About this Cook
I am a chef for an Oil Field Service company. My cooking is done in the Gulf of Maxico on a large vessel known as a Liftboat.
My favorite things to cook
I mainly cook Southern style, Cajun is a good part of it, but also typical American, like BBQ,Tex-Mex. etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mainly Eastern European, "peasnt' food, like your goulashes, various stews and soups, very economical style of cooking.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for upwards of fifty people by myself! Since 90% are big eaters, oil field workers, that means they eat like there are seventy five "normal" eaters.
My cooking tragedies
One of my worst was mistaking Liquid Smoke for Vanilla (the bottles looked the same) in a batch of bread pudding. There is no way I can describe how badly that tasted!

Exotic Pomegranate Chicken
I give this a word rating good, because it can be improved in my opinion by not limiting the chicken to legs, and by thickening the sauce with corn starch and garnishing with pom seeds sprinkled onto it. If doing so, using the extra juice would be good in the marinade but test for sweetness and tartness.

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic
With very little if any tweaking such as eliminating the pecans,this is a sweet potato pie filling.

Talk of the Town SUPERBurgers
Outstanding! And if you want to "kick it up a notch" use hot banana pepper rings and a 1/2 tsp. Cayenne pepper.
