About this Cook
36 years old. Male Cook for fun. Try new things. Attempt to perfect old favorites I've been making for years....
My favorite things to cook
Bacon. After that, anything w/ bacon in it... But then, it gets interesting..... Country fried pork chops w/ hash browns, country style gravy and scrambled eggs. Usually Cajun style. Tabasco and I have a relationship... Everything from scratch w/ this one. Eggs in a basket!!!!!!! Mmmmmmmmmmm Misc. skillets for breakfast. Chili, different kind every time. BLT's. Quick. Easy. Tasty. Grits!!!!!!!!!! w/ scrambled eggs and bacon..... French Toast Fettuccine Alfredo w/ Chicken or Shrimp Hamburgers!!!!! Chicken on the grill!!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Taking leftovers and turning it into a good dinner.....
My cooking triumphs
FINALLY getting my pan-fried country-fried steak or pork chops to turn out, when I only use canola oil in a pan and no deep-fryer......
My cooking tragedies
Hmmmmm, I don't have many, because when I'm cooking, I focus on that and typically don't burn things or make things taste bad, because I taste the food all the time while making it (seen enough of Chef Ramsey's Hell's Kitchen to know what happens if I don't taste as I make it.....) So, I'd had to say, makin' some brownies, the recipe said X minutes, I cooked for X minutes and it wasn't done.... What did I do? Didn't reset the timer and let cook another 15 minutes..... LOL. Surprisingly, wasn't ruined, but definitely had a thick, outer crust.....

Chicken Marsala
Sacred cows, this is fantastic! I, like others before me, have doubled, nay, tripled the mushroom count in this recipe, and also have added cream to make the sauce thicker. Other than that - just grabbed a decent California Marsala wine for about $6.00 or so, and I didn't use the cooking sherry, it turned out GREAT. Served it over a nice pile of angel hair pasta. I DEFINITELY suggest making extra sauce, as the chicken comes out nice and moist, but the noodles are, well...... noodles and they need some sauce. Very good dinner recipe and it took me about 1 hour total, from start to finish, to prepare and cook and serve!

Poppy Seed Chicken II
I remember my mom making this for me 30 years ago.... And this tastes just the same! Very nice! As always, though of you who know me.... I like to add some heat. So... I put about a teaspoon of Spanish paprika, about 10 clicks of fresh ground black pepper and garlic powder. In addition - 2 dashes of oregano and 2 dashes of basil. I used 2 large chicken breasts, cut them into uncooked chunks and mixed them with 1 can of cream of mushroom soup and 1 can of cream of chicken soup. Of course at least 1 cup of sour cream... Finally, instead of regular saltines, try Keebler Club Crackers!!!!!!!! Then, the 1/2 cup butter works just fine. I cook for 30 minutes, check it and usually let it ride another 10 to 15 minutes. DO NOT OVERCOOK or the crackers taste terrible.... All-in-all, this goes great with garlic mashed potatoes, rice (white or otherwise) or pasta. A truly versatile dish! Cheers!

Authentic German Potato Salad
Ich bin ein Berliner!!!!! No.... I'm not a jelly doughnut..... But this german potato salad COMPLETELY RULES!!!!!!!!!!!! I made this 5 days ago, and followed the recipe to the letter. VERY good, but I have to say, I made it again tonight with these changes and I like my changes.... Mmmmmmmmmmmm I cut my potatoes into cubes, but smaller cubes, so I can cram more of them into my mouth, and... so they cook faster.... 4 slices of bacon?...... If I was on a diet! I use 6 to 8 slices depending on how much I have left in the fridge. As for putting in half and mixing and then 1/2 on top at the end, that's good for show, so if you're taking it to a group outing or cook-off, then do that for show, but if you're eating it on your own, just put 100% in the pan and mix together for best results. I also use Apple Cider Vinegar and more like 1/3 cup for this many potatoes. Apple Cider Vinegar is DEFINITELY worth it, as it adds a little kick to the 'taters. Thanks!
