About this Cook
I was born in 1976 in the Mtn's of NC. and still live here today. I have been cooking for about 15 years now. I started out cooking traditional southern, App. Mtn's food, learning from my mother. After working at an Italian restaurant, starting as a waiter and moving to the kitchen, that's when I really began to love to cook. After leaving the restaurant business, I've been in my kitchen trying to create new dishes ever since.
My favorite things to cook
I like to try all foods, but my favorites would be BBQ, smoking with hickory and oak, and Italian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Over all, Appalacian Mtn food. However, traditionally we enjoy Italian food. Recently we have begun a new tradition: Once a week a member of our extended family and friends create (or find a recipe for) a new and exiting dish we have never tried.
My cooking triumphs
So far, nothing extravagant, but tomorrow could be different.
My cooking tragedies
Again, no tremendous failures, but tomorrow could be different.

Little Smokies
This was some of the best smokies that I have made in a long time. I made them for the Super Bowl and they didn't make it to the end of the game. The only thing I did was not put the onions in them. Just because I didn't have them. But it was great just the same. Thanks for the recipe I know I'll be making them again soon.
