I am a Wisconsin native that loves to be outdoors, either camping, fishing, or playing sports. And, of course, cooking with my wife!
My favorite things to cook
Simple meals. In my experience (some of which has been with the greatest cook I know - an Italian Grandmother), great meals do not need to have 30 ingredients. Often a cheap cut of meat with the right cooking will taste just as good, if not better, than an expensive meal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family's homemade Italian Sausage is second-to-none! The preparation is the real highlight, bringing family members together.
My cooking triumphs
Carrying on the family tradition of homemade Italian Sausage has always been a source of pride. Cooking turkey and ham dinners to 50+ hungry college students was very fun as well.
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 12, I was making homemade garlic bread and misread the recipe. Needless to say, in no case should anyone put 6 cups of salt in a single loaf of bread. I've since learned to read ingredients thoroughly!
