Love the outdoors. Enjoy spending time in the kitchen experimenting with a basic recipe and then turning it into my own.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, stews, chowders, lasgana, omlette's and multi-layer sandwiches.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking turkey, canning carrots and pickles, making Mom's pancakes, Grandma's Apple Pie, my own style of pumpkin pie (either real pumpkin or cheesecake w/graham wafer crust).
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make Turkey soup, Corn Chowder, stews, apple pie's and lasagna.
My cooking tragedies
Super-watery spaghetti sauce, burnt chowder, watery Shepard's Pie, turkey gravy with WAA-AY too much flour (actually, it was nothing but flour w/what appeared to be brown colouring.
