Welcome to my quirky blog. It's all about trying new recipes and their results, especially holiday recipes.
I've been in the kitchen cooking for my family since I was fourteen, when my dad told me how he liked his beans cooked, handed me a copy of "The Joy of Cooking" and went back outside to work on our farm. Those first beans were a little chewy, but I like to think I've made progress since then.
I hope you will join me for what is sometimes a bumpy ride on the way to discovering new tastes as well as new takes on old favorites.
My main focus is holiday recipes, but if you see something you like, don't wait for a holiday to try it. And let me know what you think of the result, too.
