I started cooking at the age of 14, more out of the need to eat rather than desire. I was the first one home n' if I wanted to eat supper on time it was up to me to get things started. With only two dismal failures under my belt I was on my way.
My favorite things to cook
Pork is my all time favorite meat. It's one meat anybody can prepare with tasty results.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Traditionally the holiday meals were prepared by the menfolk, mainly to give the women a break in the tideous day to day cooking.
My cooking triumphs
As long as the plates come back clean it's a triumph as far as I'm concerned.
My cooking tragedies
I still shudder to this day when I think of my first attempt at "rabbit fricassee" and that was 42 years ago!!
