About this Cook
I am a philosopher that enjoys a variety of experiences. I strive for self-reliance - cooking is just one interest that allows me to actualize that desire.
My favorite things to cook
I try not to put many constraints on my cooking experiences which helps me to try new things. Since I live alone, I find that I don't deviate much from cooking entrees. I also avoid recipes that call for more than 10 ingredients - that's just way too expensive. Good food can be had for few dollars than that. I like cooking italian, various soups, indian, mexican, thai, "meat and potato" dishes, roasts, and the occasional rattlesnake to name a few.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any family cooking traditions that evoke pleasant memories. The food was always good but unfortunately, there wasn't much risk taken in trying new recipes.
My cooking triumphs
I have found many great recipes on this site - hungarian mushroom soup and spinach tortellini are two of my favorites. Discovering those recipes and taking the first bite/mouthful were truly enlightening experiences. Those are the moments that I live for. I recently tried an indian lamb stew that also turned out magnificently.
My cooking tragedies
My biggest cooking tragedy was beer cheese soup. It was suggested that I use an IPA beer with this recipe. The end product tasted like thick, warm beer. I don't think this was the intended result and not only that, I ended up sick for the day.

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas
This was a very tasty recipe, especially on the second day. I slow-cooked the chicken in beer, onions, pepper, cumin and garlic as another reviewer suggested. I also only added the taco seasoning to only half of the enchiladas for comparison. I actually originally cringed at the thought of adding the taco seasoning; I thought the chicken and green chili pepper combination was very good on its own and didn't want to ruin it. After all was said and done, my suspicions were correct. I had a strong preference for the enchiladas without the extra seasoning; they just tasted so much more authentic.(..as my tongue would define authenticity.) I would suggest trying both variations. I will definitely be making these enchiladas again.

Shoyu Chicken
This is one of my favorite grilled chicken recipes. I have no idea if this can be considered traditional Shoyu. Regardless, it stands very well on its own.
