About this Cook
I'm a self-taught cook who learned by watching my mom cook when I was a teenager, and by necessity once I lived on my own because I hate microwave meals.

Baked Dijon Salmon
Fantastic! When the weather gets cold, I don't like going outside to grill, and I was looking for a different way to prepare salmon. This recipe was not only easy to make, but very tasty. I added just a touch more Dijon mustard because I like Dijon mustard, otherwise, I followed the recipe directions to the letter, except instead of brushing each salmon filet "lightly", I brushed each filet "generously". I served the salmon with a mixed green salad and it was a hit. My wife loved it. I don't understand people who "hate" this recipe, they must be difficult to please. Perhaps they can hire a personal chef to make their salmon to please their palate. Sheesh.

Bolivian Saltenas
My father was born in Bolivia, and his family ran a salteneria in La Paz when he was a teenager. I wanted to make my own saltenas, so I was happy to find this recipe. I was disapointed about how dry they came out, even following the directions to the letter. I'm wondering if I should not have drained the "excess grease" as the recipe calls for, and maybe left it in so it would make a sauce of some kind.

Balsamic Baked Tilapia
Super tasty and easy. I used a couple of tilapia filets from Costco. I sauted the onions and peppers, and added a clove of crushed, fresh garlic for just a minute before adding the balsamic vinegar. I also topped with feta cheese instead of blue cheese. There wasn't much sauce once I pulled the dish out of the oven, so I drizzled a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar on the greens before topping with the tilapia filets. Big hit! Will make again.
