My greatest role in life is being Grandpa to my grandchildren and Pops to my kids. They are my true treasures in this life.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes hence my addiction to this website. While only cooking for two, I try to look for ways to make a recipe a bit healthier and I very rarely use any added salt. I personally adore kielbasa and really enjoy adding pasta to my meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to find and make old family recipes. I particularly love old baking recipes when I know where and who they came from. It's a way of keeping family memories fresh and keeping our loved ones close.
My cooking triumphs
Sharing my old family recipe for rhubarb cake. It's a terrific cake that's better the day after. People who don't like rhubarb will still love this cake.
My cooking tragedies
Most of my tragedies circle around oatmeal. I like it undercooked so a spoon will stand up in it. My family laughs when they recall my blue blueberry oatmeal. What some people call a tragedy can be another's triumph!
