About this Cook
I grew with a dad that loved to cook on weekends....he was a great cook...my mom was a great cook once...when she used my dads steak filets as pot roast...well it was the best pot roast I ever had i told my dad...I dont think he ever got over that one...LOL...I have 4 kids and when they were growing up I would make things with them..to show them around different spices and things...I love cooking for friends and family...Ive been in the catering biz 30yrs and I still rather cook as a hobby...but its never work in the kitchen for me...its a passion of love for great food and great times...the two go together....

My cooking tragedies

Frosting I had to get it to a rolling boil to get that golden brown...I let it cook at about 6 on setting for about 8 mins , then I put it on 9 for a few mins then truned it til 8 and kept stirring for about 3 or 4 mins and it turned golden brown.
