About this Cook
I'm a Florida transplant, originally from New York state. Cooking is probably my biggest passion, which, if I had to do it for a living, wouldn't be as fun and rewarding. I come from families who were farmers, which probably explains my "knack" for cooking very tasty foods, sometimes just using things scouted out in the pantry and fridge. A mechanic by trade, but a cook at heart!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite foods to cook are too numerous to list here, but 50% of them will include pork, garlic, and onions. Slow cooked pork shoulder roast, ribs, chicken, and a recently discovered passion for fish are the things I like to cook most. Basic "stick to your ribs" foods, I guess are my favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Sunday dinner is something that has resurfaced in my "more mature years". As a child, either at our own house, or at either of the grandmothers' houses, there was always a Sunday dinner, which most of the time included things from the garden, and lots of chicken (it was cheap and versatile). My father's mother raised chickens and would always have some chicken in the original slow cooker - the pressure cooker. We hunted quite a bit, so there were often Sunday dinners that included some sort of game, ie: venison, rabbit, pheasant, squirrel, duck or goose. Ever present sauces and gravies were rich and tasty and would help "wash over" any "oops-es" that may happen.

Swedish-ish Meatballs
Made these for a family get together before Christmas, they were a large hit, full of flavor and the nutmeg/cinnamon gave them that holiday oomph!

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Wings
The sauce would be great on other meats as a grilling glaze!

Sweet and Savory Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
This was excellent! It was our non-traditional Christmas dinner served over rice and/or as a sandwich on rolls.
