About this Cook
I love to cook and try new things, which makes my wife very happy. :)
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything, but especially Italian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Grandma Jane's pecan pie!
My cooking triumphs
Homemade ravioli in marinara sauce, all from scratch. So delicious, but so time-consuming to make, I've only made it a few times.
My cooking tragedies
Creamed chipped beef. It looked and tasted like wallpaper paste. Ugh.

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken
Delicious, and so easy to make! It's amazing how far this will stretch your chicken, but it's so good the leftovers don't last long.

Lamb Shawarma
I made it exactly as per the recipe, except that I cooked the sliced meat on skewers over the grill instead of in a pan. I served it with rice, yogurt/cucumber sauce, sliced tomatoes and onions, and grilled pita with hummus. Nom, nom, nom! It was, in a word, delicious. The leftovers didn't last long because I kept sneaking pieces of meat. Even cold it was delicious. Next time I'll have to make a double batch.

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting
I hoped this frosting would be good, but it way exceeded my expectations. It was delicious! The perfect accompaniment to the strawberry cake I used it on. Not the easiest frosting to make, but worth the effort.
