About this Cook
I am a roguish ne'er-do-well in my mid/late twenties.
My favorite things to cook
Rich, creamy pastas, spicy stir fry, anything involving red meat and garlic really.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad is a strict, meat-and-tater kinda guy, so on nights he was gone, mom and I would break out the cookbooks and experiment with the fancy recipes. There were a lot of disasters, but several favorites came out of those nights, too.
My cooking triumphs
My family loves my stuffed mushroom recipe. It's nice to have the older, more experienced family cooks appreciate something I do.
My cooking tragedies
Dough. I don't make it. I don't know what it is, but I can never get that junk to do what it's supposed to do.

Quinoa and Black Beans
This was DELICIOUS! Like a lot of the other reviewers, I mixed things up a little. Cut it down to one can of black beans, added more cayenne, added chopped cherry tomatoes and a splash of lime juice. I took it to work and people who had never even HEARD of quinoa were raving about it! This may be the best thing I've tried on AllRecipes yet. Thank you, 3LIONCUBS!

Jimmy's Mexican Pizza
This was delicious and so easy to make! Instead of 10-inch tortillas, I divided it up among smaller, individual-sized tortilla rounds so I could take leftovers to work for lunch. The seasonings used for the ground beef are a revelation to me -- definitely going to become my new taco seasoning from now on!
