Welcome to COG Radio
Tuesday May 4, 2010
Do you live in the past, now or future? Want a great recipe for your can of Quail Eggs? Are you into Ballroom Dancing? Do you have more than 8 Mama’s? Join TJ and international author, famed speaker Johnny Tan, as Johnny shares excerpts from his book “From My Mama’s Kitchen.” In honor of Mother’s Day, listen and see if you, as a COG, can relate to Johnny’s wisdom and advice. Take a listen and then share some of your mother’s wisdom in the comment section.
In addition to being a bonafide Cool Old Guy, Johnny Tan is an author, Internet talk show host, speaker and ballroom dancer. Johnny is a graduate of LSU and lives in the great state of Texas. To learn more about Johnny or purchase his book, visit http://FromMyMamasKitchen.com

Here’s the deal…we want to create a “COG Cookbook” that is packed with recipes Cool Old Guys love and want to share with other Cool Old Guys.
The catagories thus far are: Main Courses (Entries), Desserts, Snacks, BBQ, Sides, Appetizers, Soups, Salads, Beverages
…but you can send us anything you think other COG’s would find enjoyable.
Just like submitting any article, send them to email@example.com in a Word.doc and feel free to include a picture, but it’s certainly not necessary.
NOTE: If you know a COG that isn’t an official member but a darn good cook…he can send along his favorite recipe too.

*That means any 100% Blue Agave Tequila. You can pick a Blanco, or “Silver”, that’s not aged, a “Reposado” that’s aged at least 60 days to a year or an “Añejo” that’s aged over a year. The “mas joven”, i.e. younger the Tequila, the more raw the flavor. I use mostly Repsado Tequilas in my Margaritas. I like some Silvers too. Here’s a quick list: Herradura, El Tesoro, El Jimador and Chinaco. These are my favorites but Continue Reading
