About this Cook
When time permits, I love to turn on the music, get a glass of good beer and cook away in the kitchen! I love to create the perfect table setting from things in my yard for each season. I enjoy cooking for family and friends. I like to create my own recipes and some of them will be entered in food contests (soon:)
My favorite things to cook
Mexican is so good, as we love our food with a kick to it, so I do tend to cook this type of ethnic food the most. My Chile Rellenos are better than most Mexican restaurants & so is my Chile Verde! Maybe someday I will post those two recipes... I really excel at creating my own appetizers & salads. I have an herb and pepper garden that I use frequently during the summer.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making big dinners with lots of variety. I love to decorate my house to each holiday/season. I want a person to feel warm and inviting when they come over for dinner. I have been known to throw some really good themed parties (i.e. MASH and a Chinese Party). I go all out to buy supplies and decorate beyond what most people would do, but it is so much fun to do it!
My cooking triumphs
Prime Rib - I finally mastered it! Chile Rellenos - Better than 95% of the Mexican restaurants out there! Pumpkin Cake Roll - It's rockin delish! Waffles - No one's compare! Appetizers - The varieties I create are endless! I've had several burns through my years of cooking, and this will not stop as I move so fast through the kitchen to finish and put so many dishes on the table!
My cooking tragedies
Making all brand new recipes for company dinner that I think sound really good and they are all just okay! You would think I would learn from this... But, I am so darn adventerous, I know I'll end up doing it over and over again...

Oven Baked Jambalaya
I give this 5 stars for flavor. I made the creole seasoning which was perfect! I added 2 more green peppers to which thank goodness I did! Next time I make this I will only put in 2 cups of rice, as all the rice absorbed to much of the juice. I will certainly make this again, but only with 2, maybe.....2 1/2 cups rice tops.

Sesame Crusted Mahi Mahi with Soy Shiso Ginger Butter Sauce
I've made this twice now. The first time I forgot to add the soy in the sauce and absolutely loved this dish. I made it again anxious to add the forgotten soy, well, I liked it a lot more without the soy!!! I'm surprised as I love soy sauce. Very tasty either way!
