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.

Baked Ziti I
Easy, fast, economical, GOOD = 5 star recipe in my world! I used whole grain pasta and reduced fat sour cream to help make it a bit healthier. I also cut the recipe in half, using an 8x8 baking dish, which fit perfectly. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Colleen B. Smith!

Homemade Veggie Pizza
I thought this was pretty good pizza. I particularly liked the sauce. The crust didn't quite live up to my expectations, as in not being crispy enough for my tastes, although it was crispier than a lot of other crusts I've tried. The sauce was really easy to make and had great flavor. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Bird!

Buffalo Chicken Calzone
This had great buffalo flavor and was so easy to put together. Especially if you cheat and use leftover grilled chicken! I used thin refrigerated pizza crust, which worked great. Obviously, a homemade crust would have taken this up a notch, but for a quick, easy meal, it was pretty tasty! Thanks for sharing this recipe, lukeybear2007!
