I'm an avid Husker football fan who loves to cook. I tend to view most (but not all) recipes as general guides & like to take recipes & make them my own by varying the ingredients. Sometimes this works, sometimes I end up dumping the food onto the compost heap!!
My favorite things to cook
I'll try any recipe at least once. See my reviews for recipes that I have tried!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother loves to cook & she was the one who taught me how to cook & I'm teaching my children how to cook.
My cooking triumphs
Made microwaved bread once & only once as a teenager. Mixed it up somewhat like regular bread, but "baked" it in my mother's microwave. Can't remember the ingredients or times, etc. to this day!
My cooking tragedies
Was a newlywe cooking my 1st EVER Thanksgiving meal totally on my own ... turkey blackl & burnt on the outside, bloody red raw on the inside. Followed mom's "advice" & cooked turkey at 450º for 1 hr with no tinfoil or basting, nada! Found out mom was joking. :-} Thanks mom! :P
