My background is in architecture but I mostly enjoy my work as a paranormal investigator. Our meetings and investigations usually involve good company and good food.
I've never been interested in cooking though I've gotten into the kitchen a time or two. My wife is an excellent cook and baker but after being laid off in 2009, boredom got the best of me and I got into the kitchen one afternoon....the rest is history.
My favorite things to cook
I've always enjoyed cooking up scrambled eggs in melted butter with grated or shredded cheddar cheese. Even though I don't do it often, I'd say this is one of my favorites to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday mornings making scrambled eggs and biscuits (from a can) with our former foster daughter was a favorite tradition. Traditionally, my wife made all the Christmas cookies herself but hopefully now we'll be making them together.
My cooking triumphs
My scrambled eggs are the very best I've ever had. But recently, I made pecan crusted chicken skewers for our anniversary and I think they turned out pretty good.
My cooking tragedies
I've tried to make white chocolate fudge with red and green cherries a couple years in a row and failed miserably both times despite having followed the recipe to the letter. The gooey results were disheartening and I won't be making any more attempts.
