I had a roommate a few years ago and he was a great cook. I guess it just inspired me to learn and become a bit of competition. It has worked out well so far.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make anything with a sauce. I love layers of flavor. Pork is probably my favorite meat to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was a horrible cook, but she tried. And it seemed like she just got worse. But my dad saved the day and introduced us to saute. Life has been better ever since.
My cooking triumphs
Rotisserie WHOLE leg of lamb and rotisserie lamb roast! This turned out fabulous for a housewarming BBQ. It was marinated in a Chianti with fresh basil, mint, and catnip. :)
My cooking tragedies
The first time my dad was late and needed me to make dinner, he walked me through it on the phone and told me how to do everything and somehow I managed to burn the chicken and the bread. The rice was undercooked and my our dog Boo wouldn't even eat the chicken.
