Welcome to my obsession. Cooking, shopping for the cooking, feeding people, and eating! I learned to cook by osmosis. My grandmother’s Special Sunday pot roast (rolled Rib Roast, do you believe it!), when I was younger than 10, spurred the passion. Those roasted brown potatoes being lifted from the Stove-top Dutch Oven, then later melting in my mouth. I was hooked, I had to know how it happened. I actually have a picture from that day.
Grilled cheese, hot dogs and anything that can be heated from the can, were my first solo ventures. I graduated to frying in short order, french fries! I still love french fries, but I make them healthier now.
By the time I turned 16, I was making Hungarian Goulash from scratch on a weekly basis, in a Big Orange Creuset Dutch Oven. I was on my way. During the high school years, I probably cooked most family dinners for my mom, and 3 sisters. No one ever complained, ever. In 1969 I bought that pot for $40, wish I knew where it was now.
I BBQ & make the gravy where ever I go. I think I’m invited just for that reason! “Steffie will do it” is something I hear all the time.
Please feel free to contribute any recipe you would like. With the help of my genius son, I am working on an ingredient cookmethis search APP. It will search out a tasty recipe based on the input of ingredients. Such as Balsamic+Chicken+Pasta. It would probably result in ‘Grilled Balsamic Chicken’.
