About this Cook
Our family recently moved from the DFW area of about 6.5 million to Paris, TX, a town of a little over 25k. I've started pastoring a small Presbyterian church, Faith Presbyterian, and our whole family is absolutely LOVING small-town life!
My favorite things to cook
I'm a spicy food, pepper-head, Mexican-food snob/nut! I love to make my own salsa and hot sauces, love trying out new mixes and seasoning combinations in my Mexican cooking, and am always up for a little baking as well (assuming I have time now that I'm juggling 3 kids!).

Roasted Duck
Fantastic. I'll leave this review with the same impression I had of the dish - "Simple Is Best"

Pumpkin and Sausage Soup
Amazing! First time in a long time that I've had something that both my wife AND myself - along with ALL 3 kids - absolutely raved about! When the 2 year old and the 5 year old are going back for third and fourth helpings then you know you're onto something good! I followed the recipe as closely as I could, but was missing a few ingredients and had to substitute. I used a leftover pumpkin that had been decorating the front porch for quite a while and roasted it in the over for a couple of hours. After pureeing it and adding 1/2 pound of breakfast sausage (all I had on hand!), I mixed in about 5 cups of stock along with the other ingredients - doubled the butter (since FAT is FLAVOR!), substituted whole milk for the cream (again, all I had on hand!) and substituted molasses for the praline liqueur AND the brown sugar. All I can say is - TRY IT. This will definitely become one of your new "go-to" Fall recipes!

Shelby's Microwave Meat Loaf
Awesome! Raising three kids has made me MORE and MORE appreciative of short-cut recipes like this one! I double the sauce to serve on the side and have meatloaf (my 7 year-old's favorite!) on the table in 30 minutes flat.
