About this Cook
I love to cook, but most importantly, I love to see others enjoy my meals. That gives me the greatest satisfaction. I prefer simple recipes with simple ingredients that would be considered "homecooking".
My favorite things to cook
Anything - I really enjoy cooking. Although the fancier something gets, the less interested I am. I prefer comfort and old-fashioned, simple goodness.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just real down-home cooking. Sight, smell and taste. Recipes are living documents - to be changed and adapted.
My cooking triumphs
My mama's stuff! It ALMOST tastes like hers.
My cooking tragedies
My first batch of rice for my gumbo when I had more than 10 people....had to do it twice, and it STILL didn't come out right. Mama set me straight though and it's been good ever since.

Sesame Udon Noodles
This is really good and simple. I made some changes to customize it for my tastes but this was a great base recipe. Thanks!
