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).

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.

Cheesy Eggplant Parmesan Casserole
Like it alot but if you do the salting to draw out moisture, make sure you rinse VERY WELL. Tad salty because I didn't rinse well enough. Next time I'll get it right.
