The Dirty Drip Pan-A Collection of my own Unique Recipes

As I’ve stated before, when I was seven years old, those around me thought I would be a chef or a policeman.

Well I definitely cannot be a policeman because of my disability.

I cannot really be a chef either, because most chefs don’t make enough money nor do they have enough benefits to cover my necessary medical expenses.

So, because of that, I’m just an amateur blogger.


I have been cooking since my mid to late twenties.

Since the age of thirty-one I have lived by myself, so I needed to tweak my cooking abilities. I was a Southern Baptist from the ages of twenty-two to thirty-two and Lord knows just about every Southern Baptist loves to cook and especially loves to eat.

An ongoing joke of mine is that if I ever came into a lot of money, I would open a very casual restaurant in New Orleans and call it “The Dirty Drip Pan.” I don’t know if it should be in The French Quarter or Uptown, but it would serve down home cooking that the rich and elite could thoroughly enjoy and appreciate but at prices that the working class and even the working poor could afford.

I have no culinary arts degree whatsoever.

Instead, I am mostly self taught with a little bit of help and tips from my family members.

Usually, I find a recipe online or combine several recipes I find online and tweak them to my liking. Many times I add my own twist.

The background of my cooking influence is Cajun, Creole/Caribbean, Southern United States, a little hint of Soul and an even slighter hint of Midwestern United States.

Without further ado, here are the links to my recipes.
