My favorite things to cook
Baked Beans, Beanless Chili, Prime Rib, Cabbage Rolls, Crab & Shrimp, Spiced seared meats, bisque, and duck.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom taught me Cabbage Rolls, Spaghetti, and Chili so those are my 'go to' recipes that I fall back on.
My cooking triumphs
The toughest challenge was my attempt at Dim Sum! - BBQ Pork Steamed Buns and Walnut Glazed Shrimp. For a first attempt, it was very tasty!
Another would be a 5lb Garlic Prime Rib that I made. I was so nervous at roasting a $40 piece of meat that I would ruin it, but it turned out PERFECT. I've made it several times since then and still a winner.
My cooking tragedies
Followed a Hot and Sour soup recipe on here once, it smelled and tasted so bad. It filled up the whole house with a rancid smell that took hours to get rid of. My fiancee and I still laugh about it. Still seeking a good recipe.
