Before you read, if you click on the pictures, you can see the whole thing.   I don't know why the AllRecipes blogs do that to my pictures.   Ok, on with the blog.It's been a little busy.   I haven't had a lot of time for some of my usual foodies addictions, like the buzz and the continuous… MORE

About this Cook
Dad of two great girls and husband to one equally great lady.
My favorite things to cook
I like Italian and Mexican. I enjoy a challenge and tend to move on once I have it mastered.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom taught all of us boys (and girls) to cook. It's always nice when Mom has us over and I get to carve the meat for her.
My cooking triumphs
My favorite triumphs are cooking twice for my daughters and their friends proms. Both years I served about 15 and stuck with my own Italian recipes. The kids all loved the meals. Now the girls (in college) and their friends try to make a point to come out for my cooking, which usually turns out! I love having them here and the cooking helps! Also once a year I have to make pies for a local fundraiser and last year, the old ladies thought I had bought the cheesecake with the pretty swirls and passed it off as my own. Nope. Sorry ladies!
My cooking tragedies
Yep, I've left the giblets in the bird once. I also believed the pop-up thermometer one time when I shouldn't have. Yea, and I did a rotisserie chicken in 7 minutes flat. Forgot to turn the grill down from preheating. That wasn't pretty.

Honey Maid Holiday Cheesecake Presents
Excellent cheesecake. It is a very light tasting cheesecake, if there can be such a thing. Perfect consistency, although I did have one crack in it. Maybe a hot spot in my oven? And the crust was excellent. When I'm not feeling lazy, this is how I always make my crust and it didn't disappoint as usual.

Tomato Barley Soup
Pretty good. I followed exactly as written. I found it in desperate need of salt, which was to be expected. It had a nice, fresh light taste, but was a little too light for us. If I make again I will sub in salted butter for the vegetable oil to start with. That should help a bit to boost the flavor. I would probably also add in some parsley. Maybe replace half the broth with water and bouillon for another layer of depth.

Bourbon Glazed Carrots
Really good. Half of us liked it a lot and half not so much. I think if I would kick back the Beam to 1 tablespoon it would be perfect. BTW the half that didn't like it feel that glazed carrots should only be sweet. Nothing else. They are wrong :)
