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...

Coconut Cashew Tuna Tartare
Yummy! Added toasted black sesame seeds and then served on top of wonton triangles sprayed with olive oil spray, sprinkled with white sesame seeds, toasted about 5 minutes in the oven. Put a sprig of cilantro on each slice and serve! Rave reviews from guests.

Spicy Mango Salad
Loved this!! So simple and tasty. Next time I'll use red onion as shallots are a bit overpowering. Chopped up little that was left over and put over grilled salmon - Yummy!!

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.
