About this Cook
Haven't killed anyone yet with bad food.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, Stews, quiches, various breakfast breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Southern... although up here they call it "Soul Food." What isn't fried is cooked in fatback. Killer for the arteries, but oh! the taste.....
My cooking triumphs
Either my crab stuffed chicken or chicken-n-dumplings.
My cooking tragedies
Cooking the giblet bag in a turkey.

Extreme Chocolate Cake
This is an amazing cake! The cake itself is easy,and comes out light and extremely moist. I was very surprised at the texture for a cocoa based cake. The frosting is a bit more complex. If I hadn't had my kitchenaid, I would have been lost. I suggest using the whipping attachment to make the frosting, and really whip it up prior to adding the boiling water and then mixing by hand. Gets my vote for a great "Death by Chocolate" cake!

Grampa Dave's Texas Chainsaw Bar-B-Que Sauce
This sauce is awesome. I used dried habenero for the red pepper flakes. I smoked chicken with hickory, then brushed the sauce on during the last 10 minutes of cooking on the grill. I also added it to the baked beans before cooking. Amazing!
