I live near Philadelphia, but was born and raised in a very small town in the very northeast corner of New York state, Keeseville.
My interest in cooking has it's foundation in my enthusiasm for eating! My parents insisted that all 5 children learn to cook and bake, and of course, clean up afterwards!
When I started 4-H, I started gardening and using fresh grown (now called 'organic') vegetables for canning, freezing and cooking.
My parents owned and ran a Tastee-Freez restaurant in Keeseville. For those unfamiliar with the deliciousness of Tastee-Freez, they are a chain very similar to Dairy Queen, the main difference being we sold ice cream, 11-14% butterfat, rather than ice milk at 5%.... the difference between nirvana and purgatory in soft-serve ice cream.
Our Tastee-Freez was 'famous' for our michigans, which are hot dogs on buns with a meat sauce.
I mention this mainly because I've noticed a couple of members who are apparently from Northern NY and are familiar with Michigans. No one here in PA knows what I'm talking about. And surprisingly, no one I've ever met from Michigan has ever heard of them either!
My favorite foods are of course soft serve ice cream and michigans.
I also love charcoal grilled steak with sauteed mushrooms and corn on the cob.
I could go on, but I'd run out of room.
