Hello, my name is Larry and I love to create in the kitchen and share the results. I read and collect recipes from a variety of sources – cookbooks, magazines, friends, the internet – and end up trying a fraction of them. I want to change that, however, so I have decided to start writing about my pursuits here.
I first learned to cook and bake from following my mother around, in and out of the kitchen. A working mom, she did her best to get dinner on the table each night and that often meant take-out. I joke that we had KFC six nights a week and that on Sunday she made her own fried chicken. OK, she never made her own fried chicken. It was Shake ‘n Bake. As a result, I have not eaten a piece of fried chicken in many years. Weekends were spent in the kitchen, a tradition that I carry on to this day.
I hope you enjoy my website and I welcome your feedback and comments.
