Livin' the dream
About this Cook
Passionate, impractical, still slightly adolescent and naive, but only because I choose to see the brighter side of things.
My favorite things to cook
Being a busy dude I don't have a ton of time to spend cooking, but when I do I love to make pizza, italian, mexican, thai, szechuan. I love cooking, I find it very relaxing and the end result is always worth the effort. It's all in the details.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lasagna night at mom's house. Nothing in my world was better than lasagna night lol.
My cooking triumphs
Moving out for my first time 4 years ago and surviving haha. Slowly working on eating healthier all the time. My most recent triumph is having a well-stocked fridge full of a wide variety of food I cooked to last me for two weeks.
My cooking tragedies
I honestly don't remember many. I try to forget the bad times and remember the good ones, but if I had to dig through the vault I'd say it would have to be watery pasta sauce because I ran out of tomato paste. I used to have a lot of vegetables spoil on me because I would get too eager when I see ripe produce and then end up not being able to use it all in time.

Bacon, Potato, and Egg Taco Ole
I love breakfast tacos and they're one of the things I miss the most about Texan cuisine. To make this a little bit more lively, don't forget to add a dusting of chili powder & a touch of cumin!! Also, spicy chorizo from your local market also makes a great substitute for bacon!! These are complemented very well by some good salsa. Thanks!

Emily's Chipotle Chili
I thought this was great, however next time I will probably omit entirely the 1tsp of salt - I found it to be quite salty, even though I made sure to use low-sodium ingredients where possible. Overall I thought it was great, but not quite spicy enough with mild italian sausage and 2 adobo peppers. The only other changes I made were instead of using two lbs of meat I opted to use an extra can of black beans as I prefer to lean slightly more to the vegetarian side of things.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue
My Dad was in town and being super busy with everything I didn't have a lot of time to make a great meal but this fit the bill perfectly. I followed the directions and used my fav Bullseye Hickory Smoke bbq sauce. It turned out amazing. Served it with fresh corn on the cob and baked potatoes. Everyone loved it! Thanks for an awesome easy recipie!
