I do, however, admire and have a lot of respect for those who are good cooks...they didn't get there overnight! I think it takes a lot of patience to be a good cook...a lot of trial and error...do it over and over again...until the dish is perfect...m-m-m-m-maybe these are a few good reasons why I'm not a good cook...
You know the old saying...
"You are what you eat...so try to avoid fruits and nuts!" Jim Davis
One day, I asked my ex-wife to teach me to cook, and I wanted to learn how to make a pot of green chile. She stood right there, as I did everything she told me to do. When the chile had finished cooking, I tasted it, and it tasted like hell. Why does your chile taste so good, and I do the same thing you do...and my chile tastes like hell? S-c-r-e-a-m!

At the age of 65 in 2010, I've been in, what is known as the kitchen a time or two, so I'll try to educate the reader on what I have learned over the years. Some of it may be technical in nature, so try to keep up.
