About this Cook
While I can follow a recipe and produce good results, I'm hoping to learn more. I finished college a couple of years ago and realized there are MUCH better options than take-out and Hamburger Helper. Now my wife complains that I watch too much FoodTV. :)
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy grilling - anything is fair game. Just recently made grilled bananas and they turned out great!

Spaghetti Carbonara II
Neither my wife nor I had tried this dish before, so we weren't sure what to expect. Wow...was this good! Here are the changes I made: added 1 egg and an extra clove of garlic (omitted the wine); cooked the bacon, added onions, then the garlic; mixed the eggs with the parmesan cheese; drained the spaghetti and added it to a large bowl, then added the bacon/onion/garlic mixture (be sure to scrape in the drippings, then toss), finally added the egg mixture and tossed well. Served with parmesan and chopped parsley on top. This is definitely a new favorite.

Authentic Mexican Tortillas
These are great! It took some practice to get it right, but it was well worth the time. They get better each time I make them. I use near boiling water and mix it up in the stand mixer.

Grilled Potatoes and Onion
Very good! I've been making this for years and never get tired of it. I always make it on the grill using the foil method. Be sure to get the potato slices thin - I use the slicer blade on the food processor. Also, I mix all the ingredients in a large bowl before I put them on the foil (which I hit with cooking spray first). Never had a problem with the potatoes sticking...
