Easy Recipes To Make

I enjoy cooking! Before being put on the disabled list due heart problems, I would enter an annual Chili Cook-off at the Presbyterian Urban Mission. I managed to take away a few awards and to this day have a chili recipe that might be worthy of taking to the International Chili society cook-off to win there. That is a completely different type of competition. I have cooked for my church doing a Bean dinner one year to conclude the stewardship campaign; I have cooked turkeys twice for our annual Thanksgiving Dinner the Sunday before Thanksgiving. I worked with the youth group in the 1990’s to do a fund-raiser for their annual mission trip. We took orders from the congregation for submarine sandwiches to have ready on Super Bowl Sunday. Of course, that was when the Super Bowl was still around the last week of January. The youth actually looked forward to it every year (and so did the congregation). We were selling $5.00 foot-longs long before Subway started. I have cooked for the Men’s’ Breakfast on the Third Saturday of the month, and recently I requested and was given permission to restart the first Sunday Breakfast every month. This is beginning to sound as if it is all about me. Let me clarify that I am but one of many members that love to cook for the church. I do not care which denomination You belong to, having a meal together as a congregation is part of worshiping together as a family. It is also a good way to reach out to the community around the church to bring them into that warm family environment, to share your faith with them. Whenever we would have significant leftovers, we have taken them to one of the shelters in the area.

Enough of the “Why” I like to cook and share with others. Many friends have asked me for my recipes to different dishes and I have always said, “yes I will share them”. I never figured out how the best way to do this until last Sunday, I was being asked for a specific cake recipe and I realized that having started this site as “a daily dose of common sense”, what better way to share with everyone some of my favorite recipes. Let me first state that most of these come from so great sources such as the Chef’s on The Food Network, some passed down in the family and others were done as an experiment to explore the subtle differences in the use of spices to enhance the enjoyment of devouring a good chili or salsa. As is the disclaimer for this site “treat this as a buffet, take what you like, and leave what you do not care for”. As always, I will accept comments as well as any different ideas. So let us begin I will categorize each recipe in the group it belongs. Bon Appétit…

I am a child of God. I may not be perfect, I have many faults, but who doesn't. I served in the US Navy as a Hospital Corpsman and am still proud of my country. I continued in the medical field when I was Honorably Discharged and have worked as a Nurse until I could no longer practice in 2010 due to health reasons. In 1987, I married my lovely wife Naomi and in 1997, God blessed us with a Son. Both are what I have tried to provide for and make sure that they have everything they need. I have done many other things in my life to make money on the side, but I never did learn the basic and most important steps of being a true Entrepreneur. I believe myself to be an Entrepreneur and know I have discovered the secret to success. It is not overnight and not a "get rich quick" deal. The truth is there is no "get rich quick". I have started on the path to true freedom, if this interest you come join me and we will travel the path to success together.
