About this Cook
I'm an Austin, Texas native that loves cooking and my job driving party boats. We don't have very much fine dining here, so I usually end up just cooking for myelf and my family because it tastes better, healthier, and it's cheaper than eating at one of the 5000 tex-mex joints we have here.
My favorite things to cook
There is nothing better than drinking a cold beer and smoking a brisket on a hot summer day. I also like to cook enchiladas, 5 alarm chili, different pastas, seafood, pizza, gumbo and different stews.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year my family and friends get together for a HUGE thanksgiving dinner. About 30 people were there this last year, and the group gets bigger every year. Our rule is that if you want dessert (I always make a pumpkin pie) you have to walk to the neighborhood park first!
My cooking triumphs
I think the hardest thing I ever cooked was a southwestern-style chicken fried chicken with a white reduction sauce. Baked potatoes and greens were on the side, and it turned out amazing! The best part was my sister promised to clean the kitchen if I made it for her...
My cooking tragedies
I left the bag of guts in the turkey. Really bad idea. Once I put a one pound sirloin on the grill with the plastice sponge thing still on the back of it too. It ruined my steak and smelled terrible!

Chili-Flavored Turkey Stew With Hominy and Tomatoes
No hominy in the north?! What a terrible situation! Although we have plenty of hominy here in Texas, I had a can of creamed corn on hand and didn't feel like going to the store. It worked great! Also, I added a little bit of Cumin which gave it more of a smokey chili flavor. If you really like heat drop a whole pickeled jalapeno in the stew while it simmers. Great recipe!
