About this Cook
I am a firefighter/paramedic with Mobile Fire Rescue. I am also a Flight Paramedic with Baptist Lifeflight in Mobile. I am a certificated flight instructor/commercial pilot and I teach people how to fly helicopters.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking southern food! It's the cooking that I grew up on and I love it! Heavy creams, gravy, biscuits, pork fat.... Heck yeah!!!!!!!!! That's what I'm talking about!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas, my family get's together and my father cooks an "over the top" seafood gumbo! I love everything my father and sister cooks! I hope one day, that I can be half the cook that they are!
My cooking triumphs
Tuff question to answer but I would have to say that my "smoked pulled pork" gets rave reviews.
My cooking tragedies
For some reason, I stink at baking fish in the oven. I always seem to over cook the fish. I guess that is why I would rather fry fish than bake it.

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup
I love this soup! I have made is several times and it has turned out awesome every time! The local market was out of fresh basil one time and I substituted 2 1/2 TBS of dried basil, still awesome! If you really want to take it to another level, add 1 pound of cooked crispy bacon to the soup. That's right, I said a pound of bacon!
