About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother was an old school southern cook; seasoned cast iron skillets, bacon grease, never measuring anything, and alway cooking from memory. Everything that came out of her kitchen was comfort food and she knew that the way to anyones heart was through their stomach. Fortunately, before the Alzheimers got too bad, my aunt took the time to capture the most loved recipes, including biscuits, sweet potato pudding, and vegetable and beef stew. These will always be some of my favorite recipes.

Pot Roast in Beer
Probably more like 3.5 stars. It's not bad, but despite the fact that I added more garlic, plenty of salt and pepper, and oven roasted potatoes with paprika and oregano it was still very bland. Kick it up a notch with your favorite spices and this will be a 4-5 star recipe.

Asian Salmon
This is an excellent dish. I did add some fresh grated ginger and the juice of 1 lemon. The thick filets I had were perfectly cooked in 25 minutes. I made the dill rice, but it wasn't anything too special. I will use fresh dill next time. Add a fresh green vegie on the side and you have a quick and healthy meal. Will definitely make this again.

Honey Hoisin Pork Chops
This was very good. Quick and easy for a week night dinner. I only made 1/2 the recipe and added about 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice to freshen it up a bit. I thought it could use a little kick though, maybe some siracha or hot chili sauce. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe, Denise!
