About this Cook
I have lived in California, Colorado, Arizona and Sweden; I am settled now in SE Arizona. My husband and his family are my biggest fans--my husband is always willing to eat my experiments! We travel and camp with our horses; trail riding is great fun. I usually cook full course meals when we camp; we even opted for a bigger refrigerator and an oven in our horse trailer!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, both sweet items and breads. Mexican food is my number one favorite, followed closely by Chinese. Spicy foods are a must! I grill a lot year round. I am very fond of fish, fresh vegetables and casseroles. Luckily for me, my husband feels the same way.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always had lasagna and clam chowder Christmas Eve when I was growing up and the full turkey spread for Christmas dinner. I adopted the lasagna for my own family, as well as the turkey. Recently the lasagna has morphed into a seafood white-sauced version for my new family which includes a couple vegetarians, and the turkey is usually a leg of lamb for the carnivores on Christmas Day. Our vegetarians eat elsewhere on Christmas Day!
My cooking triumphs
Turning out great meals while camping. I rely on at-home prep work as much as possible, both to keep the actual cooking easy and to save room in the frig.

Clone of a Cinnabon
These rolls are as close to a Cinnabon can be! The brown sugar and cinnamon make the filling nice and gooey. I followed the recipe's ingredients list exactly, but not the directions. I used my Kitchenaid to mix and pre-knead the dough, then kneaded it by hand and let it rise until doubled. Filled and sliced and put into pan in the fridge until next morning; left at room temp about 30 mins and then baked. The rolls came out great; definitely made for a great breakfast and not much work in the morning. Thanks, Marsha!

Ultimate Shrimp Scampi
This was fantastic. I was a little hesitant to try it because of the warm avocados, but it was was delightful. I definitely will made again. This dish will become one of our camping dishes, too, as it will be easy to fix with simple ingredients.

Lemon Rosemary Salmon
I use the bbq grill. Double wrap the fish in foil, 10 minutes per side. I think the flavor is better with butter, rather than olive oil. I also top the fish with the lemon slices first, then rosemary sprigs; everything comes off cleanly with no little rosemary leaves clinging to the fish. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
