About this Cook
Retired. My primary hobbies are Woodworking and Woodturning. I also volunteer with several agencies and groups. I recently became an Organic Gardener and gained some interesting and exciting knowledge and grew some amazing vegetables. Despite my efforts, I am still a Novice in the kitchen. I really appreciate the input from those of you who are experienced sharing your knowledge and skills with the likes of me.
My favorite things to cook
Hearty Soups and Old Fashioned Main Courses, but avoiding soy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday / family get togethers with traditional menus... but improved with the help of allrecipes.com.
My cooking triumphs
I have developed a few successful recipes I will share with you when I gain more confidence in their dependability. Everything I have done right in the past few years I owe to recipes which rightly belong to others who are smarter than I am (and there are many) ... though I may have altered some ingredients to suit my own dietary constraints.
My cooking tragedies
Every time I think I have gained the upper hand, I stray from the advice of others and start dabbling in the spices ... to my own detriment.

Salsafied Chicken and Rice
I would like to see this recipe amended so that the time for preparation and cooking is included and so that the issue of the rice (cooked or uncooked ??) is addressed. I'm not that smart at cooking so I don't know these things. Also, I would like to see what the change would be with regular (not instant) rice. Thank You.

Chicken with Garlic, Basil, and Parsley
This was outstanding. Easy is Right ! I did change the ingredients a bit to suit my own taste and saved it with the same title. My version uses Olive Oil, Italian Seasoning, lots of fresh basil and lots of tomatoes ... but this recipe is still the source.

Pork Chops in Red Sauce
What a wonderful, tasty, unusual supper this made !! I was going to BBQ the porkchops but the weather was so ugly I turned to allrecipes.com for an alternative and, once again, I was not disappointed. My wife is starting to think I know something about cooking but the truth is that allrecipes is my inspiration. Thank you.

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
