About this Cook
I have two little boys, four dogs and one horse. I love to cook, fish and spend time with my family.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook all things, but my favorite is to learn to cook something I've never cooked before. Lasagna is one of my all time specialties.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family has our own potatoe salad recipe that has never been beat. I think my father just made it up one day. These days we also add bacon, but that is the only change.
My cooking triumphs
Beer can chicken and grilled ribs, perfectly done the first time I ever tried it.
My cooking tragedies
Probably the worst I've ever done is drying out a roast or using too much garlic and company didn't like it.

Creamy Chicken Vegetable Chowder
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS soup. Just so everyone knows I submitted this recipe some years ago. I submitted the recipe stating thicken to your own taste and/or preference using roux and described how to make roux. I make it as a chowder and pretty thick, however some people don't like it as thick as I do. Thus the choice in the recipe. It has irritated me forever that many of the comments say the soup is not thick enough as written. This is because it is not written verbatim as I wrote it, you can make it as thick or thin as you want to. The flavors are what the recipe is about, as with all soups. You can make any soup into a chowder by thickening it with roux. When I make a roux I keep on thickening whatever I have made until it as thick as I like it. I love this soup/chowder and make it every winter!

Black Bean, Corn, and Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese
I hate doing this, especially since so many others enjoyed this recipe. I could not eat it and my family wouldn't even try it. I only used 3/4 c. oil and it was just way too oily. For some reason the flavors just did not mesh to me. I like everything individually so I figured I'd love this. It just was not even a little bit good to me. SORRY!!
