About this Cook
I live in Southern, CA with my wife of 15 yrs and our 2 kids. You can see more at
My favorite things to cook
Short ribs, any Italian or Mexican (I love chile peppers), Pork shank(osso buco), salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom taught me about using different herbs and spices when I was young. She worked 2 jobs, so she taught us to cook at an early age.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I was hired to cook a dinner party. Everything went great and was hired to cook for another party.
My cooking tragedies
I'm always making up new recipes and using my family as guinea pigs. Too many tragedies to mention.

Royal Icing II
Used it to glue together a CA mission for kid's project. Worked perfect and had plenty even with the kids sneaking bites constantly

Fluffy Pancakes
Fantastic. Made them multiple times-forgot to leave a review. Only thing I add is teaspoon vanilla to a double batch. We freeze the extras to reheat for a quick breakfast during the week. My kids now beg for "fluffy pancakes, fluffy pancakes". Thanks for a great recipe!

Old Fashioned Onion Rings
Made these using panko crumbs whirled in the food processor till very fine. Put the coatings in two different bags as others did and clean up was simple. These were fantastic!
