Currently residing in West Michigan.  Love to travel and dine out.  Enjoy coming home from trips and trying to replicate some of the wonderful dishes that I have experienced.  There is nothng better then an intimate dinner party with friends.

I love making old recipes and modifying them to modern ingredients.  European cusine rocks my world!  Big fan of Southern Soul food as well.

Taco Seasoning

Taco Seasoning

Much better then a store bought packet. Nice flavor and easy to make hotter or more mild by adjusting cayenne. Make sure you are using a quality cumin and chili powder for the best flavor. — minic00 4/23/2014
Steve's Turkey Burgers

Steve's Turkey Burgers

These are amazing. I used ground chicken instead of turkey. Everyone that has tried these has asked where I found the recipe and they rave about them. Absolutely delicious. I kept a couple in the freezer and grilled them 2 weeks later and they were just as good.    — stevemur 4/5/2013
Angel Hair with Shrimp & Lemon Cream Sauce

Angel Hair with Shrimp & Lemon Cream Sauce

Sauce does not thicken enough for my preferences. If I make it again I will add the parm toward the end of the cream and shrimp cooking as a thickener. Then pour over the pasta, similar to making an Alfredo. The lemon was a nice addition. — mwalton1983 2/24/2013
Perfect Apple Pie

Perfect Apple Pie

Not too sweet but allows the flavor of the apples to come out. When preparing in the pan I really thought that there was going to be too much liquid. Even when it was put in the crust I did not have much faith. I was completely wrong. This pie cooked up beautifully and tastes great. I will make it again. — HungryKitten 2/17/2013
Classic Thai Fried Rice

Simple White Cake

Simple White Cake

So few ingredients but great flavor and texture. I made them with my neise and nephew and they turned out wonderfully and the kids loved making them. Great recipe. — babyjay5805 2/14/2013
Mushroom Risotto

Mushroom Risotto

Very nice and basic side dish that can be made as a vegetarian option by substituting vegetable stock. Really Vince with fish or chicken and is substantial enough to be served as a main dish. — Turtleyeti 1/27/2013
Rat City Chili (Vegan)

Rat City Chili (Vegan)

You could fool almost any meat eater with this recipe. Nice and thick and the veggie crumbles give a substantial feel to it. I reduced the Cayenne Pepper by half due to personal taste preferences but still a spicy dish for a cold, snowy Michigan day. — natbrandon78 1/21/2013
Spaghetti Carbonara

Spaghetti Carbonara

Will make again but next time I will add an additional egg yoke. I would have liked a little more richness that the additional yoke would provide — vogelap 7/22/2012
Creamy Soft Polenta

Creamy Soft Polenta

Wonderful flavor and texture. A quick and easy side. The addition of cream gives the polenta a really nice depth of flavor. — belleharris 3/8/2012

Gnocchi Al Gorgonzola (Sauce)

Quick and easy. Very hearty sauce. 2/28/2012
Gnocchi with Mushroom Sauce

Gnocchi with Mushroom Sauce

Quick and easy. Great flavor and the mushrooms cook up nicely in the sauce. I used white button and portobello. — susanjm 2/28/2012
Gnocchi with Sage, Butter And Parmesan

Gnocchi with Sage, Butter And Parmesan

The gnocchi was perfect. Great texture and cooked up light and flavorful. The key is to use the right potatoes. 2/28/2012
