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.
