About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite tradition is a good barbeque, brats, and beer. Great atmosphere, great food, and great people. My Dads chili. Nothing over the top, but delicious.
My cooking triumphs
Anything my sis takes a picture of and puts on her facebook.
My cooking tragedies
I'm my worst critic and I'm often too hard on myself. When a recipe seems a iffy, I'll make it at lunch for myself. So if it's bad, I'll be the only witness.

Garlic Shrimp Scampi with Angel Hair Pasta
Not very good and instructions don't allow the alcohol to cook off. Shrimp came out chewy(wasn't precooked) and the sauce was bland. I never ever wanted to write a bad review, however this time I felt the multiple reviews calling this restaurant quality are deceptive. There are much better scampi recipes on this site. My curiousity got the better of me, but I love trying other recipes even if I got a good handle on one. Pass on this one.

Blackened Tilapia with Secret Hobo Spices
Great recipe for tilapia. A perfect light lunch, yet satisfying for the low carb dieters in my family. I served the tilapia on top of baby salad greens tossed in lemon juice, instead of bread. Absolutely delicious.

Chicken Milano
Absolutely delicious and a family favorite. Be sure to add some sort of greens like spinach for some color. It really makes the dish look more appealing and irresistible.
