Made the fabulous Moroccan Tagine (http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Moroccan-Tagine/Detail.aspx), 7 pts.  I questioned how flavorful it would be with squash and garbanzo beans but can't rave about it enough.  Last night we had pork chops and a side of Corn, Sweet Onion and Tomato Salad… MORE

Three more Weight Watchers recipes tested.  Wed night I made pork chops and Jicama and Melon Salad (1 pt).  The salad has a good texture but I didn't care for the mint leaves.  Thur made Catfish with Tropical Fruit Salad (6 pts).  Not a big fan of canned tropical fruit, just chop up several… MORE

About Me
I am a mining engineer from Missouri. I am currently working as a sales engineer for a company that manufactures aggregate processing equipment. I love to cook and entertain for family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook something new. I prefer slow cooker, soups and stews, and stove top meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cookies have always been a mainstay for our family. When I am at my parents house we always stop working at 10am to eat cookies.
My cooking triumphs
For the last two years I have been one of the Gourmet Guys at the Friends of the Library fundraiser. I also won the company soup contest with a White Chicken Chili.
