About this Cook
I will stop short of ranking myself as an expert cook....because I've seen expert cooks. However I am ranked, I know that I know my way around a kitchen and am finally capable of blending flavours on my own to create my own dishes that I never thought possible...a good feeling for sure
My favorite things to cook
I'd have to say that pizza rates right up there. Home made, start to finish. Fun for all ages, and very likely my most enjoyable family meal.

Cream Corn Like No Other
It was good. I was a tad taken aback at how different it was from the canned version. But GOOD different. I found it a little thick after the recommended time. I added some water and it quickly smoothed out to my desired consistency. I will make it again for sure.

Homemade Hamburger Buns
Nailed it! Finally. Taste, texture, size, shape...everything!! The one and only change I made was to pre-toast the sesame seeds. Chef da bomb! Update: I've just completed my third crack at these buns; A+++ . Consistently perfect. I grind my own sirloin and a quarter pound patty is a good match for each bun (there's 8 - each weighing 102 grams). Two pounds of beef gives me 8 patties....perfect!! P.S. These bad boys freeze well, but not for long. They will only do you a couple days otherwise.
