About this Cook
I love to eat, and at 6'10" 260lbs I do that a lot, so I had to learn how to cook. My Mom and Grandma were great cooks and taught me a lot, especially not to be afraid to try something new.
My favorite things to cook
Love to grill and love the crock pots (I have 6 of them).
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have made sure that my children were in the kitchen when they were young so they could learn to do it themselves and to teach them a recipe is just a suggestion: change it to make it your own. Sometimes you win and....
My cooking triumphs
I have submitted many recipes but I finally got published!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to remember but I know now to wear my glasses as I grab jars from the shelves (my baking soda and baking powder look a lot alike but do different things).

Chicken Broth in a Slow Cooker
I have used this recipe several times. The last was last Thanksgiving and I had 16 turkey carcasses, along with necks and giblets (we served dinner at the VFW). I needed to do several batches, using 5 slower cookers at a time, and then froze the broth into 1, 2 and 4 cup bags to use later.

Slow Cooker Pork Roast
Love the roast but it's the sauce that makes this meal!

Dad's Breakfast Pizza
Those are interesting scrambled eggs in the picture, when I make this I do not scramble them but just break the eggs in a shallow pit pre-pressed in the crust, so they stay in a small area, and bake in the oven until they are set. Also add any other additional toppings as your tastes desire, as you would to a regular pizza.
