About this Cook
I'm a single guy and I live in Iowa, where I was born and raised. I've always liked to cook and bake. In fact, if I had to do it all over again I would probably work in a kitchen or bakery. I just wish those jobs paid a little better. ;)
My favorite things to cook
I prefer to bake. Nothing is quite as satisfying as enjoying bread or pastries you've made from scratch. I try to do it all though. I like to make foods from all over the world. Trying something new does not seem like such a gamble if you prepared it yourself first.

One-Dish Rockfish
I was pretty faithful to the original recipe. However, I did cut the broth amount in half and substituted fresh dill with dried. Also my fillets were fairly thick and were about 8 ounces each, so that changed the cooking time. I really like the ingredients and the ease to which this dish went together. My biggest complaint was that it was somewhat bland. There was a lot of liquid in the bottom of the dish even though I reduced the amount of broth I used, but I don't see that as a big problem. When you lift the fillets and vegetables out of the dish to serve, the liquid stays behind. It was a good dish. I will make this again, but I will use much more seasoning and I may eliminate the broth entirely. Thanks!

Tuna Noodle Casserole II
Very tasty and easy. Used 1/2c salsa instead of 1/3c onion. Also used colby instead of american cheese. I will make it again.

Banana Smoothie I
Excellent. Also, the raw egg and the banana make this a good foundation for a power drink after a morning workout. Don't skip the pinch of cinnamon!
