About this Cook
I cooked professionally for 13 years. It's lots harder than you would think, not like the TV shows and magazines make it and the hours are terrible. But I loved it anyway but When I had an opportunity to move in to an IT career and made the jump. I do most the cooking at home for my wife even though she is an excellent cook. I have a passion for cooking and will try almost anything. As I've gotten older I have been focusing on more healthy cuisine with lower fat and sodium.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that can be cooked in a Weber kettle style charcoal grill. Meats, veggies, fruits, even pizza.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving turkey on my Weber grill.

Avocado Baked Eggs
After a few changes I really like this. One is I placed the ramekins in a pan of water while cooking, cooking time will likely need to be increased if you use refrigerated ingredients, and I didn't carve out the avocado. I cracked the egg into the avocado and used a thin knife to cut the white and let it run down in the ramekin. I also seasoned the entire avocado half, inside and out with seasoned salt. I added some chopped precooked turkey sausage. And sprinkled a little finely diced onion over them, a few slivers of Parmesan cheese, and topped with a little paprika for color. What's not to like? Mmmmmm.
