About this Cook
I am a Colorado native. I have always had a thirst for knowledge. I'm sure I'm one of the Denver Public Library's biggest patrons! I tend to find a subject and research it until I know all I need to know. Perhaps that's why cooking has escaped my list of talents (until more recently)...you have to learn a lot by doing. I'm learning to enjoy the process of preparing great meals (even for a party of one, as I live alone) in hopes if I were to have family they would eat well and share that skill in their families in the future!
My favorite things to cook
Anything with bacon & avacado and I'm in! I also love cooking roasts that I can put into individual portions and freeze. That way I can take out a serving or two as needed and have meat on hand for things like sandwiches.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up on hamburger helper meals thrown together by hurried parents. I always knew that I valued cooking but where to turn? Ah yes...the personal laptop and allrecipes.com are beautiful things for those up us that weren't raised in a family of cooks!
My cooking triumphs
I made creme brulee! Very simple actually but who thought I'd be one with little ramekins and... a torch!
My cooking tragedies
Roast beef and ramen surprise...don't ask. Sometimes surprises aren't so pleasant!

Slow Cooker Pot Roast
Very flavorful and tender! Added an additional cup of water to have more juices for gravy.

Warm Blue Cheese Dip with Garlic and Bacon
I had a party last year where I first serve this dip. This year was the second annual event and I was given as RSVP contingent upon serving this dip again. I made a lot & i was devoured! You may want to keep it warm in a small crock pot or serve in a microwave dish that can be warmed up a few times through the night as its at it best texture & taste served warm. Mmmm!

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ
Wonderful! Used Cattlemen's smoky BBQ sauce from Sams Club & everyone loved it - perfect dish for serving a lot of people & freezes well for great leftovers!
