About this Cook
Came from Texas and married a Missourian. Her taste don't even come close to matching mine. I like cornbread and pinto beans. She likes greenbeans and hamhocks. I like cajun, she likes american and some mexican. She likes crablegs and I like shrimp.
My favorite things to cook
Tacos, but I make a cinnamon sauce that I really like. My shells are flash fried and are limber. BBQ, brisket and pork butt, and ribs. Make my own dryrub. All sauce is Kansas City style (tomato base)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Probably Xmas or Thanksgiving with the whole family over. Feed about 12 to 15. Ham or Turkey with all the fixings.
My cooking triumphs
I make a basic cheesecake that melts in the mouth and is so good. I use a 10" springform pan. It is pretty large cheesecake. Never last long though.
My cooking tragedies
I do a lot of canning, tomatoes and such. When I do, I make a mix of 1/2 sugar and 1/2 salt and put it in a bowl. I add 1 tsp of the mix to the jars as I am lidding off. Later my wife was cleaning up the kitchen and poured the mix, about a cupful, back into the sugar bowl. Next day she wanted me to make a cheese cake for her to take to her work. Someone's birthday. 22 people took one bite and said it was great. HA, trying to be nice I guess. She brought the rest home and then I got a taste. UUUGH She said it was OK, she didn't like them anyway. She soon quit.

Sausage Gravy I
Sausage gravy is so simple... This recipe is with a little extra work. Brown the sausage, (really dark) If you can get a few hunks very dark, the better. If you have grease in the bottom of your skillet, do not add bacon grease. I use Oldhams sausage and it is very dry. Add flour and then cook and stir until the flour is turning just tan in color. In the mean time get the bowl you want to serve the gravy in and fill it almost full of milk. When the sausage is ready, turn up the heat and add milk. Stir constantly, until thick. Use a cold spoon and dip it into the gravy and taste it for thickness and spices.

Country Fried Steak and Milk Gravy
We call this "Chicken Fried Steak" here in Kansas City. With the mashed potatoes you will need a lot more gravy than called for. There is place here called Corner Cafe that has the best CFS I've ever eaten and I can't figure out what they do differently.

Japanese Fruit Cake II
If this is even close to the same cake my mother used to make, it last forever. I was married in 1960 and Mother made one for our get-together supper. I wrapped about a fourth of it up in foil and came back to Kansas City, (from Texas). We unloaded the car and I put the cake in the upper cabinet above the sink, and promptly forgot about it. A year later I found it and opened it up and it was just as tasty as it did a year earlier.
