I love to cook, i learned a lot from my mother. I never saw her use a regular measuring cup. Everthing was some of this or a little of that. After she passed away it took me several tries to get her reciepe for chicken and dumplings. Hers were the best I have ever had even to this day mine are close but hers are stil the best. My dream would be to open my own diner and cook all day long. I have a reciepe for a very hot hot sause I plan to add to this site. A warning it is not for the meek and timed. It took me several batches to get it where I want it. I grew up in a real small town in Michigan and moved to Texas in 1978. Moved here for the heat...Love it hot. I also have developed a super hot wing reciepe, againg not for the meek. Currently I am a furniture salesman for Knight Furniture in Sherman Texas, The company has been in business since 1912. I currently make the birtthday cakes each month for our little birthday club. I love seeing people enjoy my cakes anmd other dishes.
