About this Cook
Just a guy that loves to cook and eat delicious well prepared food. Oh, and I have a thang for coffee. So, just a guy that loves to cook and eat delicious well prepared food, and that has a thang for coffee...and... well, almost anything sweet.... and... baked.... So... basically, you know, I uh, like food...and can be a little silly at times (my head was put in the oven several times as a child and it got a little baked). Got a problem with that?...Excellent! Now go bake me a cake!! ;0)
My favorite things to cook
Breakfast foods like french toast, pancakes,omelets, soft scrambled eggs, southern gravy and biscuits (on occasion!). I also enjoy making candy every year during the holidays, taking up my mom's tradition. Since I was raised in the south, I also love to barbecue and smoke meat. Hard to believe, but I also enjoy vegetarian cooking and tofu...nothing like marinated fried tofu!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I try and carry on my mothers tradition of cooking candy and Christmas treats for friends and family as mentioned. They include divinity, pecan pralines, fudge, haystacks, and cookies with lots of big nuts!
My cooking triumphs
Making gravy on my own like my mom taught me...that was a good one!
My cooking tragedies
My Pralines not turning out the right consistency...more than once! Happens every year... Haha

Sweet Cornbread Cake
Yowza damndoozle! This is good cornbread cake! Delicious. I halved the recipe as I was only cooking for two. And it turns out, I only had 1 egg so I added a little more butter and oil. I used a small 6" (?) iron skillet for baking using a little oil to coat and after pouring in the batter I heated up the skillet a tad on the burner before putting in the oven for 35 minutes.... I can't wait to have some with butter and honey and strong coffee with heavy cream in the morning. Yum! You gotta try this if you like a sweeter cornbread.

River Omelets
Excellent! I reduced the Serving Size to 3 as we only had 2 people and 4 eggs and we still had a little bit left over. I omitted the mushrooms and olives only because I didn't have any on hand. Used cream and half n half instead of milk, (I know, I know), and a little mix of sharp cheddar, Swiss, and mozzarella - basically the last of the cheese on hand. It was delicious. Will make again for sure. Now I must walk 2 miles...maybe 4.

Blueberry Cornbread
Very good recipe. Nice combination with the cornmeal crunch. I like my bread cake a little sweeter which is the only reason it was not a 5..., but this was delicious for sure and would recommend you try this.
