About this Cook
One of six children, very close to my sibblings. I am currently studying Hospitality,and Tourism working towards a specialized degree (Juris Doctorate)JD in Hospitality law.
My favorite things to cook
Way too many to list here.....LOL
My favorite family cooking traditions
What some call "BBQ" family reffers to as "Cook-out", our favorite phrase is to "Watch out..when we cook-out".
My cooking triumphs
The Passover meal. It is the most creative meal of the year for me.
My cooking tragedies
The frist time I served fresh collard greens, (fresh off the farm that is) I thought I had done a good job cleaning them, however there was grit of all kind in the cooking water, and to my horror....a BIG GREEN worm of some kind was among the greens when served. I turned to my Grandmother for guidance, and after her loving lesson on how to clean greens; that is one that has never happened again.

Chicken Macaroni Salad
Fast and easy yes, passing the taste test left a little to be re-examined. I quick roasted the chicken based with salad dressing [Balsalmic Vinegar & Olive Oil], also I shocked the pasta in "ice/water" then added tarrigon while it cooled. Takes this recipe and turns up the volume (3) three notches.

Chicken Thigh and Dumpling Stew
Sunday, December 20, 2009 The east coast was pounded with snow this weekend before Christmas, (in some areas 19+ inches). I live on more than 2 acres of land and there was much to be done starting at 05:00 a.m. after the snow stopped falling, I had to prep and cook 3 meals at the same time (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) as I and the whole neighborhood spent the best part of the day digging out. This recipe was, and is a life saver…if you have crock pot USE IT! Everything goes into the pot holding out for the package biscuits for last 20 minutes before serving. A single bowl and a spoon is all that is needed when eating, and I guarantee after a days work like the one we had here; the silence of the evening and the warmth of the fire are desert enough.

Hot Pepper Jelly
I used a collage of peppers (every kind imaginable)the recipe was very easy,however I decided to get creative and make it my own by following the same instructions using plums then I combined the two products and came up with a jelly that even my Grandmother (god rest her soul) would have had to bow to.
