I am a historical reenactor and cooking nut!
( My current "photo" is an oil painting of me by artist : David Jones. ).
I love to research and authenticate recipes as well as create new recipes. I try to use historicaly correct cooking methods when preparing foods from the past.
My wife ( of 34 years as of 2008 ) and kids ( all six of them ) have always been supportive and daring in trying the foods I cook.
WARNING: Some of "My" recipes were altered when they were transfered from RecipeZaar to food.com . If any of my recipes seems wrong, they are! Please contact me if you have any questions on my recipes accuracy. Shadows
AS OF 01/14/2010 I WILL NO LONGER BE SUBMITTING "MY" RECIPES OR PHOTOS TO ZAAR! ( I will still post recipes of interest )
THIS IS DUE TO THE RECENT ANNOUNCEMENT THAT PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP TO BLOCK ADS WILL NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE!
You have probibly seen some of my recipes elsewhere on the web, some posted under a different name.
I also run a cooking forum on an online celtic radio station.
Please try and review my recipes... I can take constructive and subjective reviews... negetive comments help improve...after all that is what this is all about!
If you make one of my recipes and have a camera please take a photo and post it!

I will comment on some recipes without rating.
Thank you's for reviews I post are not required and I thank everyone without Zmail for their reviews of my recipes in advance.
I have participated in:
My pet peeves: The " I haven't tried this yet " statement! Try it for the gods sake and then post it! I don't want to be your research lab. Then the posts from the "scripps web sites" we all know where they are if we want to try them...
meat, wild game, rich and spicy, original foods from unknown cooks.
Anything cooked over an open fire.
My cookbooks here reflect my interest in other's recipes as well as my own. They are a collection of tried and want to try foods that have appeal to us.
NOTE: I do not pretend to eat healthy... I eat what I like... moderation is the key!
