CRAIGER'S WINGS
About this Cook
AS A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT I COOKED IN A LOCAL HOSPITAL. THEN I WENT TO A NURSING HOME AND GOT EXPERIENCE WITH DIETARY SITUATIONS. AFTER 4 YEARS I TOOK THE CHEF'S POSITION AT THE STATE COLLEGE. HAVING BEEN THERE FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME I WANTED RESTAURANT EXPERIENCE SO I CALLED IN A FAVOR AND WORKED IN ASPEN CO. I AM NOW RETIRED.
My favorite things to cook
I REALLY HAVE NO FAVORITES. I LOVE TO COOK FOOD PERIOD.
My favorite family cooking traditions
MY FAVORITE FAMILY RECIPE IS NEW ENGLAND BOILED DINNER. ANOTHER RECIPE IS MY GRANDMOTHERS RASBERRY PIE...HEAVENLY!
My cooking triumphs
AT THE STATE COLLEGE WHERE I WORKED WE ONCE COOKED 8,000 STEAK DINNERS FOR PARENTS DAY IN ONLY 90 MINUTES, AMONG THE VISITORS WAS JIMMY CARTER AND HIS WIFE ON THEIR MEET THE PEOPLE TOUR WHILE HE WAS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT.
My cooking tragedies
COOKED RED SNAPPER FOR 300 AT THE LOCAL MOOSE LODGE ON THE GRILL AND EVERYTHING JUST FELL APART. THANK GOD THE PEOPLE WERE FORGIVING.

Old Fashioned Onion Rings
THIS IS A WONDERFUL BASIC RECIPE. I TWEAKED IT BY SOAKING THE ONIONS IN MILK OVERNIGHT IN A ZIP LOCK BAG. THE ACID IN THE MILK HELPS TO TENDERIZE THE ONIONS. I TWEAKED THIS RECIPE MORE BY ELIMINATING THE BREAD CRUMBS, THIS LEAVES YOU WITH A BATTERED ONION RING. IF YOU USE THE MILK FROM THE ZIP LOCK BAG TO MAKE THE BATTER, THE FLAVOR OF THE ONION GOES ALL THROUGH THE MIXTURE. TENDER AND FLAVORFUL ONION RINGS ARE THE RESULT
