About this Cook
recently single, I enjoy cooking a big meal on the weekend to last a couple of meals during the week - particularly like to roast big pieces of meat
My favorite things to cook
roasts with an ethnic kick; Cuban pork, Mexican beef, Italian chicken - reading a recipe and then trying it my way
My favorite family cooking traditions
lots of dips for all the big games with my sons and grilling turkey for a big holiday meal - a bottle of port for the bird and one for the chef
My cooking triumphs
I am writing a series of fictional stories all in the guise of a cook book - the fictional cook has far flung tales organized around recipes from different locals and occaisions

Shredded Beef Chimichangas
baking not frying is brilliant and produces a crisp tortilla to compliment the soft meat - I made two changes; I used pork roast instead of beef and I made congri (a type of black beans and rice) to go with the pork- topped with sour cream and salsa with a congri side made a great, hearty meal
