About this Cook
At just over 6', I am at home in the kitchen or at the power on the helm. I started "cooking" when my Gran asked me to make her something from my "Little Peoples Cook Book" and from then on I was hooked on cooking. I'm sure it tasted awful, but my Gran would never say.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Pasta, Roast Prime Ribs and Sirloins both Pork and other. Of course, I prefer chicken and turkey, but thats only because they are naturally lower in fat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
American Thanksgiving finds me at the prep table as early as 03:00 for the deserts and snack tables, and then the trully difficult work begins: Getting well meaning friends and family members the heck out of my kitchen! The Holiday feast begins at 16:00 sharp! Its a trully royal bill of fare and one I know NO ONE leaves hungry or empty handed from.
My cooking triumphs
What can I say. I somehow, still to this day unbeknownst to me, pulled off a Cheese Soufle' that didn't fall. Talk about a confidence booster!
My cooking tragedies
Well, lets see. There have been so many ::laughs lightly:: There was the time I added too much wine to a sauce and it went sour. Or how about the time I arranged for 12 people to sup with us and then TOTALLY FORGOT about it!? If thats not tragedy, I don't know what is!!

Baby Back Ribs
You know, I *just* finished clean up of this mess, and I have to be honest: I love to learn new things!! I skipped the highlighted recipe, and opted for this one, and my guests are sooo glad I did. For many of you reading, you know I don't rate 5 for many things, but to be honest, this recipe is one of the few! Follow the directions to the letter, don;t muck about with anything, and you have a real richter-scale wrecker on your table. Bloody brilliant!! CM

Savory Turkey Gravy
Okay, readers, I know you came here looking for something to "make that "special" gravy", but this ones a good place to start anyway. Its basic, its easy, it doesn't take anything away from the bird, and the whole family (those that love gravy with their meals, anyway) are sure to love. You simply cannot go wrong with this one. Rate it a 5 for yourself, however, keep in mind that the less amount of stress in preparation of this recipe, means that your going to have a better time entertaining and not being "the maid". Thanks again, Veronica, for bringing this one back! Its a keeper! Cheers! CM

Chicken 'n' Stuff
This is a "right quick and down" way to come up with a filling, satisfying and welcome mealyour qhole family will savour and request again. Pay special attention to the Sodium content of the flavouring packets. Bobbi is correct, too much salt means a really nasty course on the table. Regards, CM
