The recipe I offer today, I am not sure it originated in the Ozarks.   My mother called it “Texas Hash” and that is what I am going to go with.  She lived in Houston for a number of years so I suppose the recipe could have actually come from Texas, but I am not going to promise!  We were… MORE

It is funny what some of us consider comfort food.  Sometimes it can be a dessert, a main dish, or even a whole meal with certain dishes. My mother was a country cook, plain and simple. But as I have traveled and worked and experienced foods from around the world, I look back and realize that… 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.
