About this Cook
I learned how to cook from my mom. I was helping her in the kitchen when I was just 5 or 6
My favorite things to cook
Anything tasty, especially on the grill! I take pictures of my masterpieces to post on Facebook so my friends and family can smack their lips and wish they were at my house.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a big family reunion/fish fry in late June every year. We have a huge family (mom's one of thirteen) and everyone is a good cook. We usually have over a hundred people there. The men fry fish, shrimp, oysters, hushpuppies and stuffed jalapenos. We line up 7 or 8 tables and just have a huge buffet. Nobody goes hungry!
My cooking triumphs
Every time I cook for others and look around and at the empty plates and smiling faces.
My cooking tragedies
Burnt the toast once when I was 8.

Banana Banana Bread
This recipe was a good place to start. I only had 1/4 cup butter, so I substituted 1/4 cup cream cheese for the other 1/4 cup, then added 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 cup chopped pecans, and a tablespoon of cocoa powder. Baked about 1 hour in a stoneware loaf pan, which I think really makes the difference.

Cowboy Jack's Beer Bread
Pretty good to start with. I decreased the brown sugar to 1/2 cup, made sure the beer was nice and warm before mixing, (this is more important than you think), added about 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder, then a few shakes of garlic salt, and baked in a stoneware loaf pan, using only half the butter in the recipe. Warm beer will make your dough rise better, trust me.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV
Turned out pretty good. There are very few recipes I won't tweak here or there just to take advantage of different ingredients I have on hand. The only thing I did differently was to use dried cranberries instead of raisins. I doubled up on the pecans because my family really likes them (and because my mom gave me about 20 lbs of pecans). I think soaking the dried fruit before mixing helps make the cookies a little more soft & chewy. Thumbs up from my teenagers!
