About this Cook
French toast was the first thing I memorized and cooked at age 5 (with help on the griddle). I watched cartoons, nature shows, and cooking shows with the Galloping Gourmet and Julia Child and who ever else was cooking. I would experiment .. and yes I ate the 'mistakes'. I learned to season using my nose.. if it smelled like I wanted it to taste.. it went in.
My favorite things to cook
Simple one dish meals. I HATE doing dishes. Regardless of what I cook .. there is ALWAYS a lot of it (I was the oldest cooking for 7 of us *4 brothers!* and now can't cook for 3 people). My easy change it up pot pie is always good! :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sit and talk to me or get out of the kitchen. If you sit.. you help prep a little bit ;)
My cooking triumphs
food so good you just wanted to keep eating just to have the flavor in on your tongue .. thick sweet cornbread stuffed chops, a wonderful baked/sliced/buttered/cheesed/seasoned potato, 10hr chili, deer stroganoff (actually wrote it out!), pie day, and more.
My cooking tragedies
I feel my biggest 'tragedy' is that I can create a dish ppl love .. but that's it .. be happy you were able to be there to eat it because I generally never write it down and it's never the same dish twice. IF you liked it that much.. ask me RIGHT THEN how I made it and I'll tell you exactly what I did to make it but I won't remember it tomorrow.

Texas Pork Ribs
OH SO GOOD! didn't make the sauce and didn't put on the grill (someone stole it earlier this year).. so just low and slow in the oven made it very tasty and tender! I did add 1 tsp crushed red pepper also for more heat. This rub covered 2 1/2 slabs of ribs (without the bonless edge portion.. used that in the "Best Stovetop BBQ Ribs" recipie [let that one slow cook another hour for FALL APART TENDER ribs]). I served this with "Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread" and fresh lemonade .. went GREAT together!

Zucchini Yogurt Multigrain Muffins
So very good and my 7yr old can eat his veggies! I made changes as I didn't have all the ingredients. I doubled the recipe using 4 cups white flour and 2 cups oatmeal, used canned pumpkin instead of applesauce, used a full 17 oz container of GREEK yogurt, cut the honey down to only 1/2 cup for the double recipe, didn't have the nuts or raisins. These were GREAT! my son won't touch carrots or zucchini or yogurt .. till now! I used a BIG square cake pan for the double recipe.. baked on 350*F for about 35 min (till toothpick came out clean)

Carrot Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing
So yummy! I did make changes though... reduce white sugar to 1 cup (it was still very sweet.. I'll try 3/4 cup next time), traded RUM EXTRACT for the vanilla, ADDED 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut, (and used the BEST cinnamon .. SAIGON cinnamon), and omitted the walnuts. I baked for 25 minutes and they were soo moist :D they didn't need the topping.. a good stand alone cupcake! DEF MAKE AGAIN!!
