About this Cook
I am elderly (when I went to school there was no history class.) I love gardening --- am a Master Gardener I love cooking --- am the furthest thing from a Master Cook. I live for fishing and football. I thought about listing myself as an expert just for laughs. I'm glad I didn't. There are so many of those on this site I feel rather special, being in the minority.
My favorite things to cook
Tex/Mex, Asian or Southern. Couldn't eat any of these more than six times a day, seven days a week.
My cooking triumphs
Sometimes I actually cook well enough that The Boss (read "Wife") doesn't send out for pizza.
My cooking tragedies
Cannot cook a good meatloaf. Have wasted several herds of cattle trying.

Chef John's Cream of Asparagus Soup
My wife is the asparagus eater in our family so I make asparagus soup occasionally. Springtime especially. This is indeed one of those dishes that seems to develop flavor overnight. However I found a way to increase the flavor from the get go. Simply take the tough parts of the asparagus stem (the part you'd normally discard) and SIMMER them in the chicken broth for 30 mins or so. Then discard them and proceed as per recipe. Adds a bang to the flavor. Many thanks, Chef John.

Hot Jalapeno Mustard
The mustard seed was a BIG mistake for me. Without the seed, I would have rated this 5 stars, but they really ruin it for me. I would encourage anyone who likes spicy foods to try this recipe, but without the mustard seed.

My Best Salsa
This is an excellent recipe. Close to one I use but mine didn't call for bell pepper. I found the bell pepper really added to the taste. Too, I use a can of diced tomato/chile pepper (Rotel) rather than tomato sauce. Next time I make this I'll go back to that simply because I like the heat. This is a very adaptable recipe where one can add or reduce the ingredient portions depending on their taste. If you don't have a go to salsa recipe this is a very good place to start. Many thanks for a fine recipe, Big Nanc.
