About this Cook
went from 147 lbs to 212 lbs within a year of my cooking and loving it. in bare feet 6' depending standing or sitting. actually two feet last time I saw 6' was when 3 people were without shoes.
My favorite things to cook
haluski, spaghetti, roasted chicken /turkey and tur-duc-ken (duck inside chicken, chicken inside turkey) tur-duc-ken. my favorite snack is peanut butter and grape jelly
My favorite family cooking traditions
italian rolled meatballs with stuffed mozzarella and provolone cheese• feather weight french toast with vanilla extract in the mixture and topped off with confection sugar with center topped with cherry covered with maple syrup.
My cooking triumphs
mother in-laws (almost) raosted rigatoni with sword pipes and rigatoni pasta with ground beef and italian hot sausage in the red italian tomato sauce for the reception.
My cooking tragedies
burnt oatmeal kitchen filled with smoke that's when I wanted to be a cook. after I healed from the beating. fell asleep while roasting turkey, woke up with alarms and billows of smoke. didn't get homeless just didn't have turkey for dinner.

Buttermilk Pancakes II
absolutely a great dish and a treat to add to those pancakes is a ½ tsp. vanilla extract and orange zest to the mix and a dusting of powdered sugar. with a cherry on top if desired. I helped my ma' 50 some years ago making pancakes, flap-jacks etc; this is an original recipe frittella in Italian. :)
