Well, there was also a blender involved, I suppose, but does that really complicate matters all that much? Not at all.  Based solely on the fact that I've never seen anywhere for sale yogurt with watermelon, not only had it never occurred to me that the two might be combined, but the… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a native Michigander who has landed in the Pacific Northwest. I'm not hating the 40 degree low temperatures in winter, to be sure, especially when reading about the snowstorms back home. I've also lived in Atlanta, Denver, Madison, and Germany. I have restaurant experience working in Asian cuisine and American barbeque. I just enjoy the rhythm of prepping and cooking in the kitchen with a little music to keep me company. The bonus is when your guests truly enjoy the results of all the work.
My favorite things to cook
I really love Asian food. I prefer to have the one dish with a good mix of veggies and meat in a delicious sauce. It's quite a change from my meat-and-potatoes upbringing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The maternal side of my family are of Czech descent, so it's those meals at Grandma's house that I love and miss. I feel the need to learn more about Czech cuisine so I can continue those traditions if and when I have a family.
My cooking triumphs
I'd say that making a Thai Chili Pepper Chicken dish for a gal early in our relationship has led to her sticking with me for a while now. Learn to cook you single fellas. It helps!
My cooking tragedies
I added cayenne pepper to a hot pan the other day, which resulted in much coughing and hacking for about ten minutes for both my gal and I. It was really ridiculous. I should know better, but I basically mace-d the household!

Grilled Salmon I
Got near to completion of making this recipe and then came to the realization that we did not have cashews or any other nuts in the house, excepting a bag of salted, in-shell peanuts. My improv was to cut some going-stale pretzel sticks into small chunks and use them instead. Probably not as good, but definitely good enough. Wait, I also had no soy and used instead Worcestershire. Why that seemed immaterial, I know not, but it was perfect.

Fast Salmon with a Ginger Glaze
I happen to love ginger and was therefore incredibly pleased by just how bitey a bite the ginger in this delivered. Only sad thing was that the Copper River Salmon was so delicious off the grill, it was a shame to even put the sauce over it.

Fast and Friendly Meatballs
Other than it needing a strong hit of salt, this is a great way to get meatballs on the table in a fairly quick manner.
