About this Cook
I am an international award winning artist. I have a wide variety of iunterests and my numerous websites reflect those interests. Please visit these sites to learn more about me:
My favorite things to cook
I like to gril as well as smoke meat. I am an excellent campfire cook. I can and have created several pasta dishes. Yet what I am really good at is taking nothing and turning it into a full meal. To hear someone say; "There is nothing to eat." is not a discouragment, it is a challenge.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandmother started letting me help her in the kitchen when I was just 6 years old. She was and still continues to be my inspiration.
My cooking triumphs
I make the best Lazagna dish anyone has ever tasted.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to make gravy by myself at 11 years old. Epic failure, epic burn.
Recipe Reviews 1 review
Plum Jam
Good starter recipe. By adding an extra 1/2 cup of plums to recipe and cutting 1/2 cup of sugar you can increase the recipe to 12 half pint jars without losing any of the sweetness. I also used 2.35 ounces of pectin instead of the recommended 1.75 ounce. This thickened up the jam more. Also, to decrease foaming add 1 tablespoon of Lemon juice concentrate along with the butter. The Lemon Juice also helps remove air. Thank you for the inspiration DelightfulDines.
