About this Cook
Cooking at the age of 11, my first meal consisted of Roasted Turkey Wings, Baked Mac & Cheese, Smouthed Cabbage and Cornbread. It was Sunday and I prepared a Sunday meal for my family. I should have made a career of cooking. My aunt Carrie was my guardian and a undeclared chief taught me how to cook without saying a word. One thing I enjoyed about her was her cooking ability.
My favorite things to cook
Holiday meals are my favorite dishes to prepare. I used to be very good at preparing Thanksgiving Dinner for my family, but now without someone to appreciate my cooking, I don't do as well. I enjoy preparing Herbal Roasted Turkey with Sausage/Sage Cornbread Stuffing, Glazed Ham, Sweet Potatoe Pies, and various other delights.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I guess it would be Southern tradition with a flare of English and Italian tradtions. I really love all foods,from all lands around the world.
My cooking triumphs
One of my Cooking or Baking triumps happened while in College. My friend had a birthday and I prepared her an Ice Cream Cake and a Lobster dinner. The cake was exceptional, but the Lobster was a bit over cooked. We both enjoyed the meal and the cake.
My cooking tragedies
Holiday times, I decided to make the Egg Nog from stratch and as I prepared the Nog, I tasted it and something was missing, so I telephone relatives, describing the ingredients, but I had forgotten the Nutmeg. Simple enough and easy to remedy.

REAL Homemade Pumpkin Pie
Ingredients in the Real Homemade Pumpkin pie is so appealing, I am going to add them to my shopping list. However, I am no a sugar nut, but this recipe has No sugar, white or brown. I wouldn't touch a thing, but will add 1/3 cup dark and 1/2 cup white sugar. Other than the sugar, this recipe is a hit and I am adding it to my Recipe Box. Keep Cooking...

Deep South Fried Chicken
This recipe is simple, yet delicious. The chicken is nice and crispy, tender delectable meat and with just the salt and pepper as a seasoning allows the natural flavor of the chicken. I notice the cook didn't say how to handle the chicken as it cooks. I learned Fried Chicken should be "Turned" only Once in the pan. Once the edges of the chicken becomes golden brown, Turn the chicken allowing the other side to brown, then remove the chicken from the pan, allowing the chicken to properly drain its excess oils. Nice Recipe!
