I'm a stay at home Dad (4 of 8 are still at home) and an internet entrepreneur. Have cooked since I can remember. I cooked in the Coast Guard and at several hoity-toity upscale restaurants and baked bread for a great little Jewish bakery in South Minneapolis.
My favorite things to cook
Right now I'm really into baking breads. I love cooking any Asian food, Indian to Thai, with the exception of Japanese. Tex-Mex is always a fav too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Experimenting... My mom seldom had recipes nor do I. Create from what you have on hand. Some great thing have come to fruition!
My cooking triumphs
Thai peanut noodle salad. Always a hit and fattening as hell. Curried anything. After a week of trial and error... I came up with a great potato bread, using real potatoes, in the bread machine.
My cooking tragedies
A green curry not too long ago that was so blazing hot that no one could tolerate it. Even I thought it was a bit too much. We had the kids make sandwiches instead.
