I am originally from Caldwell N.J. and am a Viet Nam veteran. I like work with charities helping Veterans.
In 1991 I, we, moved to a small town just outside of Austin Texas. This is where my passion for cooking started, and it has continued to this day.
I did not start writing until after we moved to Tequesta Florida. I wrote "Just Plain Yummy" because I thought it was needed. The world can always use one more cookbook, and this one will have you laughing at the stories I included
I loved to watch Chef Graham Kerr (Galloping Gourmet) on TV, and he was kind enough to send me a personal note to include with a recipe of his that I used.
I have a few other hobbies but they are too many to list here, but you might see some of my woodworking skills at chef-jim.com
This book targets the person that wants to learn how to cook. But, it is also for everyone else because there are 50 recipes, 49 of which are good. the last one is the final Exam. You should laugh your way through the book reading my short stories of how some of these recipes got here.
