About this Cook
I've always enjoyed cooking and now that my children are grown I enjoy using my extra time experimenting a little more in the kitchen, and working hard on broadening my cooking horizons. My two favorite cooking methods are grilling in warm weather and slow cooking in cold weather. I work full time outside the home,so most of my "fun" cooking is done on the weekends and holidays.
My favorite things to cook
I don't know that I have a favorite thing to cook. I really enjoy everything from baking, to grilling. I've recently taken on yeast breads and have enjoyed trying various recipes in that regard.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Roast beef with potatoes and carrots was always a Sunday tradition growing up and I've carried that over with my family. Don't do it quite so much anymore, since the kids are grown and the golf course seems to call my name on Sundays, now :D
My cooking triumphs
I don't know about any particular triumphs, but my most requested recipes are my beef enchiladas, my baked beans and my pepper steak.
My cooking tragedies
The one that comes to mind is when I was making vegetable beef soup in the crock pot (one of our favorite meals). After chopping all the veggies the night before, I got up in the morning, threw everything in the crockpot, went to work and couldn't wait to go home to the yummy smell of soup, not to mention the satisfaction in knowing that dinner would already be done when I got home. Well, much to my dismay, I was not welcomed with the wonderful aroma of my soup, because I didn't turn my crockpot on! Needless to say, I was not a happy camper that day! I'm sure there are other cooking tragedies, but I try to block them out of my mind, so I can't think of any right now.

Amazing 'Pizza' Pork Chops
This makes for a good chop that's unique and flavorful. I seared my chops on the grill prior to cooking in the pan, uncovered. I used dried herbs out of necessity. I made one chop without tomato for my granddaughter, leading me to realize that the tomato is an important part of the recipe! The chop without tomato was not nearly as moist or flavorful. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us, CNM CATERING!

Monkey Bread Kabobs
Saturday morning breakfast couldn't have been more fun! My 5 y/o granddaughter absolutely LOVED making these! From cutting the biscuits with the pizza cutter, the dipping (and licking) and skewering, and last but not least - eating - these yummy little treats! We added fresh pineapple chunks - YUM-YUM! Thanks for the great recipe idea, SHORECOOK!! PS - This would be a great recipe for slumber parties, girl scout troops, etc!

Melon Lime Cooler
This was very good and so refreshing. I followed the recipe exactly - (my average sized melon equaled exactly 4.5 cups). Next time I will partially thaw my melon, as it took awhile in the food processor to puree. (Pulsing helped immensely). This one's a keeper at our house! Thanks for sharing, BIGSIS821!
