Single guy, 35, business owner. Food Channel addict. I cook on weekends and package everything in single portion containers to spread throughout the week. My Foodsaver is one of my favorite kitchen tools.
My favorite things to cook
I get a lot of wild game from my parents. I like virtually all foods. I cook usually based on the ingredients I have available. I don't follow recipes exactly, but use them as guides. I hate wasting food, so I just look at what I have and get creative.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking has always been a staple in my family. Lots of canning too. We always had lots of acres and big gardens and orchards. Lots of fresh or canned fruits and vegetables.
My cooking triumphs
I made some unbelievable chocolate mint meltaways similar to the ones they make at Marshall Fields. OMG to die for... I got a recipe published on here too. :)
My cooking tragedies
I wasn't paying attention and melted my tea pot to my electric stove. See- I can't even boil water !!!
