About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was working for an Ambulance company in paramedics. I got good enough that the guys would cover my calls so I could cook for all of our shifts. My mother was a homemaker and cooked everything from scratch. So, I learned the traditional way and all I can say is, Thank You Mom!
My favorite things to cook
Anything with meat in it is my favorite. I figure that I am at the top of the food chain and I am taking every advantage of it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Too many to list, but I plan to start adding some of them here to share with everyone else who is generously sharing.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for 25 to 50 plus people at our birthday parties, holiday parties and our ever popular summer pool parties!
My cooking tragedies
The occasional overcooked dish from being distracted or partying with my friends and not paying attention!

Olive Chicken I
This is an excellent recipe. After reading the other reviews re the seasoning, I doubled the paprika, ginger and added a teaspoon Thyme. I had whole (not pitted) green olives and shaved about 20 of them. I figured they would flavor it more due to the cut up pieces, so I did not add salt. As it reduced, it was flavored perfectly and it didn't need any. The rest of the recipe I followed normally and accompanied it with sticky white rice. I expected a new unique experience with the olive flavor and I wasn't disappointed. My wife and I loved it and I couldn't eat enough of it. My teenager turned her nose up at it, but I chalk that up to her not liking green olives. I will make this again and again. This recipe is very different, but in a great way...we personally loved it. Thank you!

Prime Rib Soup
Loved this recipe. I had a 12 pound prime rib so I had 5 bones. I upped the recipe accordingly. I also knew I would want more meat so I cleaned and cubed a steak sized portion to add to the ribs so we could have more meat in the dish. So I guess I made it a stew/soup. Yes it is time consuming, but what good soup or stew isn't. Because I heavily season my prime rib roasts, I waited until after I added all the cooked ingredients before adding any salt or pepper. I did not add mushrooms because even though I love everything else, that is one thing this cook doesn't eat! lol I also chopped about three quarters of a bunch of green onions and threw them in about 5 min before it were finished to get some of the flavor into the soup. Bottom line is... the flavors were great, it was worth the effort and I look forward to making it again after my next prime rib. Thank you Emily!
