Autumn Morning
About this Cook
I am a business professional who enjoys college football, hunting, fishing, virtually all outdoor activities, and cooking for my friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
Dishes with lots of flavor. I love using fresh spices and bases that add a wonderful aroma to the kitchen. I want my dinner guests to enjoy the fragrance of a well prepared meal as well as they enjoy the flavors.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Although I have no specific traditions, all the men on my father's side are excellent cooks. My father, my two uncles, and both of my brothers and I know our way around a kitchen and our ladies love it.
My cooking triumphs
Getting my son to eat my dishes. He has a super sensitive palate and can taste each ingredient in a dish. Moreover, he knows exactly what he does not like and can detect the smallest traces in his meal.
My cooking tragedies
My first Paella while in college. It was a disaster and I was trying to impress my girlfriend. I have never attempted it again even though I know it would be a triumph this time. After 22 years, I have matured as cook.

Chicken Wing Dip
Nothing wrong with the recipe. The dip turned out fine and tasted very good. Found that the hot sauce flavor simply overwhelmed the entire dish and the rest of the ingredients were simply for a softened cream cheese texture. In my opinion, the chicken could be cut in very small pieces and nearly doubled. Nobody in my home liked it as much as buffalo wings or some of the other dips we have made in the past. For the true buffalo flavor lover, this is a tasty recipe and could be a hit.

Oven Pot Roast
Four stars because it did not have that WOW factor. I reserve the five stars for recipes that I would recommend for an impressive dinner date with the girl or guy you really want to hook for life. Could not find anything wrong with this recipe after preparation. The flavor was great, the roast was tender enough to cut with a fork--yet firm enough to slice without it falling apart, the gravy it made was very tasty. I've never cooked a roast without adding some veggies. I added carrots and potatoes about an hour and a half after first placing the roast in the oven. My wife makes a roast in the crock-pot that is similar and always turns out great. This recipe takes a few more minutes to prepare, but cooks perfectly in about half the time. This one is a keeper.

Drunk Deer Chili
Absolutely the best. Next time, I will try it with all the meats in ground form for a more traditional consistency. The flavor and the aroma was wonderful, but the kids were not used to a chili with stew-type meat. The look in their face was priceless and so was the flavor of this dish. Some people omitted the water and it is sound advice if you don't like your chili on the soupy side.
