Ok, I look out the window into that vast expanse of back yard and all I see is that nasty lawn that I have to mow mow Mow MOOOOOOOOOOW all bloody summer long. I also see a dot or two of doggy squat, makes note, gotta pick that up. Oh goody another item I'll have to watch out for when I spark… MORE

If I'd written this blog 4 years and 1 day ago, it would have been about the incredible virtues of having a cigarette after a fine meal. That creamy smoke just capping off the day‚Ķer, the moment! Luckily for me, and I'm sure for even some of you, I quit.   I smoked for 29 years. I… 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!
