My name is Wayne
About this Cook
Born and raised in Utah, I had the chance to travel around Europe and the Middle East from 1991 to around 2007. I enjoyed eating, but later came to enjoy mimicking my favourite travel dishes just as much.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking from scratch. No tins or boxes for me!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I would say my favourite tradition is simply cooking for others.
My cooking triumphs
I have been asked to cook for others a second time. Ha!
My cooking tragedies
LOL! I have set three kitchens on fire, caused an oven to explode when making whiskey marinated ribs, melted a slow cooker (honestly!), and my hands are covered in burns and scars. BUT... the food always tasted excellently!

Chicken Fried Venison Steaks
I loved this recipe! the coating was crispy, the meat succulent and tender, and the gravy was divine. I am not a fan of chicken fried recipes, but this almost reminded me of a schnitzel, and was heavenly in every mouthful!

Spicy Baked Feta (Feta Psiti)
I love baked feta, and was really looking forward to trying this recipe out, and I was definitely not disappointed. The balance of salt from the cheese, spice from the chilies, and the herbal aroma of the oregano hit the spot. But... I gave it three stars because although I enjoyed it, the flavour was a bit plain. I added some crushed garlic, and a bit of rosemary, and felt the recipe was better rounded for the changes. But since I am judging on the recipe as it, it was just a bit of a single note, so only three stars.

Bangers and Mash
This is NOT bangers and mash. Rather, it is a low rent version of a shepherd's pie. Bangers and mash is a dinner of sausages with mashes potatoes on the side, served with a tasty gravy. A true bangers and mash does not call for mixes or premade gravy. As for taste, it was mediocre at best.
