Widower trying to put all the kitchen toys to work! Finding it fun.
My favorite things to cook
I find that baking bread is the favorite thing right now. So simple but very challenging at the same time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom used to make the best homemade candies. If I didn't live in Hawaii, I'd be making some. Humidity is way too high here for that.
My cooking triumphs
Winning best dish award at the last cooking club get together. I made the Alton Brown's Red beans and rice with a big platter of corn muffins from a AR recipe.
My cooking tragedies
Putting way too much anise in a scratch cake my mom let me make when I was about 12 or 13. Just couldn't taste the anise in the batter so I kept adding more!! Should have smelt the house.....
