About this Cook
I love to cook, read and share reciepes. However, my family has grown and so I don't cook as much. I would love to find a group of 5 or 6 that would like to have dinner partys maybe pot lucks or even having alternate dinner parties Updated 6/18/11 Now have a dinner group that shares the passion of cooking. It is fun and glad I am part of it. (Two Years Later) Found a cooking club we meet every month and enjoy a meal together.

Japanese Style Deep Fried Shrimp
Fantastic but there are few tips to ensure resturant quality. First make sure you season shrimp before dredging in flour. Do not try and skip this step by mixing in flour it makes a big difference in shrimp taste. Shake excess flour off and let sit a few to ensure it is dry. Then dip in egg and panko again let it sit 5 to 10 min before frying this help secure the batter to the shrimp and it fry's so nice. You can do the same to pork, beef or chicken make sure you put the meat between a sheet of wax paper or plastic bag and flatten with mallet.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes
Very Very good. I love these as written but the calories just were too much for my waistline. I cut the sour cream, butter and cheese in half and added chicken boullion. For greens I chopped the green onions very very small then added chopped broccoli flowers. I like to prepare these the night before they seem to marinate with time and just taste much better. Place the cheese is on the top so it browns when broiled.
