About this Cook
I grew up in a farm/ranch and logging area of NW Montana. We raised, hunted for or bartered nearly every we ate. I,m trying to grow up now and be a bit more... (sophisticated??)
My favorite things to cook
My favorites is American food...like Mexican, Italian, Asian, etc. but like the old time family favorites from my childhood too. Cooking is my therapy and I seldom use a written recipe. Creative stuff. I learned early on that there is no such thing as an empty cupboard; with some imagination,some chickens, a garden, a milk cow and a little salt you can set a filling/healthy table. No one ever left our house hungry.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family picnics! We had a huge extended family and twice in my lifetime there have been six generations living. Fourth of July usually brought together at least 20 families (if you didn't start late) you got to sample the specialties of all the best cooks from miles arouund. If any of them used a recipe they never shared:)
My cooking triumphs
My attitude about cooking is the same as that for fishing...."Fishing is always good even when the catching isn't." Of all the family, friends and more than a few strangers in passing I don't remember anyone leaving without a full belly and a smile...Is that a triumph?
My cooking tragedies
Everyone has a flop now and then, things scorch or maybe the beans are still tuff but nothing serious. One time I mistakenly put two table spoons of salt in a fruit dessert. Once when I was hungry for pizza and living without the resources of home (I was in the Military living a dreaded city life)and had no money I used canned tuna for topping; let's just say I won't try that again.
