About this Cook
I'm retired an living in Greenwich Village with my partner. We have a studio apartment so our kitchen facilities are limited to what can fit in such a small space.
My favorite things to cook
My partner is limited in what he can safely eat so we're restricted to primarily poultry and fish dishes. So anything related to those two restrictions is what I try to work with.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We're still creating traditions since I started cooking. But Pastas, Potatoes, and Fish/Poultry are what I try to create.
My cooking triumphs
Everything I've tried from Allrecipes has been almost fail-safe. I don't know what I would do without allrecipes and have found some basic ingredient constants that have allowed me to try my hand at meals without having a allrecipes printout in front of me.
My cooking tragedies
No real tragedies, but I have problems with measuring pasta in volumes other than 12 or 16oz. If the pasta recipe calls for something other than those package size (12 or 16oz) measurements I'm in trouble.

Anniversary Chicken I
One of the easiest and tastiest dishes I've made from those here on All Recipes. I followed the recipe as written but only used 4 chicken breasts instead of 6. Apparently that was not a problem because we devoured this chicken in one sitting.....all four breasts (there were just two of us)!
