I love cooking, experimenting, family-style meals, and cooking to give to others. I like the outdoors, kids, dogs, science fiction, medical mysteries and all the law and order drama shows
My favorite things to cook
good ol' homestyle food - comfort, fun, and something to share
My favorite family cooking traditions
homemade caramels for christmas, sausage/onion/apple/sage dressing with turkeys, real whipped cream with vanilla/almond extract, sugar, and a little lemon juice served with any pie.
My cooking triumphs
pork wellington - browned pork loin, sauteed mushrooms chopped fine, all put together and baked in puff pastry.
My cooking tragedies
wrong seasoning when putting together left over dressing, mashed potatoes, turkey, vegetables - had to throw it out.
