My favorite things to cook
I love anything that makes cooking easier. After cooking for over 40 years, this recipe site keeps me interested in mixing things up. I cook almost exclusively from the recipes I find here. I love using my pressure cooker and slow cooker. Since I have started using this recipe site, meals are almost 100% successful, thanks to tips from other recipe reviewers.
My cooking tragedies
About 25 years ago I had about 16 people over for Christmas dinner. I wanted to fix a pork tenderloin. I went to the butcher and bought enough for all to have a couple servings. For whatever reason, I didn't read a recipe, but just put it in the oven for about 4 hours, no liquid or anything. When I went to serve it, it was a petrified piece of meat...and I had all these people who were starving! All stores closed for the holiday, so it was a sparce meal of just side dishes. I can laugh about it now, but then it was mortifying!
