A Fifty-something spouse and father, I am a stay at home writer, cook and reader since a spinal cord injury forced me into retirement.
My favorite things to cook
Chocolate in all forms and varieties.
Tarts & Pies
Panacotta, custard, puddings etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cherry pie (Where have all the cherries gone?)
Slow roasted anything
Corn on the cob
Pasties (pronounced pah-stees, N0t pay-stees)
Cold fried chicken in a picnic basket
My cooking triumphs
Not spoiling a $175 prime rib roast (I have since become a vegetarian). It has gone down in the family annals as the best Christmas dinner, ever and anywhere.
My cooking tragedies
The Fire Department once visited when I was roasting bones, forgot, and stepped out of the apartment briefly. Oops!
