About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Anything new and exciting I can get my hands on, but organic foods and items from my own garden/freezer are the best. A garden, hunting, and fishing almost completely eliminate my grocery bill. I love it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with my kids and my life partner. Afternoons/evenings spent in the kitchen with the radio on, patio doors open with the breeze blowing into the kitchen, family and friends, and a quality glass of wine. What could be better?

Robin's Sweet and Spicy Black Beans
I serve this at least two times per month. Typical meal consists of steamed rice and leftover rotisserie chicken all mixed together. Delicious! For the spice-wimps, I cut back the cayenne to 1/2 tsp. Thanks, Robin! Love this!

Mexican Casserole
This is my first review, and I'm only writing because I think I made some decent modifications to share with others. If you like crunchy onions in a quick hors d'oeuvre, this is okay. But as a meal, I made some changes: saute'ed onions and a touch of minced garlic in olive oil till transparent. Added the beans, a 1/2 c or so of salsa, and a can of diced chilies. Seasoned with cilantro, cumin, and chili powder, before cooking for a few more on medium-low heat (it sticks!!!) Used this mixture as a base, layered fresh spinach leaves, home made salsa, and cheese before adding the next layer. So far so good. It could have used some crunch, as other readers suggested. Corn, perhaps, or maybe a well-seasoned cast iron pan for cooking. A person could probably even break up some tortilla chips lightly and throw them in a layer for crunch. Guacamole and salsa are great accompaniments. Thanks for a good idea!
