About this Cook
Cooking for 2 teenage girls and my husband these days. Challenge to find something we can all enjoy.
My favorite things to cook
Anything interesting and different!
My cooking triumphs
Anything my teenage girls rave about. Usually pasta of some sort.
My cooking tragedies
They are all a learning experience. Usually it's a disaster with a mechanical device like a blender or food processor. I'm not mechanical. :-)

Pineapple Grilled Pork Chops
Agree with all the reviewers who said this was very tender. I only marinated it for 4 hours so next time I will do the overnight thing and bet it will be even better! Make sure you have a good pork chop to begin with and the rest is a breeze.

Cheeseburger Salad
Pretty darn good for something so simple. A tasty alternative. We used spinach instead of lettuce as the base and poured blue cheese dressing over the whole dang thing. Might try sweet pickles next time.

Mexican Gump
Very good with some tweaks. It is bland as written but perhaps those with less spicy taste would be ok with that. I mixed in taco seasoning and cilantro and served with lime-flavored chips. I could definitely see using chorizo instead of ground beef. As with many recipes from this site, one needs to gauge the audience and cater to those tastes.
