    About Me

    I love BBQ (duh, I live in Texas!), most anything grilled, Chinese, "real" Mexican food, Tex_Mex, Southwestern, Pho, American cusine, Southern, Cajun, and "good" seafood from the Gulf or Northeast.

    Bored with the "same ol stuff".   For years, I have asked my co-workers, family, and friends daily, "What's for Dinner"?   At first this was weird to them, to be asked about what they are making, but it caught on.   My friends, I don't see much during the Summer, call me to ask for menu ideas now.  Lol!   It has become an tradition.  We can usually find something different to keep us out of the rut.  

    My Passion is to make sure my kids have balanced family sit down dinners. 

    I love to eat good quality, tasty food.  Prepared foods and restaurant foods are full of junk, that I don't want.  Cooking allows me to control the ingredients.  I know I am eating healthy foods, properly cooked, better tasting, and much cheaper than the pre-processed or restaurant foods. 

    If it is something I really like, I will cook 1 or 2 portions extra (depends on the dish) and take the leftovers into work for lunches.  I watch my co-workers eating those little frozen pizzas, Lean cusines, and other things.   Those foods are expensive and just down right NASTY!!!  They always comment on how good mine looks.   If I sample it out, they want the recipe.  

    It really isn't a hard concept, make extra, and package it into lunch portions.  Freeze 1 or 2 servings of the leftovers and after a week you will have a collection of different items to choose from each day.   Cheaper, better, and healthier!

    If I make hamburgers, I cook 8 of them.  The family will eat about 3 or 4 and I have 4 to package up into buns and freeze.  Grab a burger out of the freezer in the morning, a bag of chips, and I have lunch.  As you can tell I like burgers....

    Favorite Foods

    Favorite dishes to cook are Grilled Chicken, steak, or hamburgers.

    My kids ask for my mothers version of "Texas Hash" alot.  I can cook just about anything.  It's all good!
