Hey Bubba; I'm one of da resident Yoopers 'round here. I hail from Sault Ste. Marie, MI. I go by Goodweed of the North cause I was a runty kid whose dad used to say "One of these days, you're gonna sprout up like a bad weed." Well, I'm still measuring in at 5'6". Never did sprout up like a bad weed, maybe like a barrel cactus though
(not really that bad. I work out a lot).
Like you, I have no formal cooking training, just a whole bunch of experience, a lot of trial and error, some scientific methodology, and a strong desire to know what works, why it works, and how to apply the knowledge gained. I've been at this for about 30 years now.
Love to talk, love to write, love to share, and love to get compliments about the things I prepare (love that swelled head feeling
We sound a bit alike, don't we? Welcome. As all have said, you're going to love it here.
Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North
