I was just diagnosed yesterday 2-29-2012 with diabetes.  I don't have a clue on what to do yet.  I've been reading in the American Diabetes Association but there is so much to read.  As usual the doctor really wasn't any help either.  I'll get it, it just takes time.  I really have never delt… MORE

About Me
I am a easy going guy who is always busy. Yes ladys and gents I don't have time for TV. During the winter months I am either hunting or most likely helping down at the church. During spring I am working on repairs outside and getting my hotbox ready for the garden. Summer and fall I am busy canning and freezing what comes out of my garden. I also cook all the meals for the day or event.
My favorite things to cook
I have to thank my mother for this. She broke her ankle when I was 10 years old, and there is where I learned to cook. I am nothing compared to my mother,(she is a true Chef), can make a delicous dish from scraps in the refigerator. Anyhow, I make a lot of bread type, deserts, nationalities.
My favorite family cooking traditions
You most likely won't like this. As a youngster we used to have family reunions and get togethers all the time. We would all go fishing and have a fish fry, and the ladys would bring side dishes and of corse desserts. That has gone now because America is to busy.
My cooking triumphs
Everything I have ever done has been great. I always end up with a empty dish.
My cooking tragedies
None: My daughter burnt popcorn;;; how do you burn popcorn? She said I did it, thats my girl.
