    And it saddens me to see people cook pizza,

    pasta or some sort of other tasteless food in their homes and call it home cooked. Like.. Have you ever even tasted a meal?

    My first outside grilling experience was kinda

    painful. Being away from my parents for the first time, I can eat what I want , I'm the great chef now. Back then you had to heat up charcoal with lighter fluid. Well these coals weren't heating up quickly enough for the proud young chef so I added some gasoline and had a little...

    I love to cook home cooked meals

    and am always looking to improve things. I've recently thought of purchasing a pressure cooker to try and speed things up. We are a busy family and our days start at 6am and most times aren't getting home until 7pm. That makes it hard to do cook a great meal and not be eating...

    I love home cooked meals,

    I even tried to make one once. My wife told me cook the roast in the oven at325degrees for 3 hours. Men are very good at math so I figured at 600 degrees it would only take an hour, well life in our house changed quickly. It was bad enough that the roast was the size of a dime...

    I have always cooked all my meals from scratch.

    I never buy pre prepared ready meals, or sauces. This is mainly because I like to know what's in the meal I'm eating. If you cook a meal in this way you know how much salt, sugar and other dangerous ingredients have gone into it. Pretty simple really.
