Well by trade I'm a photographer that just happens to like to cook. "Never trust a skinny chef," and I'm far from skinny weighing in around 250lbs, lol! I'm quiet until you get to know me and then it's off to the races. I have a beautiful wife, two amazing son's (twins) and the happiest baby girl to ever smile! If I'm not behind the camera or in front of the stove you'll usually find me listening to my I-pod. I'm a music NERD!
My favorite things to cook
Potato salad is my specialty. I like a mix of German and Southern style salad. Gotta have my bacon y'know! Second to that would have to be Beef/Pork. Baking or grilling it, doesn't matter as long as it tastes great. Currently trying to perfect my molases and honey marinade...I'll keep ya posted.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving without a doubt! Helping my mother in the kitchen the night before has always been a treat to me. She'd cook for hours and then tell me to hold out my hand. She'd put a spoon full of Potato salad in my hand and say, "Tell me what it needs?" Hopefully I'll pass this tradition down to my children.
My cooking triumphs
Honey Glazed London Broil..Mmmmmmmm!
My cooking tragedies
Stuffed Bell Peppers...still trying to live that one down. cookbook said NOTHING about browning the meat first. "Sigh....."
