I cook for my family, my wife Kelly and my 2 girls Natalie and Olivia.....and Patrick!The guys are good with a little heat but the girls food cant be too spicy,too meaty or too much. That makes it hard when you like ribs, steak and lots of bbq. But I have come up with some great healthy recipes because of it. I now have a Big Green Egg Smoker/grill and love it. My BBQ Ribs just got kicked up another notch!
My favorite things to cook
BBQ ribs, Chicken, Pizza and lots of fish. These include Pompano, Blue fish Spanish Mackeral and and Salmon which I catch.I also like using my slow cooker in winter for Pulled pork, Chillies and soups like home made butternut squash .
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are a Christian family so on a special day like Christmas or Thanksgiving we begin by going around the table and stating what we are thankful to the Lord for.Its awkward at first for some guests but by the end they see how wonderful it can be and wow you hear some great stuff.
All the food is made by me, everything is home made including my cranberry sauce,12 hr brined Turkey and all the fixins......don't ya just love that word- Fixins! Starting off with a Butternut squash soup with a Port and Cranberry topping.....that would be the start of our tradition and definitely end off with my home made pumpkin pie or peach cobbler...Hungry yet!
My cooking triumphs
Red Cherry and Sausage with onions Pizza,
Smoked Pulled pork,
Kale and carrots with Almond butter
My cooking tragedies
My girls say when I’m under stress I shouldn't cook. So if certain people stress me out ...they ain"t comin for dinner. But we would love them to come for dessert cause we love every one!!!! Cheers
