I started out cooking when I was in elementary school. My mom is a beautician and got home late some evenings. It started as "Take the meatloaf out of the fridge and put it in the oven. Now turn the oven on to 350. I will be home in an hour.", and by high school it was, "There are ingredients in the fridge for meatloaf (spaghetti, bbq chicken....) and I will be home at 7".
My favorite things to cook
I am a typical guy... steak is always a favorite (I was a butcher in a gourmet shop for a couple of years). I also love pasta, mexican and especially southern comfort food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Vegatables and casseroles. My family is big on vegetables and casseroles for the hollidays.
