Three Children (Jared 8 yrs old, Ashlyn & Brooke (2 1/2 yrs)
My favorite things to cook
Fish (Pan Fried & Baked), Chili, Lasagna, Tacos, Steak, & Shrimp Creole. Hot dogs are not hard to cook, but being from Chicago, I make a mean Chicago Style Hot Dog with all the fixings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We just moved into our 'dream house' in October 2007. We held Thanksgiving for our family and it was fantastic in our new kitchen. So, we plan on making some of the receipes we used for our traditions.
My cooking triumphs
My wife & I made the recipe 'World's Best Lasagna' and we loved it. Thanksgiving 2007 we made various appetizer recipes and everyone in our family raved about how wonderful they all tasted. Also, I made the Southern Pulled Pork and it was the hit of our party. Everyone loved it.
My cooking tragedies
A really bad Chili once. (Added too much sugar.)
