About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Absolutely anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was raised on southern cooking. Don't do a lot of it myself, but still love my mom's cooking: chicken and dumplings, fried apricot pies, homemade egg noodles!
My cooking triumphs
Anything sweet, including zebra brownies, pie and trifles.
My cooking tragedies
Two. When I was a teenager I was making oatmeal raisin cookies, and they called for Crisco. So, I got into our cabinet and pulled out a can of Crisco and put the measured amount in my cookies. I didn't know until after the cookies were baked that I had actually used old bacon grease in the cookies (my mom kept it in an old Crisco container). When I was 19 or 20 I made a stir fry. The recipe called for 2 garlic cloves. Back then I thought a clove was a bulb, so I put in two BULBS of garlic. When my friend bit into my stir fry, he asked, "What happened????"

Classic Goulash
This is a classic, straightforward dish. I made it exactly as is, and it is great.

Sour Cream Pork Chops
These are excellent. The best part is how tender they are after they are done. And, the sauce is terrific! I followed the recipe exactly.

Crab Stuffed Flounder
Loved it. I, too, doubled the mustard and Worcestershire. Also added about 1/2 tsp. of Old Bay seasoning, and I believe this made a difference. Not bland at all. I did not put the yolk and mayo sauce on top of the stuffing as it didn't sound good to me. I think it was fine without it.

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
