My favorite things to cook
Not really into the cooking scene, but I'm always looking for easy and interesting receipes. My daughters and daughter in-laws have put me on to your website. Looks like I'll be trying some new things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Can't say we have any. There's a tendency not to want to repeat mistakes.
My cooking triumphs
Toffee. Not wanting to make a trip to the market, I made some substitutions on a toffee receipe out of a well known cook book. The toffee was a great hit, and I made over 100 batches for the Boy Scouts to sell as a money making project for their summer camp. I have been pleased that so many people enjoy it and ask for the receipe. Which I am pleased to give out.
My cooking tragedies
Just about everything I've ever tried. I'm really belong outside working in in the yard.
