About this Cook
Hey - I am a 41 yr. old single man (in 2011). I enjoy cooking very much. I live in rural NW Ohio, and have gained cooking traditions from my grandmothers. I enjoy cooking for crowds (and have cooked for as many as 200). I am a United Methodist, and a youth leader. I love photography and travel, too.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook anything. I have recently been teaching myself how to make pies. It has been fun!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family has a Dutch/German heritage, so it is fun to learn to cook all that stuff! My family were farmers, also. So I enjoy learning how to do all the canning, etc.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime someone says, "oh, that's good" or "can I have the recipe"? That is a triumph! Cooking (to me) is about the people and times/experiences shared...good food just is the seasoning to those experiences.
My cooking tragedies
Well, we just try to learn from those and move on. That is part of the fun of cooking. Let's just say I've had a lot of fun! :)
