About this Cook
I'm married and have three grown married children with kids of their own. I Lived in California for almost 25 yrs. I live in Florida now and spend most of the summer in the Bahamas. I love the water, swimming, scuba diving, kayaking, fishing, boating, power walking, and trying new recipes. Seafood is my favorite food and to be able to hunt lobster, conch, and fish then serve these fresh makes a rewarding meal.
My favorite things to cook
Seafood, Italian, Caribbean (Bahama Meals), chicken, Pork, healthy meals
My favorite family cooking traditions
Love the holiday cooking (Thanksgiving & Christmas)

Carrot Cake
I make a bunny cake every Easter ( a tradition in the family) Thought I would make a carrot cake from scratch this year and came across this recipe. This will be a keeper!! I followed the recipe and only changed the walnut ingredient to pecans ( I had a big bag in the freezer) The cake turned out moist and the frosting was perfect and easy to work with. Next time I make this cake I might add a little more spice, with this being said the cake is perfect as is with the 2 tsp of cinnamon if you like a lightly spiced cake. I like the chunky texture of the nuts, coconut, and pineapple. I am adding this to my recipe box now. Thank you Marc for the yummy recipe! By the way, this recipe makes two perfect 9 inch round cakes. I only needed one for my bunny and froze the other one, with the left over frosting. Can't wait to see how it taste after freezing.

Creamy Rice Pudding
If you like rice pudding you will love this recipe. I made it a few day's ago and did not change a thing. I made it again tonight and only used half the raisins called for and added about 1 tsp. in the rice pudding while it was cooking then sprinkled some on the top after I poured it into a dish. Great recipe for left over rice. All the ingredients I had on hand.....how easy is that!!!!

Dave's Low Country Boil
I have been looking for a seafood boil recipe and found it. This is a good one and I will be making this again. The only changes were that I used Spiny lobster tails (I catch them myself, lucky me) instead of crab and throw in a bag of seafood seasoning along with the Old Bay Seasoning as recommended (cuts down on the mess and adds more flavor) The seafood bags can be found at your local market next to the Old Bay Seasoning. The reviewers suggested a lemon sliced in half, squeeze in the pot, then add the lemon to the pot. I did this also. Great recipe and easy! Thank you! :)
