About this Cook
Never was much a cook per say. But, after the divorce, I got tired of tacos and spaghetti all of the time. I resolved to learn how to cook and to learn different techniques of good cooking. I can do it! I recently started a blog called "This .....; That .....; and There .....!"
My favorite things to cook
Starting to learn Peruvian dishes and how to cook them. Different chicken dishes and finding a way to add pasta to the recipe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chop suey, oven cheeseburgers, and Castleberry's Pork in a can. Good times, I tell you. You don't know you are growing up poor until you experience the world. But, growing up poor taught me more than if I'd grown up rich.
My cooking triumphs
My homemade Mac and Cheese is the best! Yes, it is true. The Best!
My cooking tragedies
My 11th grade French pastries (entered in a district school contest) that had a pronounced onion taste due to using the bowl my mother had used to store chopped onions. You live and you learn.

Easy Roasted Vegetable Lasagna
I omitted the bell pepper and onion in favor of fresh broccoli and baby spinach. All other ingredients remained the same. It was the best lasagna I've ever made.

Penne with Chicken and Asparagus
An excellent dish. I added Artichoke Hearts, Cherry Tomatoes, Baby Bella Mushrooms, Non-Pareil Capers, basil, and oregano. I marinated my chicken in Italian dressing before sauteing it. I served it on a bed of Aji Amarillo sauce.

Shrimp Quinoa
I cooked my quinoa in chicken broth to add a subtle flavor and used a red bellpepper to bring a little sweetness and color to the dish. I omitted the parsley/cilantro this time so as to have the asparagus and shrimp flavors at the head of the line. To the plate, I added some Peruvian Aji sauce ( as a side dressing. Wooooooo, Buddy! This was the absolute best quinoa I've ever made. It was an "Out of This World Meal" which earned me the prized and golden Stamp of Approval (SOA) from Mi Gato Loco.
