About this Cook
Hi there! I'm a Southern transplant but also have Northern Roots here in New England. My heritage is Portuguese, Brazilian, Swedish, and Italian...you BET I love to cook! I also love MUSIC. Producing, mixing, listening, research, you name it.
My favorite things to cook
Above all...MEXICAN FOOD. Or at least, as we know it in the South; Anything spicy, flavorful, colorful.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom cooked a lot of Portuguese and Mexican foods. She also grew up mostly in the South and cooked really mean fried chicken and drop biscuits. (I mean...MEAN!) But you could also count on lots of linguiƧa and portuguese breads!
My cooking triumphs
Not overcooking chicken! Quite afraid of poisoning anyone so I tend to overcook the poultry. I also pride myself on FRESH salsa. It is ineveitably mild at the first tongue taste then whips you in the end with a bite of habenero or just plain heat!
My cooking tragedies
Pastries. I just plain s**k! I leave the tasty treats to my wife!

Steak Tip Marinade
Favorite! This recipe reminds me SO MUCH of a place I used to purchase tips from in Medord, MA (Bob's on Main St.). This marinade makes the most tender tips from a very inexpensive cut of meat. Great with rice pilaf and a spring mix salad!

Swedish Spareribs
Wow! This recipe is truly tasty and the ribs are incredibly moist! After the ribs were done I tin foil- tented them for a few minutes while I made a gravy out of the beef broth, then served it over long grain white rice. Beautiful!
