About this Cook
Profession is in Media - Film & Television
My favorite things to cook
Everything, I learn with each new recipe
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm from the south so it's fried, boiled, baked, and steamed foods.
My cooking triumphs
Each success is a triumph to me. I'm surprised that everyone like what I do. It seems to me anyone can folow a recipe and do the same thing.
My cooking tragedies
"Corn Beef and Cabbage" The beef was labeled as "Barr Meat". Everyone was congenial but we new that the meat was really tough. You could pull and chew for a long time to even try to eat this stuff. We had cooked this packaged "Corned Beef" for more than eight hours in the slow cooker (crock pot) but it was really hard to cut or chew. I did some testing with our gifted "Crock Pot" and found the temperature was not up to standards. We could have cooked that meat for a week and it wouldn't have reached the proper temp. Our saving grace was the meat had been "cured" before we started "cooking" with a faulty piece of cookware. The rest of the night vegetarian. Please test your tools before you use them for food service to make sure they work properly. Joe

Caper Chicken Cacciatore
I have a standing "Monday Night Chicken Night" to connect with friends and relax into the week. We enjoy each others company and talk politics, the world, and anything that is on our minds. This recipe is the most requested of all the recipes that I cook. It is kind of rich so I don't cook it as often as it's requested. So when I do cook it I have from 15 - 20 people show up for dinner on the presentation of this recipe. It makes for great conversations and cudos for the cook. I love this recipe.
