Some fruit will escape when you roll. It'll be okay, DON'T PANIC.

My father is retired.  He's always been a man who hated to be sitting around.  If he wasn't moving or working, then there was a good chance he was asleep.  So, when he retired, the first 6 months or so were murder on my mother.  He drove her nuts having 'nothing to… MORE

So, there's a small Mom-and-Pop Italian restaurant here in town, and they have a 'house' dish that I love- their House Chicken. It is a rather uninspired name but is so good! It is a grilled (unbreaded) boneless chicken breast, on a bed of angel hair spaghetti, with a lemony sauce containing… MORE

About Me
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.
