About this Cook
I grew up cooking, mostly because I loved to eat too! I learned from my mother, a tex-mex master. Both of my parents were born and raised in Texas, but moved to Washington State shortly before I was born. Even though I am a native Washingtonian, I have the food-soul of a Texan. In fact, I took my first ever trip to Texas at age 44. I instantly felt at home with the food while I was there. I have a special love for all tex-mex, southwest and traditional mexican cooking.

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon
This receipe has become a standard with our friends and family. I few times we have grilled fresh caught columbia river or snake river salmon and it is beyond just is a zen-salmon experience.
