About this Cook
I married my high school sweetie in 1978. We spent the next 20 yrs. as members of the Air Force,(him,not me),traveling the world & learning about different cuisines before retiring in 1998 & coming home to FL. to be with our families. Allrecipes has been so educational for me & I've met some awesome people through this site. In fact, many of us have joined together & built our own forum board. If anyone is interested, please drop by & say hi. We love to meet fellow AR addicts...I mean AR members:o):o):o) I also sell handmade bling on Etsy. Here's the link if you're bored that day.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook a lot of different things. I'm not a very good baker, though. I keep trying cuz even if something doesn't turn out, it still smells good:o) I cook almost everything other than baked goods on the stove top. I like to pan saute over relatively high heat for the caramelization, then turn the heat down to finish. Lots of flavor without a lot of fat. Btw, this is good info I'm giving you for free;o)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandma's banana bread, my Mom's potato salad, my Aunt Kay's spaghetti dinner with garlic bread that I used to eat cold on Sun. morning for breakfast. (She lived one street over from me & as a kid I'd cut through the neighbor's backyard to get that leftover bread)!
My cooking triumphs
The first time I cooked a turkey & remembered to take out that lil bag of guts. My first time making my own pasta & bread. Every time I cook something that makes people say~ You should sell this stuff. Have you ever noticed those are the people that never buy the stuff when you do try to sell it? Yeah, you know who you are!:o):o):o)
My cooking tragedies
A tragedy would imply that I killed someone with my cooking. Hasn't happened far as you know. Please ignore that pile of dirt that looks suspiciously like somebody "planted" something there.

Scott's Buffalo Wing Sauce
I used this for buffalo chicken sandwiches and because I really didn't need or want this much butter, I reduced the amount to around, 3 TB. Use really good butter and you don't need very much. I used Kerrygold. If you need to moisten it a bit, use stock. Pretty good. :o)

Italian Seasoning II
I really needed this recipe today! Five stars as written but I added a Tbs. each of garlic and onion powder because I just had to. This was perfect for my homemade Marinara sauce. My guy was duly impressed. So was I. :o)

Spaghetti Squash Hash Browns
Personally for me, this is 4 stars as written. The other reviewers were correct, it needs an egg and a ton of seasonings. I gave it 5 because it's SUCH a cool idea! There are endless ingredients you could add to this recipe. Great job! :o)
