About this Cook
I'm an officer in the Air Force and I love to cook. I have been visiting thi site for a while and just recently decided to become a member of the site in order to use the recipe exchange. I hope soon to start putting up some of my recipes so that people can try them out and I can see what others think of my recipes. Well, most of them are recipes I stole from my mom, and who knows where moms get their recipes, right?
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about anything. I am always interested in trying something new. I keep the recipes i like and throw away the ones I don't like, it's been about 6 months since I have gone back to the recipes I have otherwise recently made, except for special occassions.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up on casseroles, and I must say as a single guy I understand, it is so easy to make something on the weekend and live off leftovers all week, not to mention it's very cheap also.
My cooking triumphs
I have made chocolate chip cookies, turtle cake, and dumplings that have gone off like a craze here in my office. Next week I am entering a chili into a chili cook off although it's a little warm for chili now, but we will see. Now everyone in the building knows when they hear my name that I make some awesome dumplings. (made them for a pot luck thanksgiving dinner)
My cooking tragedies
Umm, one time I was making hard boiled eggs, and i forgot about them, I burnt the entire egg and it smelled terrible!! I can make some complicated things very well, but somehow I mess up on the simple stuff. I'm such a freak.

Rosemary Lemon Grilled Chicken
This was excellent. I modified it a little bit since I don't have a food processor and didn't want to get my blender dirty. I just put the lemon juice, garlic powder, and rosemary in the ziploc bag that I had the chicken it (thawing out). I skipped the butter, used garlic power instead of minced garlic, I also skipped out on the lemon zest. I had planned on making it outside but it turned on rainy and cold I cooked it on the george foreman grill, it was great and I plan on making it again this week sometime. Unfortunately not tonight since I won't have time to let it soak in the juice.

Parmesan Puffs
I made this experimentally one time. My fiancee loves them now and anytime I mess up I can just make a batch (or 2.. or 5) and it gets me out of the dog house in no time.

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
