About this Cook
I am a 44+y/o guy that loves to cook, in a long term relationship with a great cook in his own right, named Bill. We have a "very part-time " catering thing we do, largest party was for 100 people, several weddings ,and many a b-day party. We mostly cook for each other and a couple lucky folks that get to taste test.....
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook most anything but have always tried to make up my own recipes as well. They do call me the "fry king"...LOL I like cooking for the crowd ,cooking for less than six is a snack bar. I make a lot of homemade bread items as well, can my own jellies and relishes too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Gosh, must be Thanksgiving. I do a spread that will not fit into one room much less one table. Mom now comes to my house for all the holidays and calls for recipe advice. Cooking for the "dear departed" is big here in the south as well, if I know you and your loved one passes you are sooo getting a HUGE casserole "to die for" from me....pardon the pun!
My cooking triumphs
There's one huge one I guess, I would say it was catering a wedding for our best friend's son this last November. We, Bill and I, got a standing ovation from entire reception party for our layout.
My cooking tragedies
I am honest enough to say that I have had my tragedies more than I care to mention, but I've yet to poison anyone.... yet....LOL Through failure one learns to succeed.

Chocolate Fudge Pound Cake
This is such a great recipe. I did only one tweek, I used cooking spray and then dusted pan with cocoa(unsweetend) instead of flour, makes for a much cleaner looking cake out of the pan and adds a another layer of chocolate flavor as well.

Vanilla Wafer Cake II
I followed recipe down the line...made sure to blend well after each egg, crushed wafers to a coarse texture not powdery, and used a QUALITY bundt pan with p-bury spray w/flour as pan prep....I allowed cake to cool only 3-5 minutes and pushed edges down with thumb around pan and turned it was perfect this is the pic as it shows cake now.
