About this Cook
As a lad I never had time or intrest to spend any time in the kitchen except to shovel it in. Too busy with boy stuff. Moved out at 17 and had no choice but to cook to eat. As the years went by it sort of became a time to relax as well as a rewarding hobby. Lets face it, the kudos from the gathering and the demands for the recipes, sweet. In todays rat race, the slow time in the kitchen or at the grill spent with friends and family is always cherished. So far I'm lucky enough to still have my mom around to call when something is not turning out quite right and ask what do I need to do now to fix it. A little luck never hurts either.
