About this Cook
I'm a Dad who loves to cook for my incredible wife and two boys. I'm the typical over-babed dude constantly trying to live up to my wife's awesomeness.
My favorite things to cook
Breakfast- eggs-to-order, crepes, trying to master the stir-fry, dabbling in bread baking, BBQ...(duh)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom was the master of the rare roast beef. She was a highly accomplished cook who studied in France while my folks lived there in the late 60' the traditions range from the big holidays- the whole family of 30+ cousins and aunts & uncles every thanksgiving, to the day-to-day...she made the best macaroni & cheese ever. The list goes on.
My cooking triumphs
cracking the code on making Good chinese-style stir fry @ home...lame, I know. small victories.
My cooking tragedies
I have trouble with making sauces consistently....practice.

Barbequed Ribs
Outstanding recipe. Double the sauce for sure. Sauce was very sweet and good for those of low-spice tolerance. Kids ate it up. Totally worth the effort.

Authentic Pad Thai
This was really good just following the recipe, although not as good as decent pad thai from a restaurant. I think if I simmered everything together for a little longer (e.g. more than 5 mins), it would have reduced the vinegar flavor which was pretty obvious. Also, my noodles were a bit al dente - so more evidence that I didn't simmer long enough. All in all, this was REALLY good, but the bar is set pretty high for me as there is a lot of good Thai here (Seattle) that this dish is competing with.

Pablito's Chicken Tacos
This is really great- you don't even taste the kale (which is a plus for me) - and We have never used the sorrel becuase we haven't found it in our store...don't even know what it tastes like. But it's still delicious! The home made tortillas are completely worth the effort if you pick up a tortilla press. We freeze half of the tortillas (put some parchment between each one) and make it again in a few yummy!
