Just me
About this Cook
I work all day at a "real" job and work all night at my own business. I like good food, but I try to stick to things that require few dishes and not too much time to make. By the time I stop to eat I'm usually starving. Anyone who knows me is always shocked the first time they try anything I prepared because they don't expect a girl that rides and fixes motorbikes to be able to cook anyting past burnt Kraft Dinner haha! I invent or customize a lot of things to my taste.
My favorite things to cook
Seafood, pasta and veggies. In Summer its' BBQ season-no pots and pans to wash and I like to play outside!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mums sweet and sour pork. In general my Mother is a great cook :-) I didn't get interested in cooking anything nice til years aftr I left home (it was sissy LOL) so I'm 90% self taught, shoulda paid attention back then though now I have to phone her :-P
My cooking triumphs
Just seeing people's suprise when they taste things I've made. I can tell they're expecting it to be so-so to awful cause I'm SO not domesticated.
My cooking tragedies
Not many. I did make cookies and forget the flour when I was a kid, making a "cookie soup", but it was funny. Poured it back in the mixing bowl, added the flour, spooned it back on the baking sheet and they were just chocolate cookies. If a bad meal is a tragedy in your life you've been damn lucky!

Tomato Sauce
I am not big on tomato sauce but have a million tomatoes from my garden and wanted to use some up. This was easy, used things I had on hand and turned out good. Now I can jar some up and give it to people who like tomato sauce :-) Thanks!

Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole
Looked this up as I wanted a different way to make my veggies. Excellent, easy to make, ingredients on hand usually (no croutons so used bread crumbs) and tasty. Had some leftover brown rice so threw that in too to use it up. Will make again thanks for sharing with us :-)

Barbeque Style Braised Short Ribs
I did not have carrots so just went without them. Used Sweet baby Ray's BBQ sauce. Turned out fantastic! Ribs were very tender, came apart with a fork. Will make any for sure, will probably mess around and add a bit of hot sauce and other stuff just to kick it up a bit Whole family loved it except for the youngest, he was adamant that they were not ribs as they did not have the right bones, I used braising ribs as that is what I had.
