I love to salt water fish and spend time at the coast. (I usually catch the most trout and redfish!) I love seafood, and cooked in a popular seafood restaurant for several years. Growing up in the south, I also love southern food and Sweet tea!! I am really into gardening and grow tons of tomatoes, even though I don't eat them. My friends and family will kill for a homegrown tomato. I own and manage a automotive repair and body shop, but still experimental cook 3 or 4 nights a week.
My favorite things to cook
I don't really have a favorite, but I really enjoy experimenting with southern deserts like bread pudding, peach cobbler, buttermilk pies, etc. I get an idea about a recipe and will look at allrecipes.com for good recipes that have tons of 4 l/2 or 5 stars.
My cooking tragedies
I can't think of a particular cooking tragedies, I have had plenty over the years. But... I was so proud of my first glazed Easter ham, it was so beautiful. As our guest arrived, one of them had a new car so everyone when outside to admire it. Much to my dismay when I went back into the house the Easter ham was gone...our neighbors dog had come in the back door and ran away with it!
