With the new year comes (hopefully) closure to the old of last year and a welcome to the new and unknown of this year. ¬†We all seem to try to line these things up w/the changing of a number on the calendar, though we are lucky if this actually happens. There are many traditions I have seen… MORE

About this Cook
I am a father of 2 children. Recently divorced, I fill my time cooking and playing cards.
My favorite things to cook
Soups are so easy, yet so diverse, we truely love the wintertime, for we can go overboard on soups. Frying comes next (with fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans being a family favorite that gets cooked at least once a month). Next to this is sautee and grill items.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hoppin' John and BBQ are my family "traditions"...
My cooking triumphs
Breads are by far and away one of those things that you learn through error. I can safely say I feel very comfortable making bread now. I do not recommend bread making machines, as "hands on" tends to allow you to really get to know what bread is, and how it is made. The machines leave something
My cooking tragedies
When I was a child, I burnt a steak to death on the grill. The grill took some time to get used to, including chicken (over and underdone), and bbq (over chared). Making bread was also a tragedy originally, with bread that didn't rise, or did but too much, or was burnt. Bread was hard... but now, a true enjoyment.

Perfect Sushi Rice
I don't use quite as much rice vinegar, and I use a lil more sugar, but this is the real deal for those who are new to making sushi at home.

Japanese-Style Grilled Mushrooms
I don't see why these aren't getting better ratings. The seasoning you put on these mushrooms are to suit your palette anyway. If you are not much on sesame seed oil, go light on it, or not at all. Be sure to broil on low, as well. Otherwise, great shrooms!!!
