About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Anything that is a main dish. I am not into sweets n desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family's Thanksgiving meal.
My cooking triumphs
Only as good as your last dish and still a work in progress.
My cooking tragedies
Summer Party - left the smoker and went to church. Came back and my ribs were like charcoal, I had more heat than I expected. 75% of my ribs were ruined and and 25% that I served had an occasional stick of charcoal for meat, what was still good had good flavor.

Chef John's Tomato Sauce
I will give this a 4 star. I at first didn't care for it much as I was wanting something more tangy. But I let it sit in the fridge and then made some meatballs and it was excellent with that combination. This may eventually grow to a five star when I make it again. Made it exactly per the recipe except I couldn't find those kind of canned tomatoes and had to improvise with other canned tomatoes.

Beef and Guinness(R) Stew
Tasted good to me but unfortunately I didn't have anyone to try it out on as my kids wouldn't try it. Made it as detailed although I cooked it in an stock pot which I think I should have added more cook down time. Next time I think I will add more carrots. Looks and tastes good.
