I am a high school teacher in Baltimore City who wishes that he had more time and a better kitchen for cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Greek chicken, lasagna, soups, chili, and other "homey" foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Greek chicken and Spinach and rice... my traditional birthday meal for as long as I have been requesting one. Oh, and in my family, you never, NEVER, cut your spaghetti at the table!
My cooking triumphs
Making a tuna casserole (from scratch) that was actually the best I have ever tasted. Also, just being able to regularly impress people who have no idea that I can cook (mostly my family.)
My cooking tragedies
No real tragedies to speak of yet,... but there have been plenty of mediocre dishes that I thought should have been great.
