I am 75 and live in Maine. I have been cooking since age 1- or 11. I have a Maine Coon named Zeus. My mother was German and I have lived in many parts of the world. I learned to cook many foreign dishes. Since I have found the joys of the Slow Cooker, I have modified many recipes to accommodate it.
My favorite things to cook
German, Mexican, Italian, Puerto Rican, Austrian, Island cooking, and French. Everyone loves my German Chocolate Whipped Cream Cake. Any seafood dish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Blackberry Flummery and Cape Cod Blueberry Pie. Sauerbraten and Baked Creamed Finnin Hadie.
My cooking triumphs
My own version of German Chocolate Cake that I call German Chocolate Whipped Cream Cake. my version of Slow Cooker chicken breast and my blueberry pie.
My cooking tragedies
After 60 years of making all kinds of fudge and using a recipe I have used for about 20 years, when I made it two weeks ago, it did not harden.
