About this Cook
Divorced, mid 40's male, Wisconsin. Loves to cook, eat, socialize, and ride his harley.
My favorite things to cook
The big traditional hoilday meals. Love to go all out with every holiday meal. Keeping traditions passed down to me alive.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When we bake ham for a holiday meal, we always smear it with brown sugra, and then use whole cloves to stab into the meat & fat. Makes a sweet & spicey ham, PLUS...then you suck out the fat that accumilates while baking, and make Ham gravy out it. It is addicting to say the least. Give it a try.
My cooking triumphs
Meats & marinades. Whether you bake it, grill it, broil, or smoke it. Preparations of the meat is a given. Example: When I make boneless bourbon style pork tenderloin on the grill, I marinade this in the refridge for a minimum of 72 hrs prior to cooking. Makes a huge difference. The same goes with a good smoking brine.
My cooking tragedies
I'm not a baker. My daughter can make a really good pie out of anything. And her flakey crusts are to die for. But dad...nope. I can do an easy out of the box cake. LOL But thats about it for baking.

Baked Ham
This is how my mother did it all my childhood and how I have passed it down to the kids. With the exception, we don't add water. We use a turkey baster and suck out the fat, put into our cast iron skillet and make Ham gravy out of it. Most people say Ham gravy? But everyone becomes a fan after eating their ham with ham gravy. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. Ham gravy over your mashed potatoes and meat. Yum!
