About this Cook
My cooking interests changed to mostly Italian and Mexican dishes. Grilling and slow-cooking are fun ways to enjoy the flavors I dish up for my kids. When I am not around a heat source cooking up something tastie, I hope I'm on the golf course.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking anything I can add cumin,avacado, and/or cheese.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pizzas after midnight from scratch with my brother, or Saturday pasta making day with the family.
My cooking triumphs
Way back in the day (circa 1987), I cooked a four-course dinner for my husband, using a broken oven/stove and my microwave; in our kitchen that was smaller than most "1/4 baths" in peoples homes.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot cook rice to save my soul. Not in a pot, not in a pan, not in a steamer, not anyway. Thank you Uncle Ben's 90 second microwave rice! Without you, my dishes would be incomplete.

World's Best Potato Salad
I just cannot make this recipe turn out. I think the measurements are off and maybe one should use HELLMAN's as the mayo not Kraft. It just turns out runny and vinegary.

Chef John's Perfect Prime Rib
Disable your smoke detectors if you prepare your roast this way! My oven cooled down much faster than two hours I feel because we had to open the windows. So, my roast was rare. I should have stuck to my instincts in preparing this cut of beef, but thought I'd give the method a try. I also did not use butter as the cut is fatty enough, nor the seasoning suggested. I rubbed crushed garlic, kosher salt, and peppercorns over the top & sides and made the 'Chef John' AuJus which worked very well and even left a great flavor on the palete of my fastidious 7yr old Asperger son - AFTER I finished cooking the meat, of course!

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
