Team Q
About this Cook
A widowed dad of a quickly growing young lady (born in 2002). she is my greatest fan and my most honest critic at the table. I wonder what she will think when she is on her 3rd day of Ramen in college :-)
My favorite things to cook
We are kind of a meat and potatoes duo but we fish and have a garden so all things are eaten. Here we have an abundance of fresh game, fish and, in the summer, produce so we are kind of spoiled.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Beef tongue, liver with bacon and onions, awesome pancakes and even better omelets. I am kind of fond of fresh bread too.
My cooking triumphs
This tastes awesome Daddy!!
My cooking tragedies

Rosemary Roasted Turkey
This was delicious!! I brinned the turkey in a cooler with water to cover, 1 1/2 cups salt and 3/4 cup brown sugar. I also added fresh, crushed rosemary, fresh chopped Basil, course chopped garlic and Italian seasoning. Brine for 24 hours if possible. Prior to cooking I followed the recipe with the addition of course chopped garlic and I used butter instead of oil. I also stuffed the turkey with celery, cut garlic cloves, onions and mushrooms (just for flavor but it tasted wonderful as well). I put it in at 400F and immediately turned down the heat to recommended temp. The results were yummy. Thank you Star Pooley

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
Wonderful soup. As others did before me I altered it a bit (cooks choice it seems :-) I added some thinly slice fresh carrots (just a bit) and some fresh cilantro, dried basil, and dried french thyme (a pinch of each). finally I added a small amount of well-done bacon finely chopped and topped it with more bacon bits, cheddar cheese and fresh parsley. Wonderful soup. Thanks for the great soup. All of our guest bowls were very clean :-)
