"I've been a very good cook for 52 years"

I'm happy and content on this picture, pretty much, how I am most of the time.

"I've been a very good cook for 52 years"

To be honest my cooking experience started when I was seven years old.  The food in the house was about non- existing , except for a large sweet potatoe and some flour. My mother had gone to town to get grocery.  My dad and I had the younger siblings and the kids were hungry. with my dads help, I cooked  the sweet potatoe, fry bread adn even made gravy.

I guess the gravy was the closet thing to meat, that we had in the house so that was what did. I fed all of the children, so they were happy and content, which made me happy and content. From that day forward I had a zeal for cooking, and wanting to learn how to cook good tasting, and good looking food.

I have always believed that food should look as good as it taste. I also  think we should pray over the food the we prepare, while we're cooking it.  When I cook my food ,I cook it with a lot of love. over the years, I learned how to go out and eat others food and come back home, and duplicatio the process without the recipe

I want you to know that 98% of the time, I do a good job of duplicating recipes by only trying thr food once.This act of  duplicating food recipes,  is what I call a gift; because everyone can't do it. I love to cook, I love to eat, but most of all, I love to cook for others so they can eat and enjoy good homemade foods.  I love cooking for my family, they love eating and enjoying meals that I prepare for them.

I once cooked  for short period of  time  for the police department , cooking for the inmates, but after the , that I was there, and the inmates wanted seconds, it does my heart good to see people eat and enjoy the meal that they are eating.  I make up my own recipes by trying different things in the kitchen and the outcome is always favorable for me.

cooking is just one of my many talents, that I think I do very well and it's something that I love to do, because it's a big part of me and the person that I am.

      Great hub! I think good cooking fuels not just the stomach, but the soul as well.

      A real cook doesn't have to measure everything, and doesn't need a cookbook - this would be you. And the people who really understand the need for and the value of nutritious homemade food.

      Nice hub!

      Cooking is an art and a gift as well. You are right, not everybody has it. 'Wish you were my neighbor, and i'll be at your house everyday! Nice to know your expertise!
