I would like to say that I am a purist and make everything from scratch, using only the freshest organic ingredients but I'm not.  I have tried.  I bought a bread machine and made several different types of bread.  They were all wonderful, especially when they were freshly baked and still… MORE

About Me
I'm the primary cook around our house and that is fine with me. Cooking is a hobby for me as well as a necessity. I enjoy learning new techniques and then tend to over-use them until I've found my next new technique. I love to experiment with recipes. I usually make them according to the written recipe the first time and then I experiment after that. It drives my wife crazy!
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook a lot of different things but my favorite cuisine would be Italian. I can't tell you how many different spaghetti sauces and lasagne recipes I have tried. At one point my wife forbade me from making spaghetti because we had it so often!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always have turkey dinner with oyster dressing on Thanksgiving. Baked ham is a must-have for Easter. Lasagne and red velvet cake are the only things I will eat for my birthday!
My cooking triumphs
I make a mean beef barbecue that everybody likes.
My cooking tragedies
I once made a fish and rice recipe for the kids. They are still talking about how bad it was. (20 years ago now!)
