Perhaps it should be titled, The Internet Foolies. Ok, I'm 3 for 3. A few months ago, I downloaded a pool game onto my Iphone and I'm somewhat addicted to it. The only problem with the game is that it's immensely popular and a consequence of that is that the games server overloads… MORE

I was asked by AR to delete my shilling references from my Mazolaoids blog. I've done so. I didn't get back to this til a couple of days ago, and was really surprised at the hullaballoo this blog caused. In a way I'm delighted because my primary goal was to just get some of the Allstars to… MORE

I have been asked by Allrecipes to amend this blog so that it doesn't involve name calling. I've been on here for close to three years now and I've watched the changes come and... come. The Allrecipes Allstars setup was something I viewed with some skepticism right from the get go. It seemed… MORE

Hi everyone. Ye old rare and feisty at your service once again. I'm still working far afield from my home but hope to remedy that soon by making my place of work, home! Meanwhile, apple pie. Years back when it was my habit to tackle different genres of cooking, I undertook to find the perfect… 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
My Christmas dinner. Usually in December, sometimes early January. I've a waiting list of people who wish to be invited. Alas, I've only a service for 10. We're talking silver, Noritake, crystal stemware, crisp linens, fine wines paired appropriately and a menu that's usually derived from a theme.
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....
