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.

Sweet & Spicy St. Louis Ribs
These were good ribs with a somewhat different flavor due to the cinnamon and cloves. While I liked them, my personal preference is for a less sweet rib. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Smithfield!

Amazing Cucumber Basil Salad
I'm not sure how I feel about this dish as a salad, or side dish, per se. I agree with another reviewer, in that it would make a nice topping for grilled chicken. I felt the flavors were a little too strong to eat alone as a side dish or salad, at least for our preferences. Thanks for sharing your recipe, RainbowJewels!

Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns
5 stars all the way! I cut this recipe in half and was able to get 12 medium sized rolls that fit perfectly in a 13x9 baking dish. I thought the amount of filling was perfect and the frosting was a nice accompaniment to the rolls. Thanks for sharing this great recipe, FIONASMOM! It's a keeper!
