Californian Dude. Loves to make food that pleases my pallet! I do not care about fat so much, but I do try to watch the portions I take in and it works out well!
My favorite things to cook
Onions! I love them and they go with almost everything! Garlic as well, living close to Gilroy, CA I've been spoiled.
My favorite family cooking traditions
As far as family foods I like, my mothers meatloaf is one. My girlfriends Grandmother has a delicious recipe called Chicken Genoa which is in(will be) my recipes. It is my own modified version, thanks to reviews from this site!
My cooking triumphs
Hmmm, I'd say learning to cook to the point where I can improvise and put my own twist on things. Also I enjoy never measuring whatever I make 8) unless of course its baking which my pastry chef girlfriend likes to remind me, its a science.
My cooking tragedies
Overcooking onions! My favorite food destroyed =\ a sad day.
