About this Cook
I love music-mostly country and rock, but sometimes contemporary and classical too. I play acoustic guitar and sing and I'm a clogger. I've been part of a 5-couple wine tasting group for nearly 20 years and I love spectator sports, particularly baseball and football.
My favorite things to cook
I generally do stir-fries, assorted pasta dishes and I'm really into all ethnic foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Really don't have any traditions, other than corned beef and cabbage every St. Patty's Day. Guess I started that almost 40 years ago when I was a counselor/teacher in an Irish Catholic School in Syracuse, NY---St. Patrick's!
My cooking triumphs
Cooked my stir-fried orange pork on Seattle PBS channel and I've had a number of my original recipes published. Even won a recipe contest conducted by St. Supery Winery in the Napa Valley.
My cooking tragedies
I'm afraid they're all concealed in my sub-conscious, never to resurface, I hope!

Half Time Hoisin Chicken Wings
Took these wings to a Superbowl party on 2/2/14 to watch our Seahawks kick the Broncos' butts! Everyone loved the wings. I ran out of my chile/garlic sauce, so squirted in some Siracha. Could have used more, as the wings weren't spicy enough for me. But they sure are tasty. Also rather than laying the wings on the pan and then brushing them with sauce, I threw them all in a large bowl with the sauce and just bathed them in it. Knocked off the extra and laid them individually and already sauced on the pan. Yum!!

Kale Soup
Very tasty, but I modified it a little. I used one can red kidney beans and one can cannelini (white kidney beans). I also had thick boneless pork chops in the freezer that I needed to use, so I cut two of them into small chunks and used them instead of bone-in chops. Finally, I replaced the Pimenta Moida with two whole jalapenos that I cut long slits in to release their heat. When left whole, they're easier to remove after they've done their job.

Swordfish Calabrian Style
I'd have to agree with some of the other comments about the reviewer who thought the fish was rubbery. They must be cooking-challenged or maybe they used inferior quality fish. I made this last night and my wife and I both loved it! It's light, but filling and totally delicious! definitely a keeper. I used butter beans instead of favas, but any meaty bean would work. I also suspect that halibut would work great if you can't find swordfish. Nice work, Salvatore! YUM!!!!
