I've always liked to cook. I think there's a picture of me about 2 years old with a kitchen chair pulled up to the stove, with me standing on it with a spatula in hand trying tp scamblr eggs in the skillet that came in my toy pot and pan set. I have friends that come over once a week for new recipe night and to watch movies.
My favorite things to cook
Steak, Chicken, Wild Game, Jams, Cakes and Cookies. I guess I'm still a country kid at heart ... I also do Casseroles as comfort food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Kolachy's is the main one in my family, I used to help my grandmother in the kitchen. It was one of my most fond memories.
My cooking triumphs
A fantastic Seafood Lasanga and a Layered Chocolate-Raspberry Cake that is to die for.
My cooking tragedies
There was an incident when I was young not realizing that a turkey needs to be basted in butter or grease to get the brown color. I had a VERY WHITE turkey once.
