About this Cook
My cooking triumphs
For sure...Boeuf Bourguignon! (yes I had to Google to spell it) Inspired by the Movie: Julia and Julia. Truly an ambitious dish for my skill level. However, my equally inspiring, and lovely girlfriend assisted (supervised) me in the endeavor. In the end... after 6 hrs: one huge pile of dirty pans and dishes, 1/2 empty bottle of Vermouth, empty wine bottle, and one of the richest, deepest, most flavorful French entree's I have ever tasted!! Well worth the effort! and a great way to spend a snowy Wisconsin Sunday!
My cooking tragedies
Well...there are many, but, the one that stands is out is the time I created an elaborate Asian dish. Near the end adding the finishing touch and final ingredient...I hurriedly and mistakingly added a 1/4 cup of Worcestershire instead of (you guessed it) Soy sauce. Even the dog looked at me with disdain. The very reason I keep a cache of frozen Pizza's on hand!!

Tater Tot Hot Dish II
I loved this, and is so perfect, it's idiot proof! I use cream of chicken soup, and a layer of shredded marble jack between the beef and tot's. Also add a little sour cream to the mix and top with french fried onions before baking. Delicious. and the left-overs are even better once it all melds! Thank you!

Best-Ever Meatloaf
This was awesome!! made it as written, but, instead bred crumbs I used crushed seasoned croutons left over from a Thangsgiving stuffing mix. I also used 2/3 of the soup in the mix, and laid 1 full strip of apple smoked bacon, along w/remaining 3rd of the soup across the top before baking. Moist and delicious! I served it w/oven mac and cheese and steamed veggies. It created a perfect, hearty Wisconsin winter plate!
