About this Cook
I cook on weekends only. I take over the kitchen both to give my wife a break and because I really enjoy it.
My favorite things to cook
I recognize that there is a difference between cooking and baking but my favorite thing to "make" is Cheesecake. I'm on a vision quest for perfection.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I drink a lot of wine when I cook so even if the dish doesn't turn out as planned I'm still a lot of fun at the dinner table.
My cooking triumphs
I aim for simplicity with ingredients I know the kids like. I don't get many opportunities to cook for the family so any time they really like something I've made I consider it a triumph.

Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms
Other than conversion to beef broth/fresh mushrooms (baby bella) for canned suggested by others, stayed with the recipie as is. Served over rice but mashed potato or egg noodles would be great too I'm sure. We're a family of six and I made enough for 8 portions. Gone... This one made the rotation after one shot. Delicious.

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
