About this Cook
As a child, our family owned a variety store, pre Wawa, 7-11 or Piggly Wiggly. In high school, I worked at a take-out seafood restaurant. I majored in Communications in college, worked radio and newspaper, but when my career in the newspaper ended, I went back to cooking. I worked as a cook at the Atlantic City International Airport in Pomona, N.J. and most recently worked for the summer at Bills Bar and Burgers at Harrah's in Atlantic City.
My favorite things to cook
Seafood, hamburgers, mac n cheese, Asian rice, pies, cookies and sweet breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hot dogs and eggs, a favorite breakfast item from my dad. Add cheese and/or onions as desired. From my mom, tuna fish, mushroom soup, peas and pasta. I learned to love fish at the age of 5 when my dad caught a perch from a river, cleaned and fried it up over and open flame. Fresh and flaky. Delicious, I will never forget it.
My cooking triumphs
Coconut custard pie, Key Lime pie, Hunter's Stew in cooking school, sweet bread (hand mix only!).
My cooking tragedies
When I was working the fyer at an Atlantic City casino, I had my back to the cooridor of the kitchen. I smelled burnt plastic. A voice in my head said, "Turn around." I had put some boxes of chicken fingers under the heat lamp, telling myself I would get them as soon as I got behind to the fyer. The boxes were burning up. We put them under water. One box was trashed; one saved. I under cooked fries once in my current job.

Stephen's Chocolate Chip Cookies
I followed the recipe until the chips and nuts came in. Instead of all that chocolate, I used a cup and a half of dark chocolate, 1/3 cup of cranberries and 1/3 of crushed walnuts. Not too sweet, just right. My wife said it was not too sweet. Even my wife liked it. Feel free to try it.

Chef John's Banana Bread
This by far is the best banana bread out there, taken if you love chocolate like my family does. Great banana bread taste, chocolate complements the sweet bread and makes it more moist. TIP: Only make by hand. If you use a Kitchen Aid, unless you know when to stop, it turn into mush in the middle that will never bake out. Do not over mix this recipe. You don't have to worry if you mix it by hand.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
I made this for neighbors who helped me in my family's fire. My next door neighbor loved it and here is what I did: Based on a cookie I had a local bagel joint, I added a cup of white chocolate chips to the recipie. It made it a touch sweeter and otherwise complemented the bread in a good way. I also, in the refurbished house, I had baking powder and no baking soda (I have it now), so I went online and tripled the baking powder and cut out half teaspoon of salt. Unbelievably moist and a hearty bread. I fully recommend it. You will score points at a family gathering. Try the cup of white chocolate chips. Score, indeed!
