And no, I didn't use the wrong word.   During my childhood, my father used to make turkey soup on Boxing Day. Ok, sometimes it might have been the day after Boxing Day, or maybe even the day after the day after Boxing Day, but I always think of it as Boxing Day turkey soup.… MORE

I did it. I became a supporting member today. It seemed like the right thing to do to celebrate my first attempt at a gang up recipe. I have seen  the  recipes that some of the people on here have created in  past gang ups, and I knew that I wanted to be able to do what they… MORE

About Me
To me, food is love, so when I cook for family and friends I'm showing them how much I care for them. I also love cooking for myself. When people say that they can't see that it is worth the effort to prepare elaborate meals just for one person , I answer that if I am not worth my best efforts, than who else would be?

My favorite things to cook
I like adding new ingredients to old favorite recipes, or trying different ways of cooking them. I enjoy the challenge of trying to improve something that was already pretty good to start with.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father really excelled at making something special from simple and inexpensive food items. I learned most of the cooking basics from him. He particularly loved preparing food for holiday gatherings, and I have continued in his footsteps.
My cooking triumphs
My first gang up recipe. It wasn't the most imaginative meal, but I managed to create something that tasted good!
My cooking tragedies
The infamous broccoli souffle comes to mind. I spent a whole lot of time, money and energy making that thing and it was absolutely vile. It took quite a while before my family would eat broccoli again.
