About this Cook
I am married for almost 40 yrs to mbfe. We have been cooking together for the past 10 years and are really enjoying our creations.
My favorite things to cook
I mostly like to bake, but I do love trying new sauces and side dishes. My partner loves to cook the meats, so it works in the end.
My favorite family cooking traditions
None really. my mom cooked to feed us not for taste. (sounds mean but it is true) we ate things like chipped beef, tuna casserole and plain baked chicken. Boring
My cooking triumphs
The wedding cakes I made for my brother and my daughter
My cooking tragedies
Not teaching my daughters how to cook.

Chef John's Italian Meatballs
Very good tasting. The only thing is that if you bake them like we always do, they flatten out.

Wine Baked Potato
I liked the idea of this recipe, it just lacked a few basics. As many before stated adding S&P is a must. I also added minced garlic( by "minced" I mean using a micro-plainer and grating each bulb right into whatever you'd like) and I made it 1/4 cup Chardonnay instead of the cooking sherry. One last difference, I brushed with the butter/garlic, then "pre-cooked them in the micro for 5 mins. Then I topped them with shredded Cheddar Cheese, wrapped them loosely in foil and baked at 400* for 20 mins. Perfecto! My entire family really liked them. I am sure this is now a family favorite. Thanks for the original idea.
