From deep within the bowels of The Mad Houstonian Broadcasting Network Compound and Think Tank, in Houston, TX., Chef Kiril says welcome to the latest Edition of Cooking Like Mad (That's as in me, the Mad Houstonian!)!
6 years ago, last week, I wrote the following in the intro to this ongoing series...
"By age 16 I learned to fix my own scrambled eggs, and sausage, or bacon, for breakfast, my 1st successful efforts in the kitchen!
3 eggs, spiced with salt and pepper to my liking, 6 Farmer John Links, or bacon, made into 3 breakfast sandwiches on toast, to satisfy the hunger of a growing teen, and later young bachelor, well into his 30's.
I learned to cook my own hamburgers, and hot dogs, mac and cheese, hash browns, fried chicken, and steaks, and other meats in the pan, brew a pot of coffee, and some other simple things, long since forgotten in the years after the death of my Mother.
Of course I also became expert at putting together peanut butter sandwiches, tuna sandwiches, various lunch meat sandwiches and assorted other delicacies essential for a bachelors very survival."
