About this Cook
Cooking is just a hobby for me. I am a married Professional and my wife and I are both very busy. Cooking is a way for me to try new things and relieve some stress.
My favorite things to cook
Chili is my hands-down favorite. But I also enjoy grilling, creating dry rubs and marinades and recently I have been experimenting with soups.
My cooking triumphs
I don't know if I would call them "triumphs", but everyone raves about my dry rubs and marinades that I use when grilling. Most are low/no salt yet delicious.
My cooking tragedies
Hey, you can't have success without failing. Right!?

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili
This really is the best chili recipe I have ever tasted. And everyone that tries it absolutely loves it. Here is a tip - to make it healthier, go for the "low sodium" beans and other ingredients. You can also try turkey sausage instead of pork and use the leanest ground beef you can find. You will never taste the difference and it will trim out a lot of the fat and sodium in this recipe. Also - make sure you make extra. This only gets better as it ages and you can enjoy it for a week.

Washabinaros Chili
Don't be afraid of the ingredients or the complexity. This one is worth the time! I have cooked several great chili recipes off of this site, but this one takes the cake. So flavorful with just the right amount of spiciness. The Wasabi is barely noticeable, and people who do not like Wasabi will still love this chili. It will last for about a week and gets even better with age.

Tortilla Soup II
This one is a little bland for me. I tried adding some salt, but it is missing the traditional Mexican flavors you expect in a Tortilla soup. Very healthy and low in fat, but also a little low on flavor. I think that other recipes with more ingredients would get better results, but would take longer to make. One more point - this recipe does not allow for the cooking time of the chicken. You have to boil and shred it before adding it to the broth, so allow 15-20 mins for that.
