I'm a geek - in the kitchen, on the computer, in the lawn... doesn't matter; I like fiddling with stuff, tweaking this and tuning that. When I am not on the keyboard being social - you can find a bunch of my social sites on my Google Profile at Google.com/profiles/stevengrovesaz - I am in the kitchen and if not there - well, then I'm somewhere else...
My favorite things to cook
Grilled foods and usually favor regional cuisine, but exploring more sauces and French cuisine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays - love having a dozen people over for Xmas breakfast. Mom used to do it, I did it for years and now my Nephew is picking up the torch.
My cooking triumphs
1) Fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp, including the noodles completely from scratch.
2) Poached Eggs Benedict and Crepes the same morning for my sons B'day, again all from scratch
My cooking tragedies
oh geez... burning the cheezy garlic bread - twice!
