About this Cook
Grew up in Buffalo, NY until after college. Moved to Raleigh, NC where I lived for about 8 years after that - living in Raleigh and working in Chapel Hill. Learned the complexities of the eastern vs. western NC BBQ debate. Moved to Seattle in Aug 2005 and am now learning a whole new set of recipes utilizing PNW ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
Buffalo Chicken Wings Kal Bi (Korean BBQ) Homemade Spaghetti Sauce w/ meatballs Shrimp & Tuna Macaroni Salad Chicken Soup with dumplings Shish-ka-bob (beef/chix/shrimp/veggie) Clambake!
My favorite family cooking traditions
wake up on a Sunday, and spend all day making a huge batch of spaghetti sauce with meatballs (accompanied by a bottle of red wine in the process!)
My cooking triumphs
20# deep fried turkeys batches and batches of Buffalo Wings with no equal! Fresh and steamed east coast clams with all the trimmings
My cooking tragedies
20# deep fried turkey (and 1 deep fried deck)

Never Fail Biscuits
great and simple recipe for breakfast biscuits from scratch I skipped the cream of tartar. Let's face it, who has any of that in an average pantry? Frankly i just skipped entirely and the biscuits were great!
