I'm a Presbyterian minister, husband, and father of two teenagers. After 14 years of marriage my wife and I discovered that *she* liked to do the yard work and *I* liked to do the cooking, so we switched. A pretty good deal for her, I think, but I'm happy.
My favorite things to cook
I love looking in the fridge and cupboards to see what we have and then assembling an interesting and tasty meal from whatever I find.
My favorite family cooking traditions
These days I love that everyone in the family, including the teenagers, cooks something for holiday feasts!
My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving turkey; roasted garlic and brie soup; the first time I baked bread from scratch; sauteed summer squash medley, and more.
My cooking tragedies
Three of note:
1) when I burned a couple racks of ribs with a big crowd over for Labor Day
2) when I grabbed the ground cloves instead of chili powder for the taco meat
3) when I followed the recipe and put 1/4 cup of salt in a peanut butter - orange marmalade glaze for 4 catfish fillets
