About this Cook
I have two kitty cats, Leroy and Snoop, and a tank of African Cichlids. I consider time cooking "me time." (I don't cook well with others.) And I'm a lousy baker, which doesn't bother me since I don't have a sweet tooth anyway.
My favorite things to cook
Beer can chicken with grilled corn on the cob. Cold salads with fresh veggies. Cheesy twice baked potatoes...Mac n cheese...anything with cheese!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Dad taught me you can grill pretty much everything - even breakfast. Rain or shine, I think most of our meals are prepared outdoors. Mom taught me that the stove is also a good ally. She makes a mean chicken pastry. My own tradition is to prepare a different chili every Monday night during football season. That's when the crock pot becomes my weapon of choice!
My cooking triumphs
I've been on a quest lately to discover the perfect mac n cheese recipe. I think I about got it when I blended the assortment of leftover Boar's Head cheese (Canadian cheddar, gouda, fontina...) from the fridge last week. Now if I can only remember the exact combination....
My cooking tragedies
Once I was heating a pan on the stove and neglected to notice the roach trap that had fallen in it. Needless to say, it melted and ruined the pan. (No I didn't eat it!)

Healthier Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings
I can't say they were amazing, but they gave a good base to work with. I'm sure after trying some of the other recommendations I'll be able to give it 5 stars. They were very tender though. I'm curious what hot sauce others used. We used Sriracha, which wouldn't have been my first choice, but sometimes you have to go with what the pantry says. Overall, I like that they are baked and not fried. Now I have extra calories to spend on beer.

Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings
They were alright. Takes a bit of time to zest all those lemons for so little flavor. I'd try again, but maybe add more lemon, or marinate it longer.

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Salad
I overlooked the food processor instructions and just mixed it. The flavors are awesome. And it's just nice to look at! I garnished it with a few slices of lime. Good hot or warm.
