For me, it was The Galloping Gourmet and my mother.
My mother was always a good cook, so she was my real world example, but later I began to watch The Galloping Gourmet on TV after school (That's what 3 TV channels will get ya!). I loved watching him cook all the gourmet dishes. It looked so…
I love trying new recipes. I don't cook during the week due to the time I get home. But I always like to try a new recipe on the weekend.
My favorite things to cook
I love all cuisines. The only one that I have not had a chance to try is Indian cuisine. No one has asked me to make it, and the spices were usually too much for the kids and wife.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like to make Pennsylvania Dutch chicken pot pie during the winter. It's a great comfort food. Also, it's traditional for me to make a large bowl of my mother's potato salad during the summer, and whether it's true or not, I'll say, "This is the best one that I've ever made." :D
My cooking triumphs
Anything that I make that doesn't burn and is still edible with some good flavoring is a triumph. :D
My cooking tragedies
Tragedy? Nothing that bad. I can't remember the dish, but it had scallops and shrimp in it, and it was a Latin cuisine dish. I ate it the first night, but I just didn't enjoy it. I ended up throwing it out in a few days, and no one in the house would touch it. LOL
