I've picked up the art of cooking again after my wife gave birth to our son seven months ago. With a little one, we can't afford to go out as much so I've tried to bring the gourmet home fresh out of my kitchen. I'm learning as I go and people keep wanting to eat my new experiments so that's a good thing!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything that tastes good and we're not allergic to or don't eat. I can't limit selections to favorites because then there's a limit on variety. I always try to mix it up so each night is something different even if the meat is the same.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's "Not-so Sloppy Joe's". I also love making traditional roasts with gravy and potatoes and cooked veggies. It's comfort food to server to friends and family.
My cooking triumphs
I just started baking and I made some Cinnamon Raisin cookies and some Yorkshire Pudding like Mom used to make. It's fun to bake new things and learn new recipes!
My cooking tragedies
I met my wife through an online video game that we play. The first night that I was moved in, I decided to make her favorite dinner, steak. I hadn't cooked anything in about 7 years and I was using a new stove to boot. It was bad...I think my sandals were more tender lol. Oh well, good times!
