Im a young cook, who learned most of his skills from picking up the phone and calling family and THE FOOD NETWORK! I have a tivo full of shows like Food 911, 30 minute meals, Paula's Home Cooking and Good Eats! Over the past 10 years of being independant i have learned through trial and error and personal preferences. People really enjoy coming to my house because they know they'll never leave hungry!
My favorite things to cook
Grilled Chicken, Grilled Salmon, Pork Chops, Steak, Shrimp.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Holidays are a huge ordeal for my family because we get the opportunity to cook together. I personally look forward to this most of all because i learn something new every year.
My cooking triumphs
My first Christmas dinner was last year and it came out WONDERFUL! I started cooking 2 days before and managed to do a great job (if i say so myself). I managed to hit all the old family favorites with a new twist and everyone was completely amazed. Its always nice to finally prove to the family that i CAN cook!
My cooking tragedies
I think my worst tragedy was the time i started making dinner because i was expecting friends over and i had 4 burners going and chicken in the oven. I stepped out of my townhouse to put a bag of garbage on the corner and i realized that i had locked myself out! Needless to say an hour later when i got back in the house, The pizza guy made it there in time that i never had a chance to get disappointed.
