About this Cook
For the first 17 years of our marriage, I did all the cooking. For the next 23 years, my husband did all the cooking. Now that we're retired, it looks like it's my turn again! Thank goodness I've found AR!! UPDATE: For the first three years of retirement, it was the same old, same old recipes. (I've always professed that 'I hate cooking') For the past three years of retirement (since finding AR), I've actually started enjoying cooking. I now really look forward to trying new recipes (mostly recommended by the peeps) and ... oh my goodness, I'm even taking pictures!! lol

Grilled Pork Tenderloin
Simple and delicious! We're not big fans of BBQ sauce so we left it off. Pork was tender and juicy. Thanks, Cathy.

Venison Pot Roast and Gravy
I used venison tenderloin and followed the recipe except for substituting olive oil for the butter. The flavour was excellent; the meat was tender in 50 minutes and the gravy was perfect. This is definitely a keeper. Thanks, Ron!

Bada Bing Bada Banged Potatoes
I didn't have new potatoes so just cubed some regular red potatoes and omitted the "smashing" part. They turned out nice and crispy and flavourful. It's a great blend of spices. I made up extra to keep in the fridge. It's good mixed with bread crumbs or for any recipe that calls for Parmesan cheese. Very handy and delicious. Thank you, CJ McD!
