About this Cook

My favorite things to cook
Love reading recipes that make me salivate. Recently discovered that just because a recipe calls for a meat, vegetable or fruit doesn't mean you need to use that particular item...just remember the item density.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Can remember my mom cooking for our family. I wish I would have observed more. Catching up.
My cooking triumphs
My greatest triumph occurred when I was stationed at Sembach Air Base, Germany. I was invited to a late night party and decided to bring along the 12 quart batch of 15 bean soup I had prepared. Just poured it into plastic cups. I receieved many favorable accolades that night. I have also been commended on my innovative Bread Machine baking and regular baking.
My cooking tragedies
I won't say what it was, but it was sooooo simple. I was distracted. Never again! OK!! It was scrambled eggs and cheese.

Oven Baked BBQ Ribs
I didn't have very many guests to plan for when I prepared the recipe. I cut things down signifcantly. Overall it was terrific! My picture could have been enhanced a little. cj spencer

Cabbage Jambalaya
The steps in the recipe need to be more user friendly for amatuers. I.e. use oil, 2 tblspn to brown the veggies. How about how to add the spices, crushed or as is. Overall I give this recipe a 4.
