MEN WHO COOK

SURVIVAL SKILLS 101

I am a survivor.

I acquired many skills from my family.
My moms roots are from the South
and my Dad has west indian roots
but unfortunately he had no direct ties what so ever to those roots.

I learned how to cook from my parents mostly
then of course watching as well as helping my grandmother and aunts
around the house, particularly on those Sundays. Man I miss those Sundays.

I also have to give credit to the many women who have come into my life
and shared many different recipes from their vast backgrounds
as well as methods of cooking.

I have learned that there are many folks WHO DON’T COOK AT ALL.
“My Mamma never Taught me how to cook”-Annette Peacock
My family didn’t have a whole lot of money
but my parents made sure my brothers and I ate a hot meal every night.

Fast food was very rare. Not to much Mickey D’s and only a few pizza parties
even though we all enjoyed them so much…

When my kids were born
I tried to give them the same lessons I got and the importance of being able
to COOK FOR SELF.

And to be able to take care of the family.
I have made it a project to cook with my children.G.I. cooking 101
Its fun and they are extremely helpful and they are fast learners…they inspire me.

I have to admit I am sort of a Food Network fanatic
even though they cook a lot stuff I wouldn’t eat….at least no now…
lol.
I do respect their grind…it’s crazy.

I dream of one day having a lil’ family spot
with my moms, my brothers and of course my lil’ homies.
Maybe even have them run the spot….yeah the youth run the restaurant
and the elders run the card game in the back…haha.

So now I be experimenting more
especially in these tough times
got to be more creative…haha

Besides fast food ain’t for the kid..
or the kids for that matter…THAT STUFF CAN KILL YOU
[“SuperSize Me”]
I look to expand my menu
sometimes I be shocking myself…haha
GST/ food 3GST/ food 5
but I’m getting better

and I salute all
MEN WHO COOK

stay tuned for more……

    That’s a blessing that your kids love to build in a new, exciting way with you! So many times men take for granted that just spending time/being there with your kids is enough for your kids…they are always trying to make excuses “i don’t have money, i have nothing to do…” and something as simple as cooking dinner brings you and your kids enjoyment, is a cheap thing to do, and shows your boys you love them.
    it’s the simple things…this blog made me smile. your sons are handsome (with face paint and all).

    I know you are making some lady very happy with your cooking skills. and look at u stepping ur blog game up.

  • yea
    I give thanx
    its a great way for us to bond
    and its a great way for me to teach them something useful
    unfortunately I don’t get to see them as much as I would like so every moment counts
    I give thanx
    the kids in the 1st pic are my nephews

    he is great
    they all are

    Yes yes yes. That’s what’s up, home cooked meals and the blessings of passing that one to
    Your seeds. Everything you said bro is the true facts. The best place to be is in the control room lending a hand
    And learning a gem at the same time,that’s how I learned. To this day I take a tip or two from wifey in the kitchen.
    Mom dukes would always explain that might not be a women by your side! So you must know
    How to hold it down for self in the kitchen. One of my peeps has a great idea for food network.
    “Soul Food Iron chef” yo on the real ratings would go out the roof with that one.
    I could see the asian cat liftin the top on the table yellin ” todays ingrediant is SWEET YAMMMMMS”
    LMAO. TONE456

    im feeling you steele, i got tired of poisoning myself with takeaway food a few years back and taught myself to cook.
    i recomend you try this dish out.
    swiss chicken: fry some onions garlic mushrooms and parma ham (optional), add some diced chicken and few glugs of cheap wine, simmer for 15 then add cream and a few handfulls of grated cheese and boom.
    its good with pasta or potatos and veg.
    salute

  • yo that’s whats really Hodd. One day we need to link up and make some afro-latino-carribean food or even just mix it up, you make the main dish like some curry chicken or goat, and then I’ll make like platanos menudos or tostones, some yellow rice and shrimp, lima beans and other veggies. cooking us very imporatnt when it comes to Survival Skills, hence class A rations (military talk). In my unit over here Lee Majorz does most of the cooking, he’s an exquiste chef himself aswell…and when he cooks we all know at the barrecks/home base to STAY out the kitchen until it’s time for doin dishes and kitchen detail shortly after we all break bread lol My boy Hasani can make a mean sqegeti dish, I mostly just eat lol but we all know that every unit is most effencient when self contained and cooking skills is a must, because soldiers have to eat so we might aswell eat good.

    Also Planting ang harvest your own food in a small garden on location is vital aswell to survival skills and nothing bets a hot plate with freshly picked veggies to accompany each meal.

    I’m glad you shared this , this is what’s REALLY hood. if everything was to shut down in the streets only REAL soldiers such as yourself will have the know how to make the best out of a crisis situation or time of need.

    Even a kung fu master, puts his philosophies and practice into every aspect of his everyday life including food preperation.

    Big Ups to the General, I Salute U Proudly!

    I remember a long time ago..that u put a recipe in the Source…do u still cook that one…Love u Steele..

  • I am glad to see that the food industry has gone far at what is suprese, many people use to ask me why did I want to be a chef I always tell them passion. I have traveled the golbe cooking owning my own catering business , culinary instructor for the art institute, and has worked for top chefs. Cooking is theraputic. I know we eat to live & live to eat. Food is sexy, and to the inspiring chef out there who wants to get into the business, remeber it’s long hours, commitment, and sacrfices. It pays off at the end

  • Its definitely theraputic
    to say the least
    and it also intrigues me the things you can do with food
    I would love to go to school and learn some real tips
    I salute you bro!
    give thanx

  • I’m actually pretty new
    and I just try different things
    but I started with finding a template
    free templates on google
    and I had a guy who knew certain codes to help as well as far with graphics
    but as u can see I kept it basic
    I will step it up in the near future

    good luck with yours
