Greetings from Mac

Hello everyone. Just looking for a place to talk about cooking, and show off what I cooked.

I've worked in a few kitchens, but I'm untrained. It is one of my greatest joys in life cooking for others.

Here's some cinnamon raisin oatmeal muffins I made this morning:



I'm from Dallas, and mom's from Mississippi...so my cooking style could be classified as "southern comfort food"....."comfort food" is just a euphemism for "gives you diabetes" :)

See you in the kitchen...and get your finger out of that!!! You'll ruin your dinner!

Mac

Please remove your hats, and have a moment of silence for my baguette. It was a little blonde on the top, so I turned on the broiler to brown it up a bit, got distracted...then wondered "Why is there smoke coming from my oven?....Holy crap!!! that's my bread!!!"

You lived a short life, baguette, and I'm sorry no one got to eat you. Enjoy your eternity in bread heaven.

Fortunately I have back up corn bread muffins from last night.

Mac.

Thank you for the warm welcome. I've been looking for a place to talk with other, more experienced cooks/chefs. I'm a computer tech and a general "fix-it" guy...(so I'll be glad to help anyone in that department), I'm also a caretaker for my 85 year old mom...so I do most of the cooking. It gives me great joy.

Sweet...I just noticed there's a "soul food" area. I think that's what I'm classified as...even though my skin is a little pale. :)

Those muffins look delicious. Save one for me.
