I live on my boat and drive a taxi for elderly and disabled persons during the week. I like things simple and quiet, and I love to prepare organic foods for my friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, stews and casseroles... since I make large quantities at a time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Geographically separated from my daughters and grandkids, when we do get together it's a given that I make corned beef and cabbage for my oldest, and spaghetti for my youngest. Before the visit is over, they both insist on my "chick pea soup done heartier" :)
My cooking triumphs
About 30 years ago I tackled crepe suzette, and it came out really awesome. It also took me half the day... so no matter how good it was, I vowed never to make it again, hehe.
My cooking tragedies
Haven't been many... I think the most notable was about 20 years ago when I decided to make a casserole of leftovers. It looked good on paper, but it tasted absolutely awful!
