About this Cook
I am on the rough side, loving art, the performing arts, certain old folks, young people, music, horses and pets a lot more than anything in the kitchen. Pre-1956 Ford pickups, too. I love polo games. I love a Norristown Zep. I love San Diego.
My favorite things to cook
Pies in the Fall; Apple and Lemon. Lasagna in Winter and chicken pie. Zeps in the Spring and shrimp salad. Anything with avocado and tomato all Summer.
My favorite family cooking traditions
From Albuquerque, NM and Norristown, PA., one dish is a coarse and yummy red chile stew done overnight with warm honeyed frybread and cold Pepsis on the side. My home town favorite is bracciole, a rolled, filled steak done to death in fresh tomato sauce.
My cooking triumphs
Spaghetti sauce. Fresh lemon pie.
My cooking tragedies
Mexican green chile pork. Mexican carnitas done in the lard with orange. Mexican grilled steak with green onion and limes. Decent tortillas without aftertaste or afterbite of the flour or leavening.

American Potato Salad
Plain American good! The stuff the young kids like and us older types recall from quick summer lunches and thrown together picnics. We enjoyed the taste of the diced green pepper and will do it again. We use whatever potatoes are cheapest, usually Idaho or whites on the new side. Red potatoes are a buck more a pound here and we just can't like them for that. This recipe just keeps a very fresh, clean taste...a nice break from all the mustards and relishes and who knows what all goes in the bowl with more uptown folks. Some times we put a little fine dice of celery leaf, too. Our home recipe is identical (barring the red spuds and sweet green pepper) from the first heat of May through the end of November...and now we're going to spend the extra for that little green pepper! Thank you!
