About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Hearty soups from scratch, yeast breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up near Detroit on Appalachian foods.
My cooking triumphs
"Cream of". Made with a little hamburger, limp vegetables, wide noodles and 'cream of something' soup. My kids loved it and although they are now in their 30's, ask for it whenever we get together. The oldest tells me that he has made it for his family, too.
My cooking tragedies
Spaghetti with shrimp. Even the dog wouldn't eat it.

Rapid Chicken Stock
As long as you have the pressure cooker out, why not go ahead and seal the jars? That way there's no need to use it up right away.

Vegetarian Chickpea Curry with Turnips
I made this recipe several says ago with some added celery and carrots and my wife hasn't stopped raving about it yet! I enlarged the recipe to 16 servings so that I would have some to dry for later. After having eaten from it twice, I stirred in the remaining basmati rice and popped it into the drier. It dried up "crunchy dry" in about 12 hours. I'm looking forward to eating this while backpacking, as well as storing a couple quarts for home use. My sister-in-law just brought some more monster-sized turnips. So I'm off to find other recipes, too!
