My kitchen is my favorite place in the house. Golf with my good friend Tom in Phoenix is the best. I gave up cigars, and chewing tobacco. I am trying real hard to be more healthy.
My favorite things to cook
My Baked Salmon is always great. I have a simple recipe from Jacque Pipin, Felit Mignon in Port Wine Glaze, that always turns out perfect. Sara and Travis love my "Coconut Shrimp Green Chile Enchiladas" wow! And, I would like to return to brewing beer - I gave it up a few years ago...
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have my special recipe for Lasagna every Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Came in 3rd place in the "Denver's best home cook contest, 2005."
My cooking tragedies
Cooked and carefully basted a beautiful turkey with my new bought turkey basting tool. Once done and the eating began, my taste buds told me I had left the plastic sack inside the belly of the bird and came out smelling and tasting like a baby diaper. I burped plastic for 3 days.
