I found a nice sale on strawberries so I bought 2 quarts and brought them home. The first quart went fast, eaten fresh with a little sugar. With the second quart, I wanted to do something a little more special. I bought some chocolate chips and considered making chocolate-dipped strawberries. MORE

I decided this weekend I wanted to try something I had never had before. I went to the grocery and nothing intrigued me, but chuck roasts were on sale, so I bought one. Now, what to do that was 'different' with a pot roast? Well, in the British Isles, Yorkshire Pudding is a traditional side… MORE

About Me
I have been cooking most of my life. I was a professional cooking instructor, 2005-2010. I live alone, currently but have cooked for over 200 people 5 days a week, for 5 years. I am now a vocational business instructor.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort foods are my favorite. I love to cook things that make people smile and feel warm inside.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Basic southern cooking, with some ethnic items tossed in. My fatheris the big cook in the family and (still) loves trying new things.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving dinner... a challenge to coordinate, with many bad events in the past. 2007 was finally a complete success! Timing is everything!
My cooking tragedies
... Thanksgiving dinners, again... seems something is usually underdone, overdone, undone... It's almost like I have some kind of mental block when it comes to Thanksgiving.
