About this Cook
I love to cook, hate to bake. People love my food but I would like to learn more about herbs and spices and how to use them to enhance dishes. Grilling is my favorite and a specialty of mine is grilled vegetables and anything on a skewer.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite meals are lasagna, grilled shrimp, kabobs, roasted variations of potatoes, and anything creamy! Just getting into Dutch oven cooking over coals.
My cooking tragedies
I left the broiler on with the oven door shut (had made a pizza and the last couple of minutes I put it on broil so the top would get done) and about 20 minutes later, I heard an explosion and the glass on my oven door shattered into thousands of pieces. A long time ago, I put a pyrex pan on top of the stove forgetting that I had just used the burner and it was still very hot...again, shattered glass all over the kitchen.

Apple Pie Muffins
Great muffins. I got 18 regular muffins out of one batch. I made them according to the recipe which I wouldn't change at all. I liked that the muffin was more plain so the apple taste really shined. The topping gave it the perfect amount of spice/flavor. This is my go to apple recipe.

Scalloped Corn
This is good. I made it just as the recipe says. I wasn't sure if the whole kernal corn was supposed to be drained or not, so I guessed and drained most of it. I did not find it too sweet like others who suggested less or no sugar. I did feel like it was missing salt and pepper though. With salt and pepper, it would be a 5 star recipe. Nice consistency, not too dry, not too wet. I will definitely make it again but add some salt and pepper.

Seafood Sandwich
Good basic recipe. Tasted like the seafood salad I buy at the supermarket. I did find it needed a bit more Old Bay than called for in the recipe. I will make this again. Would also be good on a salad instead of bread. Note: After making this several times, I found it makes a great party appetizer...just put on top of Ritz crackers and people love it.
