The snow is melting, the birds are returning and you can step out without being bundled up.   The sun is so warm and intense.   We've had 3 or 4 days about 50 now, which really made the snow vanish and the water run.   I love spring.Some of the water has to find it's way into my basement.  … MORE

About this Cook
Dad of two great girls and husband to one equally great lady.
My favorite things to cook
I like Italian and Mexican. I enjoy a challenge and tend to move on once I have it mastered.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom taught all of us boys (and girls) to cook. It's always nice when Mom has us over and I get to carve the meat for her.
My cooking triumphs
My favorite triumphs are cooking twice for my daughters and their friends proms. Both years I served about 15 and stuck with my own Italian recipes. The kids all loved the meals. Now the girls (in college) and their friends try to make a point to come out for my cooking, which usually turns out! I love having them here and the cooking helps! Also once a year I have to make pies for a local fundraiser and last year, the old ladies thought I had bought the cheesecake with the pretty swirls and passed it off as my own. Nope. Sorry ladies!
My cooking tragedies
Yep, I've left the giblets in the bird once. I also believed the pop-up thermometer one time when I shouldn't have. Yea, and I did a rotisserie chicken in 7 minutes flat. Forgot to turn the grill down from preheating. That wasn't pretty.

Pot Roast, Vegetables, and Beer
Excellent and easy recipe. I did add in some celery and I subbed in a little ketchup for the tomato paste out of necessity. It still gave me the subtleness that the paste offers, so I was pleased with that. I did not have a dark beer, so I used just a standard light beer, which worked fine. I only had a 2 pound roast and after 2 hours, this was done perfectly. I let rest for 15 minutes and sliced up and it was fork tender and the veggies perfect. I will use this recipe again. Thanks!

Shrimp and Asparagus with a Louisiana Twist
I made this as directed and found it lacking in flavor. I tasted the distinct flavors of the veggies and shrimp, but nothing Louisiana about it. Or I should say nothing that I perceive as Louisianan, because I am an upper midwest boy. You betcha (that's thrown in for the Fargo fans). Anyways, the only change I made (after I made it as written) which made it 5 stars to me was add in some Cajun seasoning. I'm guessing I added in 1/2 or 3/4 of a teaspoon. I will probably make this again with my change. Thanks!
