I'm a retired business management consultant, turned SEO. I've always loved cooking, and do a lot of it, as my beltline will attest.
My favorite things to cook
I like doing the entire meal. I'm a meat & potatoes kinda guy, but enjoy making up semi-exotic side-dishes too. A pot roast or prime rib is just the centerpiece.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Easter, Christmas and Thanksgiving are our big family holidays, and I usually make a couple of hams, since none of us are fond of turkey. Spinach-laced mashed potatoes, yams, green bean casserole and dressing are typical sides.
My cooking triumphs
Beef stroganoff is one of my favorites, and I often experiment with the recipe to find new flavors. My other favorite is Flat-A***d Tacos. http://allrecipes.com/PersonalRecipe/34159478/FAT/Detail.aspx
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make abalone, after a successful diving trip. Might as well have tried to eat the soles of my boots... would have been more tender and twice as tasty!
