About this Cook
Started cooking at home by necessity. When I'd get home late from wrestling/football/track, I usually had to make my own dinner since it was after family dinner time.
My favorite things to cook
I particularly like to stir fry. I've tried many, many recipes (many several times) and haven't even come close to exhausting the possibilities. It's a great cuisine!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Probably the first venison roast of the season, usually 2 weeks after Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
My best large meals are Thanksgiving dinner (Turkey, et.al.) and Christmas dinner (Standing Rib Roast with Yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings). But others seem to really like my soups and casseroles for the combinations of flavors and textures.
My cooking tragedies
Luckily I haven't really had any of these.
Recipe Reviews 2 reviews
Having been born and raised in the Binghamton, NY area, I'm very familiar with Spiedies. The best ones were cooked over a small grill outside of small taverns on the north side of Endicott, NY (a stone's throw from Binghamton). Fresh herbs do not make a "real" spiedie, you must use dried for the authentic taste, and if it's not served on a slice of fresh Italian bread, again, it's not a spiedie. All of that said, this is a good recipe though the best are made with the Spiedie sauces made in the Binghamton area.
