About this Cook
When I was first on my own, I had little money and learned to cook out of necessity. I learned to do a few things well (soups, chili, omelets) and pretty much stuck with those. Then I discovered Justin Wilson. I bought one of his cookbooks and my interest in ethnic/regional cooking expanded from there.
My favorite things to cook
Each year I eagerly await the arrival of cool weather as I love to make soups, stews, gumboes, chili, etc. I enjoy preparing seafood such as shrimp, crabs, and scallops. In the summertime it's hard to beat a good piece of fish or a thick, juicy steak on the grill.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My maternal grandmother was a farm wife and a wonderful cook. I learned a good bit from her. My mom taught us to enjoy a wide variety of foods (you ate what she prepared or you didn't eat!) and for that I will be forever thankful.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies
These are amazing---buttery, rich, and oh-so-chocolate-y! I add 1/2 tsp. of baking powder just to give them the slightest bit of elevation, otherwise I follow the recipe exactly. Highly recommended for brownie lovers!

Baked Salmon II
The first time we made this we liked the taste, but it was definitely on the salty side. We have since cut the salt in half and it comes out perfect every time!

Fluffy Pancakes
I tried this recipe when the wife requested pancakes for dinner and we were out of Bisquick. They were sensational! No more Bisquick pancakes for us!
