I was a cook in the Air Force. I became The Dining Hall NCOIC. Since then I really enjoy cooking. I do all most all the cooking at home. I am planning to enter some BBQ cook off competition. Never Know.Update-- I helped a team at the Houston Live Stock and Rodeo competition. That team took first place in Brisket out of 408 Teams.
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything and everything. Just as long as they don't have ingredients that I never heard of or have more then 20 ingredients. I like simple stuff.
My favorite family cooking traditions
To be honest my mother is a terrible cook. She does bake excellent. God Bless her.
My cooking triumphs
My latest thing I made that was a hit was Carne Guisada( not on this site) I also get rave reviews on Kalua Pig(pulled pork) on this site. and Broccoli-Cheese Casserole on this site. My all time meal that is always requested is my SOS. I tried to enter on this site but have not had it published. They are still reviewing it since 2003???? I can make some kick butt Gumbo too.
My cooking tragedies
Anything to do with baking. I just can not bake. I think it is because you have to be to precise in your measurments.
