About this Cook
I am a male who has been the chief cook and bottle washer for his family for many years. Both my grown sons love to cook for their families whereas my daughter can take it or leave it even though she is an excellent cook in her own right. I absolutely love to cook.
My favorite things to cook
I will try anything. Most of the time I cook without a recipe. I hate baking (too much exact measuring) so thank goodness my wife is an excellent baker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having my kids, step-kids, their spouses and our grandchildren, over for a big family meal. They all love my cooking so it's a big boost to my ego.
My cooking triumphs
After re-marrying, inviting my new wife's rather large family (31 people) to Christmas dinner for the first time and doing all the cooking myself. The meal turned out perfectly. Even the sister-in-law I don't see eye to eye with, complimented me. I excel in making sauces and gravies. The sauces, especially the gravies, keep my mother-in-law and my wife happy, so what more could I ask for.
My cooking tragedies
Far too numerous to mention. Cooking without a recipe invites the occasional disaster.

Spinach Quiche
I make this whenever my family stays overnight. They absolutely love it and always ask me to make it. I found there is too much filling for one pie so I usually divide it and make two. The only thing I've changed, as many reviewers have, is using sliced fresh mushrooms instead of canned.

Chicken Tetrazzini IV
I followed the recipe as written. Even though my wife and family seemed to enjoy it, I found it a little bland. I will definitely make it again but maybe with a little garlic and a dash of cayenne for a little extra pizzaz.

Fluffy Pancakes
This is my recipe of choice for pancakes. I use to use buttermilk until I had house full of family stay overnight. They wanted pancakes for breakfast and no buttermilk. The vinegar and milk was a fantastic substitute. Thanks for the idea.
