I am sharing with you today a recipe near and dear to my heart. My Grandmother was an awesome baker.  She could make some of the most amazing baked pies, cakes, fresh donuts, cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls and bread.  She passed onto me the recipe for her bread dough many years ago, and it has… MORE

Ok, I want to give you an old time "relatively speaking" version of a French dressing I picked up from a friend of mine in western Arkansas. She claimed her mother had made it for years, and with some of the ingredients I am not sure how "Old" it really is, but it wa different and I had to… MORE

It is eleven PM and I have been working diligently on my personal Cookbook I hope to have out by the end of November.  It is funny how when you start putting your recipes together you run across some favorites you have seen in a while, and the cooking bug is off and running again. As I… MORE

Hop-Sing ChickenThis is a recipe that started as joke and kind of got carried away. My mother is not a real big fan of Chicken Breast, boneless or otherwise, so I thought I would try to come up with something that she, as well as everyone else would enjoy.  I hope you like and let me take… MORE

I am going to try to change this article up every now and then and offer some stories and hints that have been passed down to me by four generations of Ozark cooks. Sometimes wisdom and experience far outpaces knowledge and training, and even to this day, my mother, who is 82 years old… MORE

I think it is funny sometimes when a particular dish or food becomes popular, and realize it is really something you have made all along, or at least a version of it.  A Good example of this is Pico .My family has lived in the Ozarks for generations, and in some cases, the Delta Region of… MORE

About Me
I have been cooking since i was 12 years old, got my first job in a restaurant when I was 14. I was trained by a professional Cook, also my Mother and Grandmother who had deep roots in the country style as well as the Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking.
My favorite things to cook
All though I can cook almost anything, my favorite thing to cook is breads. I have making homemade breads, rolls and baked goods since I was 18 and I am now 50!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Almost all of my Family Recipes center around Country Cooking, with a Dutch flare, or style. My family all comes from the deep country where you cooked what you raised.
My cooking triumphs
I once prepared and served a Banquet for President Bill Clinton when he was Governor of Arkansas. Multiple Blue Ribbons at the Arkansas State Fair as well as the Arkansas-Oklahoma State Fair.
My cooking tragedies
Once cooked a Standing Rib Roast that was so tough you needed a Skill Saw to slice it and it was already on the table.
