Hey everyone, I'm a guy whose a hobby cook who likes to experiment and try to make unique things. I do enjoy making the standard southern dishes that everyone around here is used to, but I really enjoy trying new stuff (new for me and my family anyway). I'm hoping to learn some new and interesting things on this site as well as improve my techniques. I'd like to make my food look more attractive and professional. It's a little hard for me to practice, because my family are big eaters (I fed 15 people at thanksgiving), so I'm more comfortable cooking in bulk than making small portioned meals. And I guess my secret shame is being southern and having zero ability to make biscuits. I've tried multiple times. I've got relatives who make really good biscuits and I've had them walk me through it and check my work. Theirs are nice and fluffy and my are flat and hard. Hope that improves, because I keep trying occasionally.
