Being single a lot of my life I never had anyone except my mother to help in the food department.
I started out boiling Ramen noodles and worked my way up the food chain (get the pun?) until I had a better grasp on things besides Bar-b-Que.
I think to think of myself as a proficient person in the kitchen and now have a few of my own token meals people love to come over and enjoy.
My favorite things to cook
Due to my not being at home until late generally I love the crock pot but I like to cook just about anything that I think might taste good.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking on the grill with my dad, it wasn't just some man thing it was a way of life and had certain rules and etiquette that needed to be met.
My cooking triumphs
Anything grilled... I learned from my father the secret of grilling and anything off it is just awesome.... sorry; if your not blood or potential blood you wont get the secrets.
My cooking tragedies
I wont say anything here except never drink a 6 pack and try and cook $70 worth of shrimp
