About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was old enough to reach the stove. I started cooking professionally at the age of 15 when I got a job as a cook's assistant. I have cooked and managed all differant styles of restaurants since then. Currently I am in college getting my degree in Culinary Arts.
My favorite things to cook
I love to experiment and try new things and new variations on old things. Cooking is my passion and I really don't care what it is I'm cooking, as long as I'm learning something from it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father was classically trained as a Chef. My mother learned to cook during the Depression and the rationing of WWII. Between them I learned to make gourmet meals out of whatever was on hand.
My cooking triumphs
In my first job managing a restaurant I took a failing business and, for the first time in 10 years (and 10 owners,) I turned it around and began making a profit.
My cooking tragedies
As I was celebrating my Triumph with that restaurant I was fired. I found out too late that the person who had bought the restaurant had bought it because of it being a consistant failure. He wanted it for a tax writeoff.

Candied Yams
I started making this when my kids were little. Now I'm a Grandfather and I still get requests for it every year. I always have to double the recipe. The variation that I use is to drain the cans, reserving 1/2 cup of the juice. Then I add 1/2 cup spiced rum and 2 teaspoons of ground allspice (for a double recipe). Also I do not add the marshmallows until the last few minutes of cooking - just long enough for them to melt slightly and take on some color. To make sure all the pieces are completely coated, I'll stir them a couple of times while baking, the last time being just before I add the marshmallows.
