I am sure by the time many of you read this the day will quickly be upon us and everyone is racing to the finish line planning and delivering the perfect Thanksgiving! I do not know of many cooks that do not want their ability in the kitchen to shine brightly at this time of the year. We all… MORE

Whether its Thanksgiving or Christmas, we always prepare a ham to go with our dinner. Several years ago, I am not going to say how many, I played in the kitchen until I came up with a ham glaze that is about the best I have had.  It was so well received that the family insists that the ham… MORE

The clock is ticking down to the home-cooks ultimate cook off here in the good old USA.  Thanksgiving!! Believe it or not this is the time of year that I take off work from tomorrow through the end of the month, or, normally the Monday after the holiday. My mother is the matriarch of our… MORE

What a great Sunday it is today! I am going to offer a recipe today that may seem a little weird to some, or it will be intriguing. I am hoping for the latter case in this one.  I stumbled across this from a friend that said he worked somewhere that used a version of this recipe, so I started… MORE

OK, this recipe is a little different, it’s really not that old, and I must admit that I heard a version of it from someone else, but like all cooks, I decided to mess with the recipe and the idea and came up with my own version that I really like, and one that my Family seems to enjoy as well.

Memories are made of these…. I started today the annual switching of most of my bake ware and pots and pans. Moving from the everyday system I have to the holiday version of what I keep around.Is it not odd how those who have cooked for a long time keep certain pots, pans and utensils on hand,… MORE

It is really funny sometimes when you find a recipe that you have been making for quite a while suddenly show up on Facebook, with a few alterations, from someone you do not even know.  Just goes to show that a good recipe or idea will find its way to a good cook, one way or the other.All of… MORE

I do not believe anything can compare to food when it comes to carrying on Family traditions and ethnic history.  Cooking touches us where we live and where we exist as families and as a people. It is often said that a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but I truly believe that the… MORE

While I was growing up, one of the weirdest things about me, so many claimed, was that I seemed to like dishes and things that not most kids would eat.  I love Mince Meat Pie, Brussel Sprouts and Peas!--As a kid that was unheard of.. As sweets went, I was a lot less prone to the REALLY sweet,… MORE

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.
