About this Cook
retired, work outside constantly on the back deck specializing in herbs and spices in pots and xeroscaping in ornamental grasses in my front yard
My favorite things to cook
soups, stews, sauces, casseroles, steaks, shrimp, scallops
My favorite family cooking traditions
Original German recipes brought over by my ancestors that have innumerable ways to fix noodles. Also, other dishes that use root vegetables because they provided their own food by gardening.
My cooking triumphs
My spaghetti sauces. I make 20 quarts at a time and no two are ever the same. My sauce is a three day labor of love. I give away at least 12 quarts from each batch. Thus, I make it about every two months.
My cooking tragedies
The worst tragedy was when I was making Asian Chicken Noodle soup. It was the second day and the soup was simmering nicely when my good friend and down-the-street neighbor called and said it's cocktail time. Having been cooking and tasting for a few hours I was hot from both the temperature and the soup. So I went down and had a few cocktails and an enjoyable conversation which added up to almost three hours. Arriving home I smelled the unmistakable odor of "burning." I had forgotten to turn off the heat and my soup now had almost two inches of solid black burnt everything on the bottom of the pot. It took me the better part of three days to clean that stock pot.

Peach Cobbler II
Excellent taste. Best I ever had. Didn't have buttermilk so I substituted with yogurt. Spot on.

Fisherman's Catch Chowder
excellent - not a fan of fish, but will make this time and again as this chowder carries the flavor of the fish (used fresh water fish) but does not overwhelm and retains the concept of a chowder, not fish with a sauce. served for friends and was rewarded with raves.
