I grew up a true southerner, born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. I am currently a bartender with an extensive knowledge of mixing drinks. I am engaged to the most beautiful woman in the world and I will be married in May. I also have experience in the food service industry working various positions in different kitchens.
My favorite things to cook
Anything southern, Cajun-Creole, I really enjoy one-dish meals such as casseroles, Lasagnas, etc. Grilling, and I've recently found interest in baking
My favorite family cooking traditions
Using the recipes that I grew up watching my mother and my "Mamma" Nell cook. Keeping it simple when it comes to cooking something simple such as Turnip Greens.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I ever cooked Traditional Red Beans and Rice
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to cook Chicken and Dumplings was complete disaster that ended up with the whole batch being thrown in the trash
