I'm a bit rusty with my English, but I'll try to do my best. I retired from active duty from the Ven. Navy in '89. Graduated from Annapolis, class of '59. My favorite hobby was cooking, and now I've become a strong fan. I don?t like recipes that call for starting or adding canned products. I try to keep these to a minimum. I call these recipes chemistry. When you call for 1/2 can baked beans, I remember my chemistry classes in high school. The only cans I use are stewed tomatoes.
