About this Cook
I spent 25 years in the restaurant business and have plenty of hours in a kitchen.But I would rather cook for family and friends...quite frankly,you can't see the smiles and hear the compliments from a restaurant kitchen. Now I own a Lawn service which gives me weekends off and plenty of time to experiment with new recipes. Besides I am the cook of the house ( wife does'nt cook )so I have a built in victim, er ,I mean taste tester. I come from a southern/southwestern family.Dad from Georgia,Mom from Texas and there was alot of Fried chicken,Country fried steak and greens with rice or mashed potatoes on the menu with good ole pan gravy,not to mention cornbread and buttermilk bisquits,and a tall glass of sweet tea to wash it all down.Or maybe some of Moms beef Enchiladas or tamales with yellow rice chili beans and chopped onions.yummm
My favorite things to cook
Anything seafood

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes
Very good, family and some friends just loved it. However, as stated by other reviewers, you need to make more of the sauce.And, I would suggest you sauce between layers, otherwise the potatoes at the bottom are dry. Overall a great recipe!
