About this Cook
Married, empty nest, love cooking, fishing, boating, photography, reading, movies, musical instruments.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken, fish, stir fry, Jamaican jerk, desserts
My favorite family cooking traditions
My moms pineapple upside down cake, my wife's pumpkin cake, fried turkey, though it's been awhile.
My cooking triumphs
The Italian quick fish, jerk pork, chicken, and fish. Use Walker's Wood jerk seasoning from Jamaica. I first got some from my trip to Jamaica, then I found an importer in Florida who sold it to me by caseloads only. It is now available widely. It is QUITE hot, use sparingly unless you're like me. :-)
My cooking tragedies
My bread machine has been coming out with fallen bread. Viagra has to be the missing ingredient.

Old Charleston Style Shrimp and Grits
It started out, my wife said she doesn't like grits. Or peppers. I made it anyway. Left out the sausage, didn't have any. Put in more bacon instead. She devoured it. And seconds. And than she said she would order this in a restaurant. She has never said that in 23 years of my cooking. This was one of the best tasting dishes I've ever had. She said she wouldn't eat the grits alone, but with the shrimp, it was a perfect combination. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you for this. It was fantastic

Asian Ground Beef and Pepper Saute
I didn't have much hope for ground beef in an Asian recipe, but what a delightful new use for hamburger! I did follow some recommendations. I put in the onions and broccoli. And I put in a full cup of beef broth with some corn starch. We like sauce with our rice . Other than that, the ginger, soy sauce, and garlic did wonders. Thank you.

Fisherman's Quick Fish
Who would have thought potato chips would be a good breading? I bought haddock, my wife's favorite, made the Italian dressing and we raved about it. Its simplicity and flavors are fantastic. Any fish would do, and I love cod, but you couldn't go wrong with anything. This is a keeper.
