I am CEO of an Internet marketing company - http://www.AnythingInternet.com. I have a weekly radio show in Houston, which is really fun.
I am happily married. No kids. I enjoy chess, travel, and tech stuff.
My favorite things to cook
I live in Texas, so I enjoy my BBQ pit. I have a Traeger Pellet Grill. It's an amazing smoker. I cook pulled port, briskets, steaks, ribs, and all the usual stuff. Love it!!
Otherwise, I general favor foods with a lot of flavor. Garlic, red pepper, onions, etc.
I used to prepare gourmet desserts. I even won a cooking contest with one of them. But since I am diabetic, I got tired of giving the deserts away. So I prepare desserts less often.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Stuffed sweet potatoes.
Oven baked beans.
Butterscotch cream pie.
Biscuits and gravy. Yeah baby!
I mix it up -- so not that many traditionals.
My cooking triumphs
I won a baking contest with a Key Lime Torte. Wonderful cake. It wasn't my recipe, but I'll take credit for the win.
My chili recipe is the best on the planet. I don't care what anyone out there claims. My chili rocks!
My cooking tragedies
Thanksgiving 2010, I couldn't find a recipe for a dish we make every year, so I did it from memory. I blew it big time. It's the first dish I've really blown in as long as I can remember. Some things are bad - but this was impossible to eat. Oops!
