My Mom started teaching me how to cook and about food at age 5, she said “You are not going to grow up waiting for a Woman to fed you, or eat at fast food joints” She pulled a chair up to the stove and my education started and blossomed. Thank you Mom!
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking German, Southern and traditional hardy farm foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Both my parents came from very large farming families, cooking large amounts of food.
I have trouble making small batches of food, instead of enough for a platoon of hungry folks.
My cooking triumphs
My wife has six sisters, and for every family function I get requests from them to make special recipes of mine. I love that I can out cook all of then.
My cooking tragedies
Soufflés; Can not get them to turn out right, so I just don’t even try any more.
