started doing all the cooking for the family about 1992. My wife is a great cook but she now enjoys my preperations better. She knows it is fun for me and relaxing. Plus she does not do the shopping any longer!
My favorite things to cook
garlic chees grits
acorn squash soup,
smoked boston butt,
anything with chicken
thighs & legs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
anything "low and slow",
anything with 5 ingredients or less,
Irish dishes (favorite is baked corned beef).
My cooking triumphs
won two awards for my Bar-B-Que sauce. Voted the Top 10 best recipes of the year in 2006 by the Atlanta Jounal Constitution.
Being asked to cater my oldest daughter's wedding.
When I took my turnip greens to work for pot luck lunch, the black ladies there made me an honorary "black" woman. Now that is high praise!!
My cooking tragedies
Cooked pasta and meat sauce for my twins school (faculty & staff) about 100 folks. It was sooo spicy that only a brave few could eat it! Can you say embarrassed!!!
