Hi! I’m Tim!
I live in Arkansas, my adopted state. Technically you could say I was from New York, where I moved from to here, but I’m a Louisville, Kentucky native. My migratory activity was the result of chasing the corporate dream until settling here in western Arkansas. Revisiting my industrial career, I would be remiss if I didn’t say it had a major influence on my culinary tastes. Traveling and dining on an expense account was, without a doubt, the best part of my job. My beautiful, patient and understanding wife has followed me for almost a half century making wherever we are, home. A terrific son, daughter-in-law, two precious grandchildren, and a fur baby complete our immediate family.

How I Started Cooking
I began learning to cook beyond the manly art of grilling, just a few years ago. There were several reasons. My wife, busy with spoiling two grandchildren, retired from the kitchen and it was learn or starve. I also wanted to enjoy foods I had tasted from far-flung places but unavailable locally and I wanted to re-create dishes from favorite restaurants and chefs. Along the way, I discovered how much fun it was entertaining with my new found skills.

Why You Should Try My Recipes
All the recipes here, both food and drink have been personally tested by myself and perfected until ready to share with you, using my friends as guinea pigs, all still living BTW. Some of my recipes are classic favorites, others are off the beaten path, and some exotic. Rest assured, the instructions are in a detailed, step-by-step format that assumes nothing and is in plain language. You don’t have to speak Cordon Bleu and anybody can re-create them in their own kitchen.

The simple answer is – If I can do it, you can too!
