Cooking on the Ship "M/V John B. Aird"
About this Cook
I am a ship's chief cook. I work 7 days a week, and live aboard a Great Lakes Freighter up to 3 months at a time. My crew of about 27 come from all parts of the country, and it is my job to feed them varied healthy and tasty meals every day. This website has been a goldmine for me in my quest for new ideas, and recipes that I know are good, from reading user reviews.

Loaded Vegetarian Quiche
Made as directed for lunch aboard my ship and was very popular, and very attractive. Will definitely do again. Had to use mixed cheddar/Monterey cheese as that is what I had.

Sweet and Sour Pork Tenderloin
Sorry, I found this to have way too much vinegar taste. I would almost halve the amount. I also had to add cornstarch/water to thicken it slightly. I did like the step for caramelizing the pineapple. Very tasty. I also added green peppers and onions to round out the dish.

Mexican Rice III
This rice dish is Fabulous as written! I do add a little Tumeric to the chicken broth to give the dish a nice yellow colouring, though.
