Day at Bush Gardens
About this Cook
I am a transplant from Ft. Lauderdale FL to Tampa in 1999. I have a wonderful man in my life who enjoys cooking as well. I am semi-retired and going back to school this year to study Behavioral Health and hope to land a full time or part-time job.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy watching the Cooking Network and Fox News; and enjoy new dishes from Rachael Ray and the Barefoot Contessa. Each weekend I try a new main dish and dessert.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey at Thanksgiving...this year I want to try a Honey Glazed Smoked Turkey instead of the traditional baked turkey.
My cooking triumphs
I made a cheesecake wedding cake for my best friend as a wedding gift. It served 50 people and was decorated with buttercream frosting and fresh orchids (another of her friends offered the orchids as a wedding gift). It was both beautiful and delicious.
My cooking tragedies
My latest tragedy was a chiffon pie that fell and Mexican rice that I attempted to make with brown rice. The end result was embarrassing as we took this to a Cooking Club Mexican themed party.

Eggplant Mixed Grill
Had some eggplant I needed to use so thought I would try this! Glad I did...had a girlfriend for dinner who loved it/she is a veggie lover... and gave her a copy of the recipe...next time I plan to make it with the suggested veggies minus mushrooms! Thanks for a terrific recipe...I will surely make this dish often!

Wine Fondue
This was a terrific fondue. Used electric fondue dish so the wine sauce (which was delic) evaporated quickly so I added beef and chicken stock to continue the fun (no other changes)...delic and good conversational dinner... used beef fondue with onion-horseradish sauce from Beef fondue with Sauces from this site...this is definitely a keeper!
