About this Cook
I've been cooking since I was a kid and never tire of learning about it and trying new things.
My favorite things to cook
Italian is my go-to during the work week. I like the simplicity of sauteed chicken and veal recipes and accompany those with fresh vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in the South, so the heart of my family cooking is the classic dishes. There is a fair amount of technique involved, so authenticity takes practice. So much of the food is calorie dense, coming from an era of agricultural labor that was physical, so I don't go there often, but when I do it's a treat.
My cooking triumphs
I love to entertain, so I most value my ability to prepare handmade buffets for crowds and still be able to visit and be a gracious host.
My cooking tragedies
I like to slow cook many things. Forgetting about that pot on the back of the stove has caused more waste than all other things combined over the years.

Cajun Spice Mix
I make most of my own spice blends and I find that this is as good or better than any of the blends on the supermarket shelf.

Cochinita Pibil
I was most disappointed with this recipe. Instead of the succulent and savory dish I know from Mexico, I got a bland, but tender pork roast. The use of so much lemon juice gave the gravy an overpowering and identifiable citric taste, while leaving out essential elements. Further research on the recipe has led me to include allspice and cinnamon and some garlic. I see this recipe as absolutely unauthentic and boring.
