About this Cook
I started out cooking when I was in elementary school. My mom is a beautician and got home late some evenings. It started as "Take the meatloaf out of the fridge and put it in the oven. Now turn the oven on to 350. I will be home in an hour.", and by high school it was, "There are ingredients in the fridge for meatloaf (spaghetti, bbq chicken....) and I will be home at 7".
My favorite things to cook
I am a typical guy... steak is always a favorite (I was a butcher in a gourmet shop for a couple of years). I also love pasta, mexican and especially southern comfort food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Vegatables and casseroles. My family is big on vegetables and casseroles for the hollidays.

Lentil and Sausage Soup
This is a great cold weather soup. I will be making this again. Would be great in a crock pot for the super bowl or any potluck.

Broccoli Cheese Soup VI
Really simple recipe! I added cheese to the top when serving. I also sweated down fresh chopped onion before adding the other ingredients. I will definitely keep this in the cool weather bag for those chilly days to come.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake
I have made this several times, including this past weekend for Thanksgiving. I like to use a little more of the cheesecake to make the bottom cheese cake layer, but other than that, this is an excellent recipe.
