About this Cook
I'm a Lieutenant for the Fire Department, I have been cooking for the fire department for 21 years. Live in Central Florida.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking sea food, I love catching my own and enjoying it really fresh. I love cooking anything and presentation I'm a stickler on. :)
My cooking tragedies
i cooked a stew with seared meats and veggies once and used the cookwear that was in the hotel resort. I think this cookery was made by Fisher price toys. The cookery was so thin I burned everything. It was a nightmare!

Classic Meatloaf
The time is correct but you must put it in an open pan and shape as he does in the video. If you are making it in a loaf pan it has to cook longer. I cooked as he did in video and it was right on.

Lovely Linguine
Great dish, no reason to change anything. I've been a fire house cook for 24 years. This is an excellent dish. If people change ingredients then create your own recipe and post. And for Naples comment, there is nothing wrong with adding olive oil to your boiling noodles when the dish is oil based with olive oil or butter. Your misconception comes from pasta dishes where you don't want oil in the noodle water as it causes the sauce to repel from the noodle on the plate. Enjoy!

I give this recipe 5 stars, I love the dumplings! They go good in about any chicken soup recipe you can think of. Makes the soup thicken nicely also.
