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.

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.

Kelsey's Cheesy Bacon Breasts
Very good and easy. There was no need to cook the outside of the chicken in butter. I fried the bacon until almost done and just put the raw breast meat in a cake pan and brushed with the mustard and BBQ sauce and topped with the bacon. I baked it for about 20 minutes then put the cheese over the top and baked another 15 minutes. It was perfect.

Banana Crumb Muffins
I have made this several times now just as written. I wouldn't change a thing. Each time I make them I get 12 regular size muffins out of a batch. This the only banana muffin recipe I will use because it is so good, I don't need any other.
