Brew City Tea
About this Cook
I am a certified tea geek. After closing my tea house due to the economic crunch we are all feeling I have been working on a plan to bring a tea community online. In the meantime I have devoted some of my time to Animal Control in Milwaukee and have become a pit bull advocate.
My favorite things to cook
I have been cooking all of my life, and am finding that as I grow older I am looking for interesting and different things to cook, looking more for unique flavors than fast and easy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom was Irish. We traditionally all ate together at the family table every evening. Mom would usually make a meat, potatoes, gravy and vegetable dinner. She was the best teacher I could've ever had.
My cooking triumphs
finding Allrecipes
My cooking tragedies
Ohhh....the thanksgiving mishap most of us have had, cooking the turkey with the giblets still inside the turkey neck.

Mexican Bean Salad
Delicious as is. Add any veggies to this, change it around all you want. This dressing is a hit! Dang it though, I didn't have any fresh cilantro.

Super Al's Cocktail Sauce
Excellent Cocktail Sauce Al!! How come we can't follow you around and see what else your cooking? I wouldn't change anything on this as it is great just the way it is. However, I am a liquid smoke freak and a half teaspoon (Colgin brand) made all the difference. Thanks for sharing Al!
