I live in Brockville, Ontario on the St Lawrence River.  I sail small boats, (Lasers), big boats  C and C's and have built one boat (15 foot Skerry dinghy).  I have been brewing beer and making wine for years.  I give anesthetics for a living.  I have started to cook which follows from the chemistry tradition of boat building, wine making and anesthesia.

Anchor Bar Buffalo Wing Sauce

Anchor Bar Buffalo Wing Sauce

I baked the wings at 375 close to an hour (from a partially frozen state) and poured the sauce on and baked for another 20 minutes. They were tender, moist and hot. I prefer Budweiser as it is less sweet than Genee Cream. 2/11/2013
Simple and Delicious Greek Salad

Simple and Delicious Greek Salad

This is quick to make. I added salt, feta cheese, and olives. — Amy7870 1/14/2013
Nantucket Scallop Chowder

Nantucket Scallop Chowder

I work with a Prince Edward Islander who states that bacon makes any chowder and this has plenty. I like corn in my chowders so I added a can of this. I like the paprika for the colour. 1/11/2013
Caesar Salad

Caesar Salad

This whipped up fast and reminds me of the Caesar's whipped up at your table in 1980's restaurants. — stevemur 1/7/2013
Spam Corn Chowder

Spam Corn Chowder

I was interested in the spam as a bacon substitute. I added pepper and salt substitute. (A chowder for high bp). 1/5/2013
Slow Cooker Tex-mex Chicken

Slow Cooker Tex-mex Chicken

I added some chilies and cayenne pepper and omitted the cheese. The cilantro helped. — TheFrenchKitchen 1/5/2013
Creamy Cauliflower Soup

Creamy Cauliflower Soup

I liked this. It was quite peppery even without the cayenne. It is even better cold. — SassySW 9/21/2012
Buffalo Wings (Hot Wings)

Buffalo Wings (Hot Wings)

this assembles quickly. I used a deep frying pressure cooker (magic or rapid chef). The blue cheese dressing can be used for other meals as well. — sgrishka 9/14/2012
Donair

Donair

My wife stated that the meatloaf with cayenne was good. The donair sauce was thin. I 'll try leaving it longer. — RKG1 7/27/2012
Classic Sourdough Bread

Classic Sourdough Bread

I made this after nursing sour dough starter for 3 days. My sour dough starter is in its youth so the flavors should change with time. The dough is about 25% starter. The bread had a firm texture. I might let it rise a bit longer next time (there is a wide range of times). I used the bread proofing feature on my gas oven (100 deg F. ) which I think is useful. 6/26/2012
Tzatziki (Greek Cucumber and Yogurt Salad)

Tzatziki (Greek Cucumber and Yogurt Salad)

This is easy to make. I used home made yogurt and double the garlic. 6/26/2012
Carey's Rich & Creamy New England Clam Chowder

Carey's Rich & Creamy New England Clam Chowder

You can't go wrong with the amount of clams (I used whole) or bacon. I didn't need salt. — pdxbodyworx 6/6/2012
Broccoli and Ham Potato Soup

Broccoli and Ham Potato Soup

I made this with ingredients at hand. I substituted bacon for ham. I use Minor's soup base for the chicken bouillon so held up on the salt. I also like a lot of garlic. — Grecco 9/24/2011
Barbeque Sauce (KC Style)

Barbeque Sauce (KC Style)

This has a nice intense flavor. 5 tablespoons of chili and 1 of pepper gives it a nice hot aftertaste. I can only imagine what adding a jalapeno might do. It doesn't take a lot of time either. — Cook4Life0525 9/22/2011
Mustard Lemon Chicken Breasts

Mustard Lemon Chicken Breasts

This worked well, blended 2 types of mustard, doubled garlic. — RKG1 9/21/2011
Angie's Squash Bisque Delight

Angie's Squash Bisque Delight

I made this tonight. It has a nice mild curry flavor. I added a little water to thin it down and may in future add about a cup. I did the mixed puree and whole mix so that it looked a little lumpier than the photo. — RiverHendrix 9/14/2011
Nautico's Crab BLT

Nautico's Crab BLT

It is a pretty quick recipe to prepare. Next time I'll try some Maryland spices with it — Nautico 9/12/2011
Seafood Chowder-By Renette

Seafood Chowder-By Renette

This is a great seafood dish. I used clam base (minor's) in lieu of the chicken broth. I also used 10% cream as in other recipes I have found the heavy cream too rich for my taste. — ladynoc 9/2/2011
Mussels Steamed in Spiced Beer

Mussels Steamed in Spiced Beer

I increase the cayenne dose but overshot. A matter of taste. Perhaps 1/2 to 3/4 tsp. 8/25/2011
Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Barbecue

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Barbecue

I made this tonight as it was quicker than slow cooker barbecue pork sandwiches. It was comparable and less work. It is about 12 hours after marinating overnight — dustyh 8/23/2011
