    I was hoping to find your famous BBQ sauce on your site. Could you pleas e-mail it to me.

  • Victoria Gabrielson (Saturday, June 25 05 11:39 am EDT)

    Hi carl,

    I work at La-Z-Boy with George and he told me about your great ribs. But, your web-site doesn't have the ribs sauce recipe. I would love to try it!!!

  • Karen Klikier Spencer (Wednesday, June 29 05 11:51 am EDT)

    I don't know if Kay will remember me or not, but Boy I remember you. We went to High school together at Vaca. Let me know if she remembers me I would love to talk to her. I have a great friend who also was Diagnosed with MS in 92. Regards, Karen Klikier

  • Edie Thompson Cances (Wednesday, June 29 05 01:22 pm EDT)

    Carl, This site is GREAT, I'm hungry now and I will try the recipes. Thanks for sharing. Regarding neighborhood visits, it seemed that Kay mentioned she did "get around the neighborhood" in her chair, hope she can still do that on occassion. My best to you both. Keep Cookin.
    Love Ya,

    Tried your ribs and kay's beans. The best was the fudge. Fast and easy to make and tastes like the old fashioned fudge.

    Nice web site.

  • Dana (Wednesday, July 06 05 05:02 am EDT)

    Mixed up a batch of Kay's seasoning. It's great on fried eggs and stakes.
    The ribs are out of this world and you weren't kidding about the phillips screwdriver. A #2 phillips works best.

  • JoAnna Lund (Wednesday, July 06 05 06:20 am EDT)

    Great Site! I enjoyed all I saw!!!

  • Robert Murchison (Thursday, July 14 05 07:47 am EDT)

    Wow, I just found out today from Dave about this site. That’s how out of touch I have been I guess. Sorry for that.
    This site is great. Now that I am doing more cooking, it will come in very handy.
    Mom put together a recipe book for us many years ago that have allot of the recipes that you currently have. This will be great to pass on to Eric, my oldest son. He is the only one who has taken an interest in any cooking so far. I will send an e-mail and fill you in on the latest. I have no excuse for not staying in touch other than being busy at work and with the boys. All of you are very important to me and it saddens me to no end that I have not done a better job of keeping in touch. Anyway, love Kay and you.
    Take care.

  • A. Anderson (Wednesday, July 20 05 10:32 am EDT)

    Thank you Carl, your website is very informative and the recipes and pictures make it all look like anyone can prepare meals like you and Kay.

    Great Job, looking forward to see more. Also I preused the Cuisine at Home Magazine website you suggested and signed up for e-recipe/newsletter.

  • Renee Kale (Thursday, July 21 05 05:49 pm EDT)

    Love this website!!! I have tried many of Carl and Kay's recipes and they are great! Easy to follow, fun to make and sure crowd pleasers! Keep up the good work! Thanks, Renee

    Hi Carl,
    I checked out your comments about Microplane and I couldn't have said it better! Thanks for being such a great fan. Let me know when you get your replacement cover and the gift I sent from us here at Microplane. Sherry

  • Jim Hieatt (Thursday, August 04 05 07:05 am EDT)

    What a neat web site. I felt like I had a visit with you. I was sorry to read about Kay. I haven't had time to look at the recipes yet.

  • Bill The Grill Guy (Friday, August 26 05 07:27 am EDT)

    Nice site you have here. It sucks that someone stole one of your tropies. Keep checking in at the BBQ 4 U. Its a great site with some very experienced cooks and some just "want to be's".

  • Jay Caldis (Sunday, September 11 05 05:06 pm EDT)

    Geez, you are always complaining you cannot do computer stuff. I could never do what you have done here. This is great.

  • Darlene (Tuesday, September 13 05 10:11 am EDT)

    Loved your recepes. I will be giving my hubby your Barbeque recipe. I have MS and he does more cooking than me. He makes his barbeque sauce too. I got a good chuckle about wanting to BB sauce at Costco..lol We said that too. LOL

  • Jim Hieatt (Tuesday, September 13 05 02:05 pm EDT)

    I showed Millie your web site and she has copied out several recipes. Thanks.
    Love, Jim

    Chiliquilas!!!! My favorite.

  • Carolyn and Gary Morgan (Wednesday, September 28 05 05:45 pm EDT)

    Carl and Kay,
    First of all we want to thank you for all you have done for Hattie. You were both true friends. I am going to fix your enchaladas tommorrow night. We will be thinking of you!!

  • sue kent (Saturday, October 08 05 06:37 pm EDT)

    We are making plans for the Los Ramblas chile cook off. All neighbors must cook chile, but my hubbie, a honorary member of Los Ramblas, things he just might win. What to you have to say about this?

    Thank you for today. So nice to have Kay and you with us. You touched my heart. Your reading and my having an original copy of the peom will always be remembered.
    Thanks, Susie and Chuck

  • sue kent (Saturday, October 15 05 07:44 pm EDT)

    The chicken from Sam's was a hit!!! Tonight I made Kay's meat loaf. First time my hubbie, said 'hmmm' when he tasted my cooking and then asked for a second helping. The meat loaf was so very good! I have two ham bones in the frig. Any suggestions re. their cooking. Please help!!!! I picture beans and cornbread, but do not know how to get there.

    Chuck and I talked about your making ribs. We would like to buy them for your cooking. Never have we met such a wonderful group of people. And this group loved our Aunt Hattie and are still taking care of us. We would be honored to purchase the ribs and honored to join your wonderful community in a celebration.
    This time we are celebrating you! I will also make Kay's beans.

    The trust is not as easy to settle as I thought. I will be by tomorrow and would like to ask 'the banker' a few questions'. Think the lawyer has me on track, but would like to have your opinion.

    Sadie decided she will learn to play the orgon in honor of A.H. and asked me to tell you she feels terrible. If she should not learn to play, the organ will be return to you. Please let me know tomorrow, is there anything, besides a Christmas ornament you would like. We can talk about it tomorrow if you have not made a decision. I know Aunt Hattie would want you and Kay to have something special.

    I made Carls "Blue Olives" for a neighborhood party. They were wonderful. Hats off to you, Carl. You were right, I should have doubled the batch.

  • ruth (Monday, November 07 05 10:00 am EST)

    I usually prepare thanksgiving dinner for my family of about 20. I found that baking my turkeys(2 12 or 14 #) the day before really saves the oven(i have just one)for the day of. I take all the meat off the carcass, separate the white from the dark meat, put all of it in a baking pan, stick in the fridge,and on the day of, i use a can of chix broth(or use saved turkey drippings)over the meat,cover,and heat up. You have the mess of the carcass cleaned up and out of there. I find this makes for a more leisurly thanksgiving or xmas day!

  • James A. Manone (Friday, November 11 05 03:22 am EST)

I am also thinking about adding Bueberries and Raspberries to the blend of honey and rum, what do you think, Please email back with your thoughts and ideas Mr. Manone

  • Genevieve Voorhees (Wednesday, February 14 07 08:27 am EST)

    What a nice site, Carl! I'm enjoying it a lot.

    I tried your bbq sauce on the ribs today. Oh my...oh my. Very yummy.

  • Debbie (Tuesday, June 05 07 05:52 pm EDT)

    Carl, I made your Sticky Lime Salmon tonight and it was wonderful. I served it with Baked Cheesy Polenta with Swiss Chard, since my garden harvest included chard today. Nice complement of flavors.

  • Genevieve (Monday, June 18 07 12:36 pm EDT)

    Well, the latest Carl/Kay recipe I've tried is a winner too!! Having a ladies' brunch, and made the mini cherry cheesecakes, which look adorable and taste just yummy.

    Thanks, you two!

  • Sharon Middlekauff (Monday, July 02 07 06:26 pm EDT)

  • Heather (Thursday, July 05 07 07:25 am EDT)

    Hey Uncle Carl!

    Having finally discovered how good BBQ is, once we get to an actual place in Texas, I am definitely going to make your sauce, and I might try my hand at the ribs, too!

    Much love!

  • Pat (Friday, July 20 07 06:37 am EDT)


    Thanks for the suggestions you gave me recently on where to look for that elusive recipe for pickled okra. Recently I posted a request for a recipe for that on an AOL message board. Thanks to your suggestions, I found a couple of recipes to give to my mother-in-law. I'm adding your website to my "favorite places"! Thanks again.

  • Genevieve (Tuesday, July 31 07 12:22 pm EDT)

    Thinking of you...and thanking you again Carl, as I make still another batch of broccoli salad for the family to enjoy!! We just love it!

I look forward to trying the many great recipes that I have read today! I am sure that there are many more to come!

  • Don Barkhurst (Sunday, September 23 07 06:27 am EDT)


    I'm glad I had the chance to sit and talk with you at the reunion. I enjoy visiting your website and will have to try some of the recipes.


  • Bill Thielbahr (Wednesday, October 10 07 08:38 am EDT)

    I tried CarlDeCook's BBQ sauce on baby back spareribs, cooked over my gas-fired BBQ. I followed Carl's instructions regarding the preparation of the ribs and the application of the sauce. In my 50+ years of eating spareribs, I have never experienced such a wonderful taste. It will now be the only way to cook my spareribs and the only sauce to use. I have since used the BBQ sauce on BBQed chicken and found it to also add an unbeatable flavor.

  • Michele Wood (Sunday, December 09 07 07:24 am EST)

    Hello Carl! Hello Kay!

    It's me, I used to live down the street when I was Michele Lamprecht! Funny how I found Carl's website - I've been thinking about Kay a lot recently, and about our short visit when I was in California 2 years ago. I went online to see if I could find your mailing address and came across Carl's cooking site.

    I love this - and even more, I love that I'm seeing some of Kay's recipes that I STILL have on food-splattered recipe cards from the Pixie Play School days. My favorites are still Kay's vegetable beef soup and taco salad. Oh and her bread pudding! Mmmm.

    I love the pictures you've posted on your site. Kay looks just as I remember her from the days when I lived in Concord, and so does Carl - just a bit grayer. You both look so happy in the pictures. Carl, it shows that you do love to cook!

    Wishing you both the happiest of holidays.


  • Edie Thompson Cances (Thursday, December 13 07 12:31 pm EST)

  • Sharon (Sunday, January 27 08 05:47 pm EST)

    Tried your BBQ sauce on ribs tonight, very good. Also made your mac & cheese. Neighbor brought over home made bread just out of over, a glass of wine and a great meal!

  • Dana Bowers (Thursday, January 31 08 10:11 am EST)

    Your rib sauce is as good, if not better, than Poor Red's original used to be, in their glory days (long passed).
    Kay's seasoning is great with stake and eggs.

  • Chris Urban (Monday, May 12 08 04:29 pm EDT)

    Great site, Carl! I like the tip about Uncle Phaedrus - I'll have to remember to look him up next time I need a recipe. We also love QVC too!

    My dearest Carl. I read your section on Kay's Multiple Sclerosis and I must say you are both pillars of strength. I also have MS. My first attack came when I was about 26 or 28 years old. I am now 53 and am still walking. I am currently on Rebif and have been for the last 4 years with very little problems. Good news though that you may want to investigate. The FDA has just released a new oral medication (Fingolimod) for the treatment of MS. My doctor and I are going to discuss switching over to this. The chemical compound is the same as Rebif-beta interferon 1a. Just think, no more shots! I have been doing research on the drug and there is a good possibility it may also aid in repairing damage to myelin. There are some safety issues I am concerned with which I will discuss with my neurologist this week. I sincerely hope you will look into this drug. You can get info from the National MS Society website. I will keep both you and Kay in my prayers for her continued improvement and tell her I have found that attitude is 99% of this battle. I wish you both my best as I know what you are both going through. By the way, I love your recipes & can't wait to try some of the crock pot items.
    Take care.

    This is Hsttie's niece, Susie. I think of you and Kay so very often, especially when I get on your site to search for a recipe. They are always so very good and make me love cooking!

    My daughter, Stephanie Morano, gave me your site tonight (6/1)
    I think it is great and I am looking forward to using many of your listings. I too graduated from high school in 1957, Abraham Lincoln in SF. I spent my entire career in the title insurance and escrow business.
