About this Cook
I'm a social person and I love having BBQ's with friends! I love when everybody gets involved with the cooking. I'm close to my family and I have best girlfriends that I've had for over 40 years! I live with my soul mate and he is the best man I've ever known. I just love to cook for him and he loves to eat! We're a match made in heaven! lol
My favorite things to cook
Given a recipe I can cook just about anything. I especially love to master the grill. There is a definite science and skill to grilling and I am still learning. I'd like to get better at Asian cooking and baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since I was a child I've watched my mother and my father enjoy growing gardens and cooking. That is where I believe I found a passion for cooking. My Dad makes an art of grilling with his Weber BBQ and he gets so intensely into it it makes you feel like you want to learn too! My mom seemed like she could make mud taste good. Traditions are for the holidays. Everybody brings their most impressive foods.
My cooking triumphs
Any time the hubby or guests take one bite and say "yummmmmmmmm"
My cooking tragedies
One year when I was a clueless cook just learning I decided to take on the daunting task of making Thanksgiving dinner for some friends. I remembered while growing up watching my mom prepare the turkey (i.e. washing it,drying it,seasoning it etc.) so I did my best to do the same. Well I was confused and upset because the turkey farm didn't give me the bag of gizzards/liver/heart and neck pieces that I needed to make the giblet gravy! I proceeded to cook the turkey to a brown perfection and as I was carving it with the guests around the table watching I discovered that the bag of giblets was stuffed into the neck cavity with the skin flap covering it! UHHHHG it was so embarrassing! My face turned as red as the cranberry sauce! They got quite a laugh over that one.

Lemon Sauce for Salmon Patties
After trying this we didn't care for it (sorry). Instead I made a sauce.

Teriyaki Onion Burgers
I have been known to embellish a recipe but this is ridiculous! If you don't add the french fried onions and add onion soup mix instead and if you dump a bunch of other marinades in the mix then you are not rating THIS recipe you are rating YOUR OWN! Why not try it as stated THEN rate it or just don't rate it at all. That being said, I made this recipe AS STATED and found that it did indeed need garlic, salt, pepper. Grilled pineapple sounds nice too. But that is a total different recipe!!! I rated it a 3 because it's a good base recipe.

Spicy Flat Iron Steak Rub
YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY! I use flank steak as it is my fav and is more tender than flat iron or skirt steak. Followed recipe as stated and grilled over charcoal...also have grilled with charcoal and hickory or mesquite DAY-UM WAS IT GOOD! Served with baked taters with all the fixin's and a garden salad. Add hot buttered corn on cob for a very hungry crowd. (double recipe if cooking for more than 4). Try this rub you won't go wrong. Thanks Miki!!!
