This blog is going to be about simple Country cooking.  We are going to concentrate on recipes that young cooks can duplicate and make their own.

In today's world of the internet, cooking channels and Food Networks, many young and beginning cooks across America in small towns and communities have a difficult time learning the basics of cooking.  It is hard for the young cook to find many of the ingredients needed and for those "fancy" recipes that are provided by Chefs who have been professionally trained and have access to the finest ingredients in the larger cities.

This will be a journey through many of the memories that have from cooking here in the Ozarks for more than 30 Years.

I hope it will be a journey you take with me. Maybe together we can learn, laugh, and eat well!

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.
