Love to cook always have, learned from my Dad and anyone that would let me bother them when they were cooking! Bless Gracie Everman for answering ALL of my questions, and getting me addicted to great Apple butter!
My favorite things to cook
Grilled Chicken. Grilled Corn-on-the-Cob.
Making fresh Pasta and then trying out new sauce ideas.
Still trying to perfect my Mom's cream gravy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fresh Green Beans with Potato's and bacon...
Something called goulash, from Indiana... Every one of our 4 children like this...
My cooking triumphs
Grilled chicken, everyone that eats it, loves it...
My Coleslaw, everyone seems to like it.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at making Mom's gravy. My brave bride (just married) even tried to tell me that it was not to bad... That story could be the basis for a 33 year marriage!! Can you say one LUCKY son of a gun!
