Married, with 2 kids 11-13 living in St. Petersburg Fl. My Pet Peeve, People who alter a recipe, then rate the recipe. Guess what guys, it's not an accurate rating, as you've just rated your recipe. Not theirs.
My favorite things to cook
It would have to be Peasant Food as its' simple and delicious and great to serve for a crowd.
Cajun for their deliciously bold flavors and many one pot meals, and Italian, for their simplistic and delicious rustic style of cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My moms homemade easter eggs, that taste like mounds candy bars. My entire family going over to our mom's house for Thanksgiving and Christmas and eating. (40+ of us)
My cooking triumphs
Too many to remember em all.
My cooking tragedies
We were hosting Thanksgiving for the in-laws and my buddy who had never fried a turkey before suggested we fry one, so I bring him a turkey 15 miles away and he cooks it while I stand around and wait. He announces the time is up. I ask, are you sure? it's only been like 75 minutes. He says yes. positive. Ok, I get it home, place it on the serving tray, and cut into it and its bloody and raw in the center. We had to microwave it bits at a time to finish it as everything else was ready to go. Not good.
