About this Cook
I had to take an early retirement in 2004. I am now a "Stay at Home Grandpa" to my 8 grandchildren. I was born in Tennessee where comfort food is the norm. I didn't take much interest in cooking most of my life but was always curious. Now I have the time to explore and experiment. All Recipes has been a godsend for me. I really enjoy the reviews as it helps me better determine what recipes to prepare.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm still working on this one.
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate Cheesecake II. I never had chocolate cheesecake until my brother requested one. This was beyond delicious! He compared it to a local trendy restaurant that he loves and "said" he liked mine better. Maybe he was just being nice, but ours didn't last long.
My cooking tragedies
Many of my attempts have been tragedies or nearly tragic. I'm getting better though. I haven't sent anyone to the hospital yet!

Quick Artichoke Pasta Salad
Delicious!!! I added 1/4 cup Italian Dressing as it was a little on the dry side. Everyone loved it and came back for seconds. Thank you for sharing.

Becca's Bruschetta
Delicious! I made this to accompany a light dish for supper. The whole family loved it. I drained some of the liquid before topping bread. It came out perfect. Thank you for sharing.

Peanut Butter Cups
These were just so-so. The semi-sweet chocolate didn't taste right. If this was supposed to be a clone recipe, it missed the mark. Next time I will use milk chocolate.
