I am retired,former Marine, active in the Marine Corps League, American Legion and VFW.
My favorite things to cook
Mostly regular meal cooking. I do my own smoking and like to cook various smoked foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking regular holiday meals without getting too far out with side dishes. A lot of our cooking is from the German background of this area.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for camp members. Not being fancy but good and filling. Rubbing, smoking and slow cooking a pork shoulder butt and having it all eaten, not because there wasn't enough but because it was enjoyed.
My cooking tragedies
From time to time for not paying enough attention or allowing myself to be distracted.
