Chuck steaks were on sale this past week at the grocery. These particular ones were named "chuck tender steaks" and they looked a lot like filet mignon. They were nearly the same price as ground beef, and so, they got my attention. I bought a package, then wondered if I'd made a mistake.… MORE

From The Blog:  Playing With My Food
About this Cook
I have been cooking most of my life. I was a professional cooking instructor, 2005-2010. I live alone, currently but have cooked for over 200 people 5 days a week, for 5 years. I am now a vocational business instructor.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort foods are my favorite. I love to cook things that make people smile and feel warm inside.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Basic southern cooking, with some ethnic items tossed in. My fatheris the big cook in the family and (still) loves trying new things.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving dinner... a challenge to coordinate, with many bad events in the past. 2007 was finally a complete success! Timing is everything!
My cooking tragedies
... Thanksgiving dinners, again... seems something is usually underdone, overdone, undone... It's almost like I have some kind of mental block when it comes to Thanksgiving.

Black-Eyed Peas With Collard Greens and Turnips
Okay, I feel that I made this dish but i did change some things. I used canned black-eyed peas instead of dried, frozen greens instead of fresh, and grape tomatoes instead of the regular sized ones. I also used potatoes instead of turnips because I had no turnips. (I used what I had in the house.) This is really a good recipe! I followed your instructions except for the dried bean part. The vinaigrette dressing added just the right sweet and acid for the greens. I did add a little red pepper to mine because I like red pepper in greens but this was a super recipe without it! By the way, using the canned peas, my dish was done in about 20 minutes.

Pulled Pork Hash
I love hashes of all varieties and this is a really good idea! I found it very appealing to my hash love and a good way to change up pulled pork leftovers. My pulled pork was from a picnic roast that I had used to make some posole. I was relieved to find something besides BBQ to use up the meat I had left. I like spicy foods, so I did add a little more cayenne. Serving this with a nice over-easy or soft poached egg is just perfect. I will make this again.

Sweet Marie Bars
I found the bars to be VERY sweet. I can only take one small piece at a time... these should last a while. They are very good. The icing I found to be VERY lacking. used about 4 TBSP cocoa powder to get the level of chocolate flavor I wanted for these super sweet bars. I am keeping the recipe, but next time I'll probably try a different cereal and possibly add nuts.
