About this Cook
OK, a little about me. My whole life used to revolve around sports until I wasn't able to participate anymore. Then, the transformation began. All my games were replaced with every cooking show imaginable. That added to 40 years of cooking and genes handed down from the greatest cook ever, MOM... and voila! I found I had an incredible palate and have always loved to cook.(and eat). I was about to open a restaurant in the community where I moved to when I bought my house when the local economy tanked. I share my food with the tenants instead and I have created quite a following. I just started teaching a cooking class at the local Center here. GL to all of you and your recipes.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I
Pretty much standard and how I do it except for two things. One, you need to brown the meat. It will NOT make it dry but will actually help keep the juices inside and avoid any possible food borne illnesses. And secondly, I am guessing the author did not mean to write one STALK of celery. This is WAY too much. I am guessing he meant one RIB of celery. I use 2 or three. Bon Apetit! Chef Cosmo

Chicken Marsala
Pretty close to my classic preparation. What changes I would make are: 1-) Do not use cooking sherry. As always, NEVER cook with something you wouldn't drink by itself. You can always add more Marsala. 2-) After pan frying the chicken, take it out and let it rest in a warm place. Saute the mushrooms in the remaining oil, add the wine and some chicken stock and let reduce enhancing the flavors. When it has reduced, add the butter, return the chicken to the pan to bring to temperature. Bon Apetit, Chef Cosmo

Wassail Punch II
Much nicer hot drink than many ciders. Still, it left many feeling thirsty and needing water.... That's because of the unnecessary sugar. Recipe works better with just cider, fruit juice, sliced oranges with cloves in them and cinnamon sticks.
