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
