Going to the cookout
About this Cook
My father taught me to hunt fish and fix anything that was broken. My mother taught me to cook. The oldest secret to good cooking in my family is to "keep it basic and make it delicious". I have translated that to "do it to it, what ever it takes".
My favorite things to cook
Filet mignon wrapped in bacon with special sauce slow cooked over open hickory or apple wood campfire. Shrimp wrapped in bacon over charcoal. Pork florentine in dutch oven over hot campfire coals. Chilli. Ham bean soup. Pizza. Barbecued chicken with firemans sauce over charcoal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chicken barbeque at large family gathering on a beautiful summer weekend. Just plain any good ole family gathering with good home cooking.
My cooking triumphs
Filet mignon wrapped in bacon with special sauce slow cooked over hickory or apple wood campfire.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to make biscuits I somehow used way to much liquid and the recipe said to kneed on a board if it was too thin. ran down my cupboard door. That was probably the hardest I ever laughed at myself.

No Bake Cookies III
Excellent recipe. Take the guess work out of your boiling time. Use a candy thermometer. Shoot for 230 degrees. Perfect every time.

Hot Dog a la Potato
This is a recipe that I have used for over 20 years. For perfection, use jalapeno onion cheese dogs, garlic mashed potatos and top with sharp cheddar. This tip especially for the one star review that said it was bland and potatos don't go with hot dogs. This will certainly change your review to 5 stars.

Mom's Simple Dumplings
Excellent, however, mom taught me to save a bundle of time and effort by following the directions for dumplings on the side of the bisquick box. This is exactly what you get.
