I'm old, 62, a little heavier than I would like though most would disagree. I'm working with dog guide #5, going to The Seeing Eye For #6 this year. I am Happily single and could look after anyone as well as they could me. I'm a humanist, not a feminist.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking stews, cassaroles, Soups, Chilis, chops, lazagna, chicken cordon bleu, cheesecake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Xmas as a kid was best, mom made so much food!!! Scottish shortbread, light & dark fruitcake, Xmas cookies, Rumballs, Cabbage rolls, Perogies, turkey, bread pudding--and I was still a skinny kid.
My cooking triumphs
my first lazagna was most excellent; made it uswing a toaster oven recipe almost 25 years ago.
My cooking tragedies
I once made a chocolate cake which came out looking like one of those cork boards beginner swimmer's used. The texture of stale spunge toffee, the flavour of sawdust.
