I'm a former combat engineer for the U.S. Army. Since leaving the army on disability I've become a sort of house husband and this has left me with a lot of time on my hands to experiment in cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Honestly my favorite thing to cook is egg drop soup.
Other than that (because not even I can live on that alone) I love pasta and chicken. Whether it's a pasta dish, or a chicken dish, or a chicken and pasta dish, I'm happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking tradition would definitely have to be baking christmas treats with my mother.
I'm also very fond of just the traditional meals for the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs would have to be successfully making a thanksgiving dinner from scratch by myself, and the first time I made sushi with my wife.
It was almost a disaster but we had a blast and it ended up coming out pretty tasty.
My cooking tragedies
The first couple times I tried to make beef stew weren't horrible but they were pretty bland.
My first pumpkin pie using real pumpking came out so bad I got mad and threw it out the back door... the birds loved it though.
