaf
Except for adding a bit more minced garlic I followed the recipe as directed. The loaf was moist and flavorful and the guys really raved about it. I'm not the biggest fan of meatloaf, but I liked the veggie addition. I do think I'd bake next time at 350° instead of 400°. Maybe it is just my oven, but seemed to cook at bit too fast and a wee bit overdone at 35 minutes, temp was 162° at the ketchup adding stage, so I couldn't bake that as long as I would've liked with the ketchup on it.

Easy and Super Delicious Black Bean Soup
This is great for a quick easy meal on a cool night when you don't really feel like cooking. It was enough to fill my big soup mug, if my husband was home, I'd double the recipe. I did use my own homemade chunky salsa and vegetable broth, chicken broth would work fine in this also. Dinner ready in twenty minutes with no fuss, doesn't get much easier.
