    Sorry, I'm not very good in recipes or following them, I tend to wing them as I go along. I have various cookbooks from various cuisines that was given to me but just used them to get inspirations. :D

    My wife and I love all kinds of cuisines and I do love kitchen experiments. :cool:

    Jerry,

    L:DL! I am fortunate to come from a family of awesome home cooks. Growing up, I was always the victim, I mean taster of whoever is cooking in our kitchen. :cool:

    My Dad was a cook in the Navy and when he retired, he cooked for his Admiral.

    I understand. I cook the same way. Im a PITA when it comes to giving recipes.....they usually involve the phrase "add xxxx until it tastes right"
