About this Cook
I've always done some of the cooking, but started doing all of it two years ago after my wife had back surgery, which made it almost impossible for her to stand up for more than a few minutes at a time. She's better now, but I still do most of the cooking. Having retired in 2000, I have the time for it.
My favorite things to cook
If it tastes good, and isn't incredibly difficult and time consuming, I'm game. Sometimes, even time-consuming is OK, as in the case of barbecue.
My cooking triumphs
Veal Picata is my wife's favorite dish, but I clipped a Chicken Picata recipe from the Atlanta Journal-Consitution that she likes even better.

Too hot for me, and waaaay to hot for my wife. She just couldn't eat it.

Easy-Bake Cheddar Biscuits
I was planning to freeze these, but sampled one right out of the oven and it was all I could do not to eat them all. Very cheesy, very soft and fluffy. Didn't fool with the cream cheese; a pat of butter was all it needed. Will have to double it next time; nine of these aren't nearly enough.

Bolognese with Homemade Noodles
This is a pretty good pasta sauce, but it doesn't have even a nodding acquaintance with Bolognese sauce. It's biting into what you thought was an apple and it turns out to be a pear; good, but an entirely different taste. This sauce has waaay too much tomato flavor for a Bolognese sauce; the Ragu Bolognese and Northern Italian Meat Sauce recipes on this site look a lot more like the real thing.
