Married 37 years with 3 adult children and 10 grandchildren.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy Baking Pies and Breads. My specialty is Berry Pies and Cream Pies. I also make a mean Sweet Honey Wheat Bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm continuing the great tradition my Grandfather implemented back in the 50's and 60's by baking all kinds of treats to enjoy in his kitchen whenever I came over to visit.
My cooking triumphs
I make the best Blackberry/Marionberry pie you've ever eaten.
My cooking tragedies
My first two cream pie creations weren't cooked on the stove long enough and I didn't use enough starch to thicken the filling. They looked good on the Thanksgkiving table but the fillings never set and they were runny and uneatable. That just gave me the motivation to learn and improve. Now I'm called the Pie Master by my family.
