About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
I can't make pancakes! The first time I tried in college I put 1/2" of oil in the pan and got fritters! Never have lived it down.

Burgundy Stroganoff
Great recipe! I used sirloin, cabernet and light sour creambecause that is what I had on hand. Plus the ever present "better than boullion" beef base that I always have on hand. I added about a half cup of water and covered the pan for the 45 minute simmer just to make sure it didn't dry out. Added a bit of kosher salt at the end. End result was velvety smooth and rich! Shockingly enough my two kids (age 11 and 8) also loved it and I did not have to pull out the emergency chicken nuggets for them! :)

Chinese Barbequed Spareribs
Great flavor, but I based on other reviews I was expecting finger lickin' sauce. I marinated them in the "stuff" for a few hours, having taken other reviewers suggestions and stabbing the meat all over with fork so it would infuse. That definitely happened, but there wasn't any "sauciness". Fixed that by heating the leftovers up the next day in the Rice Vinegar Basting Sauce also on this site.
