Started cooking a little over five years ago. Once our kids had grown up and moved out I needed to find something my wife and I could do together. Could not interest her in the things I do so I decided to learn to do something that she did. It's been a happy cooperation since.
My favorite things to cook
Live in Louisville, gateway between the North and South. So my interests run from Suthren to Chicago Chic. Outdoor cooking and salads are my best efforts but I'll learn to cook anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Recipes from my grandmother (Two Moms) and my mother in law form the basis for our traditional fare. Both were poor southern country cooks. We used leftovers for a lot of recipes, and we still do.
My cooking triumphs
I'm not sure I have any triumphs... LOL
My cooking tragedies
Think I'll keep these to myself. But I do remember trying peanut butter pork chops that were a disaster.
