About this Cook
I am not a professional cook. I am a lawyer by day and family chef at night. Yes, this means that I do the cooking for the family. I enjoy cooking for big parties or jsut intimate evenings with a couple fo freinds or just my wife. I am always interested in trying new foods and new recipes. Cooking is my may of eliinating the stress that i get friom my work.
My favorite things to cook
Anything on the BBQ and the Smoker made by my friend Billy. I did help with the screws and saw for a few minutes.....
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have 2: Thanksgiving Turkey with my friend Billy which is put on the spit and then in the smoker. An incredible rotisserie/smoked bird! Way better than deep fired! Second is brisket (both traditional and smoked) and potato latkes made for 60-80 people every hannukah. My goo freind Mitch and I make the best you will ever taste!
My cooking triumphs
I ctered a women's birthday party for one of my wife's friends, some of whom do not eat meat. it was a great success! Creation of my very own recipe like nothing you've ever had that i call Swordfish Paradio.
My cooking tragedies
Baking is not my strong point, other than my apple pie. I tried to make a carrot cake from scratch without consulting a recipe and it was YUK! We had to go out and buy one.....

Jeanie's Falafel
Decent recipe but it fell apart while frying my first batch. This recipe needs a binding agent. I am not vegan so I used egg whites and the rest came out perfect!

Out of this World Turkey Brine
I WISH I COULD RATE THIS 10 STARS!!! Every Thanksgiving we have 40 people and do 3 turkeys in a roaster/smoker with light smoke. I decided to try this brine based on the reviews. We usually get great raves on our birds. Everyone said that these were the best we have ever done!! All of the leftovers were taken by our guests. I used garbage bags to seal in the brine. If you do this, make sure that you remove as much ari as possible from the bag and tie it good. I highly recommend this recipe.
