Welcome. Share, question, enjoi.
Thank you . I am a decent cook but there are big holes in my "education". Beings that I learned about everything off of TV. Starting with Graham Kerr and Julia Childs on KPBS.... Back when there were only eight or so channels on TV.
I had to learn out of self defense. Mom could burn the same pot of beans twice. So my first attempt at cooking was when I was about sixteen. Armed with images from Graham Kerr I Bought a Rabbit in the grocery store... Boned it and stuffed it and trussed it and cooked it. Dad raved Mom wouldnt touch it till I removed two legs. Long story.
Anyway I take after dad When mom said there was nothing to eat in the house.... He would open the refrigerator and start pulling things out. By the time he was done every pot in the house would be used but dinner was soo good there were no leftovers.
Our background is all Southern fried.... I make a mean hoecake.... not sayin much because they are dead simple.
First time I made prime rib it came out perfect... again... simple.
But I cant seem to get good food to come out of a crockpot.... Even beans... ON the stove I got it....
