About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Baked Beans, Beanless Chili, Prime Rib, Cabbage Rolls, Crab & Shrimp, Spiced seared meats, bisque, and duck.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom taught me Cabbage Rolls, Spaghetti, and Chili so those are my 'go to' recipes that I fall back on.
My cooking triumphs
The toughest challenge was my attempt at Dim Sum! - BBQ Pork Steamed Buns and Walnut Glazed Shrimp. For a first attempt, it was very tasty! Another would be a 5lb Garlic Prime Rib that I made. I was so nervous at roasting a $40 piece of meat that I would ruin it, but it turned out PERFECT. I've made it several times since then and still a winner.
My cooking tragedies
Followed a Hot and Sour soup recipe on here once, it smelled and tasted so bad. It filled up the whole house with a rancid smell that took hours to get rid of. My fiancee and I still laugh about it. Still seeking a good recipe.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies III
These are okay. Not the best Macadamia Nut Cookies I've had, but I'd make them again and they are tasty. The family likes them.

Spicy Chili French Fries
Great recipe. I like very crispy fries so I took the advice of some of the people who posted and deep fried the french fries about 10-12 minutes then sprinkled on the spicy powder mixture right after pulling out of the fryer. Thanks for this great idea!

Plum Glazed Pork Ribs
These were amazing. The chili sauce I used was not super spicy so these were mild. I might find or add more spice next time for my taste but they were perfect for my boyfriend. We made a batch of pork ribs half with this marinade and half with another marinade (Honey Garlic also found here on allrecipes) and both were very flavorful. We cooked them all on the BBQ.
