About this Cook
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!

Sesame Beef Bites
Excellent recipe; I would have given 4.5 stars, but I made many substitutions and simplified a few things . Overall the sauce was perfect and after using the tenderloin will spend the money and use this in all Asian inspired dishes. My primary changes are as follows: - the marinade effective penetrates the beef after only a few minutes of shaking the bag and light tenderizing on counter. I had very little prep time and was pleased the marinade worked in 5-10 mins. - instead of broiling the meat I own fried on high heat including marinade. Marinade cooked away for the most part. -added broccoli while cooking meat; I only had frozen florets but hey turned out with excellent taste and texture. -Multiple marinade ingredient substitutes, only because I lack many traditional Asian go-to's. Primarily consisted of Apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, liquified coconut oil, half a white onion and added garlic (5 small cloves)

Suzy's Mashed Red Potatoes
VERY good; I have made this recipe a lot and have no suggestions because it is great the way it is described!

Best Chicken Ever
Tasty, but as other reviewers did, I added more spices to the breading mixture(garlic powder, seasoning salt, and more Italian seasoning - be generous as amount indicated in ingredients is a bit bland). Be generous with the sour cream, that is a good source of flavor in the chicken. P.S. - An easy way of crushing the corn flakes is to put into a ziploc bag and mash with just abotu anything.
