About this Cook
I now live in an apartment complex that frowns on outdoor grills. My son, who lives in a home has taken over the grilling and he is excellent.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken, beef, City Chicken, Stews.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and grandma were traditional Southern style cooks. Simplicity was the byword, with taste being paramount. Country ham was used for flavoring vegetables. Ky Derby specialties were my mom's trademark.
My cooking triumphs
Senegalese chicken. If I were on death row, I would want it as my last meal, accompanied by Bibb lettuce, tomato and avocado salad topped with my mother's French dressing. Broiled butter topped French Bread slices.
My cooking tragedies
I try to discern beforehand what will work or not. I love lamb chops, but my broiling method leaves them tough.

Fresh Orange Juice
Valencias are best. Navels taste flat. Most grocery stores in my area don't get Valencias. I buy private label Valencia fresh squeezed at Meijer's in Indiana. Best dairy case juice on the market. We used to entertain the founder of Tropicana at our home at Derby time in Louisville.

Microwave Corn on the Cob
Microwave in husk for 8 minutes. Move to cutting board and cut the ear across at the thickest point. Lift ear by silks end and shake ear out gently. Voila! No silks to strip!!
