Every Dad GourmetGood Food - Good Life
I’m Herman. While I grew up in the southeast with family in Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia, I have lived in Colorado for nearly 15 years with my wife and four children, three of which have grown and left the nest and have children of their own. So my main roles in life are to be a husband, a father, and a grandfather.
Growing up, I was introduced to traditional southern cooking, that tastes fantastic but, in excess, is really quite bad for you. My goal is to share the old recipes in a legacy format, while mixing in some of my new recipes and a few twists on swapping out better ingredients to show how I prepare great meals for my family.
On this site, I hope to share family recipes from my grandmother on my mom’s side, recipes from my mom, who is credited for teaching me how to cook, a few from extended family, and a few from my wife’s family. As a self taught chef, I will also share a few of my own creations that my family loves, and a few that have won awards.
Dad’s get a bad rep for being bad cooks in the kitchen, and I hope this site, and our videos will help you learn to be confident and to cook more. And if you have a recipe to share that your kids love, I hope you will participate in our site.
SPECIAL NOTE: You will also notice a theme in my site that pertains to Life Lessons. As a Dad, I have done some things correctly, and I have learned from mistakes that I have made over the years. My goal is to show you a few of these character traits along the way, and tell a few stories that you can use to mentor your children to be the best that they can be in life.
I cook every single one of the recipes on my site for my own family and only share them when my family smiles!
