Raised in New England then spent 10 years in the USAF with a year in Vietnam. Married since 1972. I ride motorcycles, take pictures and write novels.
My favorite things to cook
I suppose that my favorites are dependent upon the season. Yet the constants seem to be Italian, which I got my training in, basic American comfort food and slow cooker meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I think helping my wife make her glazed walnuts each Christmas season is about it. We use to make gingerbread men and decorate them with my daughter and friends.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made a well cooked and good looking stuffed omelet without breaking the seal. I remember smiling at that little event, knowing the messes I had previously made.
My cooking tragedies
I undercooked at banana bread recently, leaving the top third of the middle of the loaf, about half done. The toothpick came out clean, but it wasn't done. Luckily it was just for us and I caught it. Very embarrassing.
