Ok, I know we all like to strut about and talk about how we eat the whole grain this and bean sprout that, all without the use of hydrogenated fat. However, I confess, that from time to to time, I like to dive head first into that most lurid of cuisines, fast food. I'm talkin Pizza Hut,… MORE

I probably spelled the title wrong or perhaps it's just a matter of staggeringly bad punctuation but I'm about as French as a Taco, so there ya go. I live in a really small town, a resort community that basically folds up into itself and hibernates every winter. One of the many downsides… MORE

About Me
Let's see, in keeping it to a subject, at age 22 I had a filet doused in Bernaise sauce aboard a train. That was it, I was hooked on fine food. Living in a small town necessitates learning to cook well to maintain that stellar menu.
My favorite things to cook
Oh man, only a thousand characters? My favorite things to cook are items that make YOU happy. I'll try anything and thus far it would be far easier to list those things I don't like than those I do. So far, I hate Cilantro and I'm allergic to green chiles. It's a short list.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas. I like everything about that meal and every single year I aim to improve.
My cooking triumphs
Every smile, every gasp of delight, every accolade, such sweet victory!
My cooking tragedies
A Cioppino recipe I found here. I served it as part of one of those Christmas dinners and the cod was a poor choice. It was terrible, ghastly fishy taste. I've since learned a thing or two about freshness in fish. Prior to that, hmm perhaps when I was 10, I made a spice cake that called for whole cloves....hey, that's what it said on the outside of the bottle, whole cloves....
