Local Web site takes the mystery out of cooking at home

One point of cooking food at home is sharing it with family and friends, bringing pleasure to all. The Web site certainly nourishes that notion.

"I want to share recipes and show people it's not hard or intimidating to make good-quality food," said Sarah Singleton of Sacramento, the site's creator and caretaker. She's a county social worker and mother of two whose love of cooking and recipes led her to create the site two years ago.

Posted there are recipes for such disparate dishes as horseradish deviled eggs, clams casino, pot stickers and cheesecake.

On June 29, Singleton put up a step-by-step package on preparing, grilling and slicing a tri-tip, with color photos.

"My husband, Guido, is a big tri-tip lover and has made it for his friends for a long time," she said. "We cook it when we host get-togethers. It's relatively inexpensive and feeds a lot of people. You can throw it on the grill and a half-hour later it's done."

The "secret" ingredient in her recipe? Fresh lemon juice.

For more information on tri-tip - the "California Cut" - check out the July 21 Food & Wine section.
