I grew up in California, went to the Navy and now live in Virginia Beach. I cook because I really love the taste of food. I love being able to cook something fairly good for you, while making it taste good.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican and Asian cuisine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family tradition was to never have the same thing at Christmas. We also loved to grill our breakfast and to eat breakfast as dinner.
My cooking triumphs
I cooked an awesome chicken soup that would make Rachael Ray cry. I'm working on a triumph though with my "real pizza burgers."
My cooking tragedies
Because I am still new, I pretty much stick to the recipes. I guess my tragedy to note is that I still stick to the recipes and haven't developed a style of my own.
