I was born and raised on a farm and started cooking with the Ohio 4-H clubs. I am a telecommunications professional for a southern california city. I love to unwind all that technology with cooking from scratch.
My favorite things to cook
Homemade pasta with sauce ingredients from my garden. Smoking meat, holiday dinners.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Prime Rib dinner on Christmas Eve,
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make home made pasta, learning to can (a lost art by the way) my own tomatoes.
My cooking tragedies
Making pasta with Semolina Flour. I still can't make that work!
