Not to put up the tree or to go over budget shopping for gifts.   It's not even the time of year to put lights up on the house.   After all, we  must respect the bird.  Right Doug?   No, it's the time of year again to get ready for Thanksgiving.   To get our grocery shopping done early and to… MORE

Yesterday was our big fundraiser breakfast at the museum next door and after the breakfast, it turns into Sunday Fun Day, which means several adult type beverages and this year I smoked a brisket, which was incredible.   My first shot at a… MORE

The snow is melting, the birds are returning and you can step out without being bundled up.   The sun is so warm and intense.   We've had 3 or 4 days about 50 now, which really made the snow vanish and the water run.   I love spring.Some of the water has to find it's way into my basement.  … MORE

I've always liked to cook, but never had much extra time for it until the last few years.   More on that later.   I recently found a printed recipe from AllRecipes.com dating back to 2006.   I had no idea that I had found this site way back then, but my first active involvement at AR, and… MORE

Every year for the last 4 years we have been celebrating our 4th of July in August sometime.   Whenever we can schedule it to fit everyone's schedule.   That's the date.   This tradition came about because Adam, who dates my daughter Alexis, runs a fireworks stand with his brother and sister.… MORE

The grill.   It's been a life-long struggle with me.   I started with the most widely used charcoal grill of all-time, the Weber.   Black, round, boring.  I started with this one because that's what my father-in-law used, and he could do absolutely anything with that thing.  Steaks, chops,… MORE

About Me
Dad of two great girls and husband to one equally great lady.
My favorite things to cook
I like Italian and Mexican. I enjoy a challenge and tend to move on once I have it mastered.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom taught all of us boys (and girls) to cook. It's always nice when Mom has us over and I get to carve the meat for her.
My cooking triumphs
My favorite triumphs are cooking twice for my daughters and their friends proms. Both years I served about 15 and stuck with my own Italian recipes. The kids all loved the meals. Now the girls (in college) and their friends try to make a point to come out for my cooking, which usually turns out! I love having them here and the cooking helps! Also once a year I have to make pies for a local fundraiser and last year, the old ladies thought I had bought the cheesecake with the pretty swirls and passed it off as my own. Nope. Sorry ladies!
My cooking tragedies
Yep, I've left the giblets in the bird once. I also believed the pop-up thermometer one time when I shouldn't have. Yea, and I did a rotisserie chicken in 7 minutes flat. Forgot to turn the grill down from preheating. That wasn't pretty.
