Grew up on a farm in South West WI, learned to cook ol' fashioned country dishes from mom & grandmothers.
My favorite things to cook
Still love mom's old school country recipes...meat, 'taters and veggies!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's chicken & dumplings. She used to make it whenever I came home to visit.
My cooking triumphs
Finally figured out how to cook great pork baby back ribs. Took me all summer to get the rub and cooking times/smoke right.
My cooking tragedies
I can't bake to save my life. I leave that up to my wife.
