Burnt Toast - Recipes Plus
My mother was smart, talented, and beautiful; but lord help us she could not cook. Substituting flour for sugar because it is white is not the way to win the hearts and minds of your men folk. She always said she was meant to be a plaything. I guess that's why dinner was always overcooked and even the toast was usually burnt, but she looked great doing it! She loved us with all her heart and tried her darndest to show it through food which of course was my grandmother's role in life. Now that woman could cook - can't everybody's grandma? Then I married a woman whose mother was a home economics teacher. She can turn a can of almost anything into a gourmet meal. Lord help me now. So..., the stay at home dad started learning to cook. I try not to burn the toast and look presentable at the same time. It is not an easy life.
I enjoy cooking. I have no formal training. I observe, improvise and embellish. My children think most people eat garbage. I'm all about fresh ingredients, healthful cooking, ethnicity, comfort, and creativity. Come on over to our house, you'll be surprised. Really. You will.
