Hornblower's Oven Baked Chicken
Pineapple Upside-Down Cake V
My Boy !!
About this Cook
Ive Been Cookin' On Stage AND In The Kitchen since I Was 16. I Remember Watching Julia Childs And Graham Kerr (Galloping Gourmet)I Was Truly Fascinated. My First Dish At 16 Was A Cheese Souffle'. My Grandmother was A Major Influence And I Have Several Of Her Cookware Pieces And Use Them To This Day! I Am A 47 Year Old Father Of One.
My favorite things to cook
I'm Pretty Ambitious In The Kitchen However My Pet Peeve Is Cleanliness! I Clean As I Go And The Kitchen Is As Clean At the End Of The Dish As It Was In The Beginning. Im A Meat and Potatos Guy, But Not Opposed To Whipping Up Wonderful Salads Or Deserts. I Also Enjoy Ethnic cuisines
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom And Dad Didn't Cook Anything truly Fancy But A Few Things Like "Moms Potato salad" Was At Many Family Functions. She also Made A "Braised Round Steak w/ Golden Mushroom Gravy" For Us As Kids,I Will Still Make This To This Day To Bring Back Those Wonderful Flavor Memories.
My cooking triumphs
I Was Really Amazed To Find Out The Chinese Food doesnt allways Come From A Can With Crunchy Noodles. And That Cheese Comes From The Refrigerator And Not Aisle 12 (Velveeta) I Now Have Catered For Groups Over 70 And Pulled It Off!
My cooking tragedies
There Have Been SO MANY! I Think That Is What Makes All Cooks Better !

D's Famous Salsa
Sooo Easy! But Do Add extra Cilantro And 1 Or 2 Fresh Chilis. I Strained Off Some Juice (Good Idea but save it)I Will Not Buy "Store Bought" Ever again. -Hornblower

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake V
Two Very Important things To Remember .. 1- DO NOT FORGET Which Pan Has The TOP Layer In It. 2- Place Pineapple down before coconut layer. As you see in the photo, the pineapple tends to disappear. AWESOME Recipe However! -Hornblower

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ
The Pork Pulled apart Perfectly. You really Need a Great BBQ Sauce To Add to The Meat once You Remove It From The Broth. On A Soft Roll With Coleslaw On Top ... Yummo
