About this Cook
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 tomato pie, turnip greens, acorn squash soup, smoked boston butt, cincinnati chili, anything with chicken thighs & legs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
anything "low and slow", anything with 5 ingredients or less, grilling, Bar-B-Que & 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!!!

Corned Beef and Cabbage I
Boiling and not roasting Corned Beef should be a sin. Just look at the pot afterwards and see all the flavor being thrown out. By the way, Corned Beef is not a favorite dish of the Irish people. It is even hard to find in Pub's across Ireland. It is very popular in England though. That being said, I will be buying 3 CB's this week because we just love the taste. Since I'm bumming everybody out this morning, St.Patrick was a French priest.

Blooming Onion and Dipping Sauce
If you want the batter to really stick to the onions, place battered onions in the freezer for 10 min then direct into the hot oil.

The Best Pavlova
Nothing to change on this great recipe. A key tip is to lightly wipe the inside of the mixing bowl with white wine vinegar before starting to mix. This really helps retain that fluffy mound of goodness.
