I am a single 50 year old cook, I am the cook at my hunting club & Fishing Camp.
I love the outdoors and cooking outdoors, I get invited to all the parties... and then asked to cook.
But I love that, this is a passion for me, Not eating, but cooking for people and watching them enjoy my cooking.
A perfect day for me is crappie fishing in the Mobile Delta, cleaning the fish and having a huge fish fry. Golden slabs of Crappie server with homemade coleslaw and hushpuppies, it just don't get any better.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new things, living on the Gulf Coast of Alabama I love to cook seafood, and being born and raised in Dixie, I love cooking southern foods, but also love experimenting with other types of food, recently I have started cooking Chinese... and love it, so much fun using a wok
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love an Old traditional Christmas and Thanksgiving,
Turkey, and all the fixings with "It's a wonderful life playing on the T.V. all day long. The colder the better with a huge fire burning in the fireplace with family and friends enjoying the holiday with me.
My cooking triumphs
I have been told I cook the best Smoked Duck and smoked chicken wings.
My Girlfriend cooked me a dish called "Sea-Shells"... years ago, I fell in love. They are on my recipe site, try them and let me know how you liked them, I have made a few changes, they are so good.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list but I keep trying.
At 12 years old I cooked a birthday cake for my mother... the dog would not even eat it, and he was a S#!@ eater.
