About this Cook
Disabled Navy vet working as an IT engineer in Northern VA. I love to experiment with cooking and develop my own recipes. I sing and play keyboards, and just enjoy life with my wife (of 28 years), a genuine, real-deal Scottish lassie from Arbroath (East Coast of Scotland).
My favorite things to cook
Tex-Mex and Southwestern, Asian/Chinese, and Italian
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad's BBQ spareribs, my grandma's home made sweet pickles (to die for) and her Chicken Paprika. My other grandma was a professional baker and everything she made was incredible, like big, soft pecan sticky buns served warm with butter. A food orgasm, if there is such a thing.
My cooking triumphs
Personally developed pizza recipe was introduced at the enlisted club at a base I was stationed at in Scotland. Food sales increased by 75% the first month it was on the menu. I love Chevy's Mequite Grilled Chicken Quesadillas, so I experimented and came up with my own recipe. First time I served them to guests, I was told I should open a Mexican restaurant.
My cooking tragedies
I've had a few things come out bad, but nothing really major. At least nobody has ever told me to my face!

Teriyaki Sauce and Marinade
OMG!!!!! There's a popular thick bottled teriyaki basting sauce that's been my favorite for years. Not any more! I used this recipe the other evening for my Grilled Teriyaki Chicken and Stir Fry Vegetables. I added green onion to the seasonings and put the cooked sauce mixture in a blender. I set aside some to add to the veggie stir fry and my pan fried noodles. I thickened the rest with cornstarch and basted my marinated chicken breasts while they were on the grill. I experimented with the marinade, using minced ginger, onion and garlic, soy sauce, rice vinegar, a drop or two of sesame oil, a touch of mirin and a bit of peanut oil. It was without question the most sensational dish I have ever prepared! I love Japanese and Asian cuisine, and I have to say, this tasted better than anything I've ever ordered from a restaurant or take-out joint. It just tasted so authentic. Thank you so much for posting this recipe! If anybody wants to know my vegetable stir fry mix, let me know and I'll post it. Scott
