Now that the new year is upon me and in a very fine fashion with the 12 inches of snow we received yesterday......I am continuing with my simpler life style.   Out comes the crock pot on a routine basis.  I am also taking advantage of the bread machine.  There is something to be said with a… MORE

About this Cook
I love to cook and am most comfortable in the kitchen with a few tunes on, a few things simmering and some good aroma's happening!
My favorite things to cook
I like to mix it up. I love a good BBQ and spent some time at the World Finals BBQ in Memphis. I enjoy trying any new recipe, punching it up a bit after the first run and experimenting. I love the one pot meals that you can just put anything into.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Chrismas cookie baking is my favorite. I make trays of cookies as gifts. They look like hell as I have cookie issues but I plug through anyway for the triumph at the end of the day! Another family get together for the holidays is on New Years Day. We exchange gifts with the close relatives and just munch on appetizers and soups all day. As busy as the holidays are, we get together for the end of the season and just relax.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs are my chili, cheesecake, jambalya, and ribs. What a combo huh?
My cooking tragedies
When my freezer go's down and I end up cooking everything in it. That has happened three times in the 24 years I have been married. What a mess! I cared the least about the meat that was in there but the bell peppers I froze meant more to me. I chopped a bushel of them, froze them on cookie sheets and then put in zip locks. Crazy huh?

Apple-Cranberry Crisp
This was great! I believe in using the original recipe first run, but was forced to make two changes on the topping that did work due to ingredients on hand. I had regular oats on hand and not quick cooking ones. I used 1/2 pecans and 1/2 sliced almonds. Both were perfectly fine as a substitute. I followed everything else as written and believe a little less cinnamon would be more preferred by me. It was great with vanilla ice-cream and a wonderful tart treat! This recipe is a keeper and will make again.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits
These were excellent. I ran out of my standard baking mix and tried this recipe. Excellent. I made a second batch and experimented with buttermilk in place of milk and some seasonings added. It worked!

Crispy Herb Baked Chicken
I have made this many times and actually got the recipe off a back of a box. I have found the brand of the potato flakes determines if it is mushy or not. "Potato Bud" name for a major manufacturer work great.
