A frequent question that at least used to be heard at the grocery store was "Paper or plastic?". Personally, I hate plastic bags. What do you do with them after you get them home? I have a 50# dog food bag I use to collect all of the grocery bags and the
thing is filled up to the brim now…
I am a classically trained chef (Culinary Institute of America 1991), but I am not in the business anymore. My big family gets to enjoy the fruits of my knowledge. We have raised our own pigs and chickens and have planted a garden for our own veggies. As the father of 7 living children, we stay busy all the time and I am proud to say that there is not a fussy eater amongst us. I stay away from processed foods and have been cooking more and more according to the Nourishing Traditions cookbook and the Weston A. Price Foundation principles- more "live" foods. I am the "go to" guy for food questions among my friends. Read my blog at http://chefcheapo.blogspot.com/
My favorite things to cook
Southern Italian is my favorite, but I love to try all new things and foods from different places.
My favorite family cooking traditions
homemade yogurt, pickles, hummus and kid friendly snacks
My cooking tragedies
For all the great things I make, sometimes the simplest things can become a mess, like just trying to toast croutons. I am not sure how many batches I have had to feed the chickens over the years.
