About this Cook
Born in West Virginia, raised in Alaska, currently living in Scotland. I'm a computer game programmer by day, but love cooking for friends on weekends... whether it's over a campfire, a bbq grill, or the kitchen oven.
My favorite things to cook
Fresh Copper River Salmon
My favorite family cooking traditions
New Years day Spaghetti and Meatballs with a coin hidden in each meatball. At the end of the meal you put the coins on your window sill. That way, you're never completely broke ... because you always have that bit of cash on your window.
My cooking triumphs
2008 was my first attempt at preparing Thanksgiving dinner solo. It was also the first Thanksgiving meal for my 10 guests, and everything went perfectly!
My cooking tragedies
Nothing tragic... at least not yet.

Simple White Cake
Very easy to make. Excellent instructions. Delicious! I had to make a cake in a hurry and jumped online to quickly find a recipe. The ingredients are pretty basic, so I had everything I needed... and 45 minutes later we were sitting around eating birthday cake. Normally with such short notice I would have just stopped by the grocery store to pick one up, but that wasn't an option this time... and the best thing was that everyone seemed to enjoy this cake so much more than store bought.
