About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Caribbean food, particularly Jamaican and Trinidadian, and Asian cuisine, particularly Thai and Vietnamese. I would love to learn more about creative vegetarian (think Moosewood) and learn more about French cooking.
My cooking triumphs
When we were first married (17 years ago) I prepared Cuban Rice and Beans for my husband, at his request. I really didn't want to; my father-in-law was Cuban, and my husband knew what good rice and beans were! I closely followed a recipe in a Caribbean cookbook and the results were astounding. My new husband said, "These are even better than my dad's!" I haven't dared to prepared Rice & Beans since!!

Jalapeno-Blue Cheese Burgers
I cut this recipe in half, and it serves the four of us, perfectly. Each of us enjoyed a nice, fat burger.......but not a heart clogging 1/2 pounder. My family loved these. They weren't too spicy, but they had a nice flavor. Next time, I will reduce the salt. I forgot to add the Swiss cheese and the burger was still one of the best I've had in a long time. OH! I used a half and half mixture of buffalo and ground round. I recommend the mixture for a combination of flavor and a healthier alternative to ground beef.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV
Five stars, because it is easy and satisfying. It's simple and "old fashioned," and in those things lies it's great appeal. I used whole baby Yukons, and whole carrots, peeled and cut into hearty chunks. I didn't have an open bottle of Cab, so I used a Malbec. I always season meat dishes with Jane's Crazy Mixed-Up Salt. Serve with a crusty bread, a green salad and a glass of that Malbec and you have a perfect Fall meal.

Spicy Beef Curry Stew for the Slow Cooker
This is very good and something I would definatly prepare again. As recommended by other cooks, I added another large jalapeno (with seeds,) I upped the ginger by a half teaspoon and I always add extra garlic over what is called for in any recipe. In this case, I doubled the garlic. Next time, I will add a tsp of brown sugar. For some green and added nutrition, I added cooked Trader Joe's organic green beans to the hot crockpot mixture, stirred, and served over jasmine rice. YUM!
