About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy braising and will eventually post the most excellent recipe for short ribs which I love to make. I like to BBQ year round and in winter traditional comfort food is a must. The last number of years I've been cooking more fish and chicken as I have reduced my intake of red meat. Can't do without lamb on occasion though.
My cooking triumphs
Most recently, Christmas 2008, brined pork roast which was very moist and flavorful.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at chili, age 16. My mom cautioned me to "quit adding spice and to let it simmer". True to teenage form I ignored this advice. The result, she was all out of cayenne pepper and the chili was too hot to eat. Early 20's second attempt at Yorkshire pudding from scratch. Having made it successfully one time, the second attempt was for company. Had I been attempting Yorkshire pancake I might have listed this creation as a "Cooking triumph". Just being honest... sigh! I have used a packaged mix ever since and haven't encountered any problems, although it seems to me I'm probably cheating.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I
Always on the lookout for sure-fire slow cooker meals and this was great, so thanks Jessica and also JILLYBEAN14 and other reviewers. (Given that I followed Jilly's modifications.) Received compliments all around for this. Definitely a keeper to make again, nice comfort fare.
