About this Cook
This section is entitled "A little about me". I'm 6'5" and weigh 240 lbs. There is nothing little about me. But if I think of something later I will post it. I thought of it ! My intellect. I cannot understand how there are so many "experts" on line. Particularly those who have been cooking for 5 yrs or less. And the ones who really are above me are the ones who try the spaghetti sauce and write in "I did not have mushrooms so I substituted green beans and was out of onions so I used bananas and instead of tomato sauce I tried evaporated milk, and for some reason, this recipe just didn't work for me. Duh..... Please. try the recipe and rate it. If you want to try to improve it by all means do so, but rate THE RECIPE and then make your recommendations. Because, if you never try the original recipe, you are merely rating your own recipe, and if you think it stinks..... again, DUH! I pray I never become an "expert".
My favorite things to cook
Anything not involving cannabalism.... but then again, given enough of the right kind of salsa.......
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father liked the heat. I swear he would have put habanero sauce on the communion wafer if they would have let him. Like father like son. I love it when my tongue is on fire and my nose is running, but I don't feel like I have it right until my ears start ringing.
My cooking triumphs
I haven't burned down the house. Yet.
My cooking tragedies
It has to be the GGM. The first meal I cooked for my wife to be was meatloaf. To this day I have no idea what happened, but when I took it out of the oven, the meatloaf was, in a word, GREEN! Hence, the GGM, the Great Green Meatloaf. We decided not to eat it. When it cooled we gave it to her dog. He concurred. He wouldn't eat it, either. Oh, the wife2b had a great laugh. So, I took my lady out to a nice restaurant for a nice meal and she forgave me. I, on the other hand, never forgave that &^%$ dog.

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich with Garlic Mayo
O.K., purists, I agree. I've had Philly cheesesteak in Philly at Pat's King of Steaks. I agree. This ain't it. But to paraphrase the Bard: This sandwich by any name would taste as good. Only it isn't good... it's great. So if you want to, give it a name, but for heaven's sake, give it a try. Thanks, Tera. But next time, try to be as innovative with the name as you are with the ingredients.

Mock Chopped Liver
With all due respect to those of you who rated this recipe so highly, it didn't float my boat. Made it EXACTLY according to recipe but it tasted nothing like liver to me. Right color, right texture but the taste was more like lentils, walnuts and onion... go figure.
