I decided to cook my honey a nice Valentine's Day dinner.  I'm not nuts about salmon (got burned out when I lived in the Pacific Northwest) but my husband is a definite fan so I was looking for a salmon recipe that I might like as well.  I found an easy recipe for Sweet and Spicy Salmon.  You mix some cayenne with maple syrup and baste the fillets while broiling.   My husband was delighted with dinner and asked what the recipe was called.  I replied "sweet and spicy salmon."  He smiled and said "I know why you made that recipe."  When I asked why he replied "because it's sweet and spicy, just like our lovin'!"  I sure love that man!

About Me
I am a retired chef and restaurant owner. I love food and all things related to it. I am also an avid Texas Holdem poker player. I am married with an awesome husband and two grown happily married children and one grandson. I live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas in a very small town. We live on 10 acres and have three different gardens with varying levels of success that my beautiful daughter-in-law is in charge of with my help. I believe in cooking from scratch and am glad that I now have the time to do it.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make soups, baked goods, and delicious entrees. I make all of our breads and pastries from scratch. Eggs are my friend and I used to be a breakfast cook for years. Many chefs hate cooking eggs and that was true of the chefs I hired so I became the breakfast chef at my busy little restaurant.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We like to make tamales a couple of times a year for Cinco de Mayo and Christmas Eve even though we are gringos. We don't let that fact stop us! Of course we need black-eyed peas for good luck at New Years. Thanksgiving without our jalapeno cornbread stuffing would be family sacrilege.
My cooking triumphs
One of my favorite meals I have cooked was Thanksgiving dinner for 80 seniors. I wanted to bring them holiday memories through the tastes and smells of my holiday menu. When I saw some of them getting teary about the meal I knew I had succeeded.
My cooking tragedies
Any tragedies I have had have gone straight into the trash and out of my mind. No sense dwelling on negatives.
