About this Cook
I am a Canadian citizen, but was born within 100 miles of Mount Everest, in Nepal. I've been preparing 'special occassion' meals for my wife and three children for over 25 years. I find this site to be one of the best out there for soliciting opinions on submited recipes. My pet peeve is reviewers who do not make the posted recipe EXACTLY as written the first time they try it. I am all for 'tweaking' after the fact, to make the dish more to my personal taste if I find it 'close' but not quite there, but I lways start off making it just as presented.
My favorite things to cook
BBQ'd anything!, but particularly enjoy pork roasts and chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Huge turkey dinner spreads, where everyone brings a single dish of their choosing
My cooking triumphs
Great 'cooked outside the bird' turkey dressing (one day I'll get around to posting it here.
My cooking tragedies
Too many disasters to count in trying to make a really good chocolate fudge. It's either hard as a rock, or it never sets up, too 'grainy' with sugar, or so bland it seems more like vanilla sugar fudge. I'll keep trying though and, if I ever find a recipe that works every time, I will post it here.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I
This recipe is terrific just as written. It has that perfect balance between tart and sweet, with many interesting layers of flavor. Take this to a picnic or pot luck and you will be a star. Thank you for sharing!
