I'm generally a home gourmet, with some catering experience and I'm usually available for catering 500 people or less. I have a food blog as well http://michaels-killer-recipes.blogspot.com/
My favorite things to cook
Scratch cooking with max flavor, and light on the fats. I try to use fats as I would herbs and spices- sparingly, but necessary to build depth of flavor. Lately I've been developing sauces to highlight meats and fishes that are very simply prepared. Wine and cherry sauces, blackberry and chipotle, etc. I love re-doing childhood favs with a more modern spin, and a bit more flavor!
My cooking triumphs
Beef stroganoff, red wine and cherry sauce (on my blog, http://michaels-killer-recipes.blogspot.com/ ), Swiss steak, Tex-Mex meatloaf, catering and knowing people enjoyed my food!
My cooking tragedies
Homemade mac-n-cheese! It just didn't turn out the way I hoped... too dry. But, try try try again, until I get it right.
