My favorite things to cook
Where to start. Roasts, chops, steaks, hot dishes, meat loaf, chicken (fried, baked) cabbage rolls, stuff peppers, and of course baking breads, rolls and deserts
My favorite family cooking traditions
basice mid and south west cooking styles. Pretty Traditional I guess
My cooking triumphs
I ask my wife what she wanted for her birthday dinner and she replied, broiled steak, twice baked potatoes top with cheese, white steamed asparagus with a light cheese sauce, and peaches Flambeau. So I did it all and it was a tremendous success. Not very fancy but sure surprised her the next day.
My cooking tragedies
You just "aint" got enough room here to list them all. but I guess the best (worst) was my first stab at scratch bread. NOT GOOD, more like crackers or a boat anchor. needed a "saws all" to cut it. Never did figure out what happened.
