About this Cook
I started off cooking with my step-dad since I was about 10 years old. Growing up in Louisiana we ate gumbo and crawfish. But my step-dad was military so he cooked a large variety of things. I love to cook and I enjoy when my family can eat at home instead of consuming fast foods. I am not an expert cook, hopefully with more and more practice I will be able to teach my grandkids.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking anything from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I hope to be able to start traditions with my kids one day. I always thought it would be a good idea for everyone to have a day each week where I cook and serve their favorite meal.
My cooking triumphs
I can finally cook a awesome pot of greens. Still working on the gumbo though.
My cooking tragedies
Most of my cooking mishaps have occured when I tried what I like to call instant recipes. I hate using those frozen vacuum sealed peices of fish. Its like roulette you could end up with water logged fish after defrosting.

Caramelized Baked Chicken
These were so good. I am glad I doubled the sauce. I followed another persons review and put everything in a pot on the stove adding 2T of cornstarch and brought it to a boil. I lightly seasoned my wings and then poured the thickened mixture on, covered and baked 45 minutes. Then I baked 15 more minutes uncovered basting every 5 with sauce. Wow. Thanks for a delicious recipe.

Goulash Supreme
Seasoned the meat first. Didnt have stewed tomatoes or tomato paste. So I used two cans of tomato sauce and a big can of diced tomatoes. I cut back on the chili powder, didnt want it to spicy for the children. I did par boil the macaroni for 5 minutes. I added about a cup of water and let it all simmer. It came out looking kind of like watery hamburger helper. The taste was great with creamed corn. Thanks
