About this Cook
I love to cook. I have actually looked for cooking jobs in the area I live but can not find someone willing enough to take me on. I cook for a semi-large family and love to find new recipes on the internet to try. Since I have been home and cooking, we hardly have the same thing twice in a year!
My favorite things to cook
I have so many different tastes now that there isn't anything I don't like to cook. I do have to say that I love to grill over stoves, but I do not strictly adhear to my favorite style of cooking, in fact, the grill is off more now than it use to be.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Love to cook the Thanksgiving dinner for my family, as well as Christmas. We do the traditional T-day turkey and with the help of the food network, started using the fresh herbs under the skin with a butter baste. Turns out heavenly every year. Christmas, ahh Christmas! I started a prime rib tradition in our family. I have found a way to cook it that just turns it to the best flavor and melts in your mouth. Can't wait for the season!
My cooking triumphs
Professionally, none. Personally, almost every night I cook the family just ooohs and ahhs!
My cooking tragedies
Many have happened, the worst was when I tried, without a recipe, to create a beef saute to cook in a pan that included vinegar. I put a little too much in and added nothing to cut the bitterness. It was a disaster. My wife now watches me around the vinegars...:)

Chicken Avocado Pizza
WARNING! DO NOT USE PIZZA STONE UNDER BROILER OR PREHEAT PIZZA STONE AND ADD COOL ITEMS TO IT! PIZZA STONE WILL EXPLODE LIKE MINE DID! Other than that, this recipe is wonderful. If you want a lot of flavour like other reviewers stated, you might want to find another recipe. This one is light and mild. All pizzas (we doubled) were eaten. This recipe has been added to my binder.

Elegant Pork Loin Roast
One of the best pork loin roast recipes I have eaten. This is very flavorful, but not overly spiced up as some recipes can get. The gravy turned out nice and thick. I had accidentally used 1/2 a cup of apple juice at a time, but that made more gravy in the end. Otherwise, followed this recipe to the letter and everything was eaten up. This recipe has been added to my binder.

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
