About this Cook
First and foremost is my Christian Faith. I have a daughter-in-law and son. Debbie is an amazing cook who thinks "outside the box" as she is imaginative with flavors and possibilities, and fresh ingredients. My son is my best friend and often suprises himself in the kitchen with his own inventiveness. We love to share ideas in cooking and all things, with great respect for each other in our opinions. We are all on a quest for organic foods and healthier eating.
My favorite things to cook
I am a meat lover and cook everything from burgers to Mahi-Mahi. A great delight is grilled fruit and vegetables as they get their flavor brought out with a little heat. The "real" favorite is a steak grilled over soaked wood chips for a good smoke. A special occasion.
My favorite family cooking traditions
An aunt is one of my favorite cooks as she had her own beef available to her. Her father was another one. Great fried chicken. He traveled with his job, but when home could peel a potato with a knife faster than mom, my aunt, or his wife, to their displeasure as they did it everyday.
My cooking triumphs
I think I always made good breakfasts. I think my greatest triumph was doing my son's reheasal dinner held outside with strip steak, Lomardi chicken, two vegetables, and a grape salad, all by myself, however, for only thirty some people.
My cooking tragedies
Put them all out of my mind, ha!

Whitney and Ashley's Flawless Roasted Vegetables
I make almost the same version of this and do it on my grill. I will try the Italian seasoning. I currently use seasoned salt, Cajun seasoning, and garlic salt, as well as others I see on my spice rack. I love this combination.

Sloppy Joes II
Love this recipe! I remember when Sloppy Joes were served in high school and this recipe brings back those memories when we couldn't wait for the day they were served. I made this recipe, froze in muffin tin, popped them out, then thaw them in the microwave. I have one left, then will make more this weekend. Excellent taste. Thanks

Fried Egg Sandwich
Just love egg sandwiches! And, you are right, quick, easy, better than that McD thing. I have made them for years and I wish to suggest one more condiment to add. People think I am nuts, but I grew up with this. Take a small piece of egg sandwich and put "sweet relish" on it with the ketchup. Mom made them that way and I couldn't argue with mom.
