About this Cook
I love hosting a party. Picnic, BBQ or dinner party. Just wish I had a circle of friends that were into home entertaining.
My favorite things to cook
Chili, chicken casseroles, salads, pork and fish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All-American (Southern, St. Louis, New Orlean, Memphis, Tex-Mex, Italian-Am) but I've grown to include many dishes from a number of cultures.
My cooking triumphs
Never professionally trained but have landed head cook positions as well as kitchen & dining Mgr/Supervisor.
My cooking tragedies
Made chili for a lunch crowd and the dry beans failed to get soft enough to eat. People had to spit out most of the beans.
Recipe Reviews 1 review
Bread Pudding II
I used dried cranberries instead of raisins and I also added 1 tsp nutmeg, because I like it better than just the straight taste of Cinnamon in most baked breads. Was Excellent.
