About this Cook
Retired Marine/Active College Student that is enjoying the challenge that comes with each meal I select. Wife says that my confidence in the kitchen is showing more and more through the dishes I am cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Currently learning how to create twists off of already existing recipes here on If it has fruit, chicken, fish or veggies, I am running with it. Not to mention the enjoyment of a little sweat on my forehead while eatting the dish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Starting my own!
My cooking triumphs
Nova Scotia Blueberry Cream Cake and the Grilled Chicken with Spicy Strawberry Salsa
My cooking tragedies
Relearning how to use real appliances like stoves and ovens. So far so good, no burned meals yet. I admit though, how I loved grilled meat and veggies on my bbq. My kitchen now, stay out when I am cooking! LOL

Janet's Famous Banana Nut Bread
Easy to follow instruction. I chose to use my oven to bake it. Doubling the recipe netted me two loaves of bread and a dozen muffins. Very delicious!

Cilantro-Lime Rice
Made this rice dish alongside the "Chicken Breasts with Lime Sauce" recipe from here. Turned out fantastic. Since the chicken recipe called for lime juice and having to cut that recipe's ingredients helped me with a half of a lime left over for this recipe. Instead of using a chicken bullion, I used a "Not Chick'n" bullion cubes instead. Bottom line, fantastic dish that is going in my recipe box for future use. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Chicken Breasts with Lime Sauce
Great dish. Used coconut oil instead of olive oil as well as cutting the quantity of butter and lime in half due to only making dinner for two rather than going all out with six servings. I liked the taste though the chicken could have been left on for longer. I filleted the chicken breast and still took a 7 minutes per side to get the chicken done on medium heat. Increasing the heat would only burn the outside breadcrumb mixture faster. Extra couple minutes seemed to do the job. Served this dish with green beans and a lime/cilantro brown rice recipe from here. Used half the lime on the chicken and the other half on the rice. The whole meal came out fantastic. Thanks for sharing the recipe. It is going in my box for future use.
