About this Cook
When I was growing up it was always cook or go hungry during the summers when my parents were at work. After about a year of cooking for myself and packaging up what little leftovers might be left my parents started noticing the tasty food that was left in the fridge and would ask where it came from. It was then I took over as the primary cook at our household. When they asked me where I learned to cook like that I would show them all of the cook books my mother had on the bookshelf and told them I just looked up things that I thought would be good and made it. Now I am grown and have been cooking ever since I was little. I have a daughter now who loves to cook with me and showing the same interest in cooking. Currently she is learning about herbs spices and what they are good in. Next she wants to learn how to use the Grill. I am certain she will pick it up just as easily as I did at her age.
My favorite things to cook
Honestly I love to cook anything and everything but I hate to cook for myself. I always love to cook things with a lot of flair and are especially flavorful. A lot of my friends ask me when the next time I am cooking is simply because they know I hate to cook just for myself and when I cook for my friends I go all out. I find extra joy in cooking basked good like cakes, cookie and breads. There is nothing like the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven. Grilling is my total passion! There is something about the added smokey flavor or food cooked over an open wood fire that you just cant get from gas or cooking it in an oven.

Bacon and Date Appetizer
We have always made these for parties at our house. They are usually the first thing to disappear.

The Best Seafood Stuffed Mushrooms
These were absolutely awesome. If you can find them definitely go for larger mushrooms so you can stuff more into them.
