About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
CAJUN then comfort. Love to harvest food from the land or sea and cook it on the spot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday dinner. We have busy lives. Safe to say, too busy. I got to a point 7 years ago, when I decided we had to MAKE time to spend together as a family. Starting at noon on Sunday we hit the market for provisions for the week and something special for dinner. We have family over and try to include a "special guest". Someone from work or someone having a tough time. Someone who needs to get a dose of "normalcy" or just someone we want to put a hand out to. It's the highlight of my week.
My cooking triumphs
Grand champion of the search for Anchorage's best Omelet (King crab & Smoked Salmon)

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks
What a nice change up for a great cut of meat! I am old school at the grill (seasoned salt, PERIOD!) My wife requested a more exotic approch. What a nice supprise! Followed the directions to the letter and see no reason to change it up.
