About this Cook
My mother was a professional cook and my wife is a very good cook. As a result I never learned to cook until I semi retired as neither of them would allow me in the kitchen. My wife was still running her business and looking after grandchildren most days I was home before she was. My wife suggested that I learn to put supper on the table as she had done for me for the past 30 years...
My favorite things to cook
Meat, poultry and Fish
My favorite family cooking traditions
Slow cooking and braising.
My cooking triumphs
Spicy chicken,Pork chops "Normandy" And anytime my wife likes what I cook.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at Spaghetti. I put everything including the pasta in the same pot and "boiled it up" I even had to throw the pot out.

Best Tuna Melt (New Jersey Diner Style)
I used Pumpernickel bread otherwise followed the recipe exactly. My wife was blown away and has asked me to "cater" this for her next girls lunch party. She loves a Tuna Melt and could not believe that the best she has ever had came out of her own kitchen!.

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill
Fantastic I could not believe how delicious this was the first time I made it. Several friends with whom I shared the recipe have also had great success.It has become Dad's Famous Salmon Recipe. Don't change a thing just follow the simple instructions.
