About this Cook
I travel over 100,000 domestic air miles a year. I don't have a lot of time to cook, but I love it. I look for things that are simple yet tasty. Allrecipes helps me achieve that goal (and so does my wife, Naples34102). It's gotta be good and the picture inviting or I'm not going to devote the little time I have to a recipe unless I believe it will knock my socks off.
My favorite things to cook
Grilled meat and vegetables (or what The Boss tells me is that evening's contribution to dinner)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Friday or Saturday night cooking with a martini and my lovely wife.
My cooking triumphs
Grilled steak, tapas, Chicken Chasseur and anything barbecued.
My cooking tragedies
Blue marlin, blue marlin, blue marlin...

Spicy Bacon-Wrapped Scallops
It would be dangerous to use the amount of Cajun seasoning as directed as it would dominate the taste of the sweet, delicately flavored scallops. I used only a light dusting which gave them just the right amount of spice.

Easy Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms
I've made these for years but I thought I'd try something different. The onions, garlic and bread crumbs intrigued me as an alternative to what I usually do. I thought cooking the sausage ahead of time and then adding bread crumbs would make these dry so I took a pass on cooking the sausage in advance. In spite of that they still turned out dry.

Easy Broiled Lobster Tails
Four stars rather than five, because I believe seasoning with the boldly flavored lemon pepper would overwhelm the wonderful, sweet taste of the lobster. A little butter, which I used instead of olive oil, is all you need. Otherwise, the directions for perfectly broiled tails are right on.
