About this Cook
I love music-mostly country and rock, but sometimes contemporary and classical too. I play acoustic guitar and sing and I'm a clogger. I've been part of a 5-couple wine tasting group for nearly 20 years and I love spectator sports, particularly baseball and football.
My favorite things to cook
I generally do stir-fries, assorted pasta dishes and I'm really into all ethnic foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Really don't have any traditions, other than corned beef and cabbage every St. Patty's Day. Guess I started that almost 40 years ago when I was a counselor/teacher in an Irish Catholic School in Syracuse, NY---St. Patrick's!
My cooking triumphs
Cooked my stir-fried orange pork on Seattle PBS channel and I've had a number of my original recipes published. Even won a recipe contest conducted by St. Supery Winery in the Napa Valley.
My cooking tragedies
I'm afraid they're all concealed in my sub-conscious, never to resurface, I hope!

Half Time Hoisin Chicken Wings
Took these wings to a Superbowl party on 2/2/14 to watch our Seahawks kick the Broncos' butts! Everyone loved the wings. I ran out of my chile/garlic sauce, so squirted in some Siracha. Could have used more, as the wings weren't spicy enough for me. But they sure are tasty. Also rather than laying the wings on the pan and then brushing them with sauce, I threw them all in a large bowl with the sauce and just bathed them in it. Knocked off the extra and laid them individually and already sauced on the pan. Yum!!

Kale Soup
Very tasty, but I modified it a little. I used one can red kidney beans and one can cannelini (white kidney beans). I also had thick boneless pork chops in the freezer that I needed to use, so I cut two of them into small chunks and used them instead of bone-in chops. Finally, I replaced the Pimenta Moida with two whole jalapenos that I cut long slits in to release their heat. When left whole, they're easier to remove after they've done their job.

Chicken Pot Pie
I really love this recipe! I added half a chopped onion and one large chopped sweet red pepper to the peas, potatoes and carrots for vegetables. And because I have yet to find a can or jar of commercial gravy that really tastes good, I used 16 oz. of gravy that I bought at our local KFC. It came out delicious!!
