I took up cooking after becoming friends with a Culinary Artist. He taught me a love for cooking if not the skills needed, those I picked up on my own. I rarely follow the recipe to the letter and am constantly experimenting.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that I can share with appreciative diners.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fleisch Kuechle, Knoephla soup, charcoal grilling, bread, cookies.
My cooking triumphs
Green Pizza, Grilled Chicken, Knoephla Soup, and Roman Flatbread.
My cooking tragedies
When I was young and attempting my first batch of peanut butter bars, I misread the hand written recipe.
One ingredient was written on two lines:
1-1/2 Cups Milk
So I added 1-1/2 Cups of Milk, then some chocolate chips.
