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 experiment with my recipes and procedures I will post them here on my blog to hopefully get some feedback on how they are working for everyone that tries them.

This week has been pretty fattening for my family and the people at my office, as I try old favorites and do some experimenting along the way to make sure that what I write actually tastes the way I really fix it.  I have learned to record my cooking sprees so that I can get a better handle on the amounts of this or that I place into a dish.  All true cooks tend to improvise, and many of us will take a basic recipe and by the time we are done messing with it looks nothing like the original.  The trick is to keeping up with all your changes that you can repeat again later.

I am also adding in all of the tricks and tips that 4 generations of excellent cooks have left me with, and I will do my best to have them all here in my blog as well.

If the recipes flowing on the blog seem out of order or skipping around, much of it is due to me running across an old favorite that I have to share as soon as possible.  I am getting more and more people subscribed to my blog and I love to think that someone out there is getting the use of some of these dishes, and I hope some of them will make sure that the recipes live on.

Improvise? lol In my lab (kitchen) recipes are rarely done the same. I started a family cookbook a couple of years ago and finally gave up. I should probably try again.

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.
