About this Cook
I'm a part time musician. A drummer in a rock and roll band. I'm also a stay at home house hubby!
My favorite things to cook
I'm a griller! Steak, chops, chicken, hamburgers, brats, hot dogs, shrimp, etc. If it's made of meat, I'll grill it! My spaghetti sauce is pretty good. My twice baked potatoes are pretty good too. I've been experimenting with the crock pot as of late, but I am more of a hands on, attentive kind of cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was a latch key kid raised by a bachelor father. I've been cooking and preparing meals for one or two people for most of my life. Our tradition? Survival!
My cooking triumphs
No one has yet died or become ill from my cooking!
My cooking tragedies
The occasional over cooking of meat on the grill, especially chicken. Raw chicken is just nasty and I tend to err on the side of too done.

Meatball Nirvana
Making these for dinner tonight. OMG! NOM NOM NOM!!!! I had to get out of the kitchen before I ate them all. Got them simmering right now in some Newman's Own "Sockarooni" sauce. I substituted the milk for one egg. This will be my meatball recipe forevermore!

Bow Tie Pasta with Sausage and Sweet Peppers
This recipe was a good base in which to put my own spin on things, like I always do. I used a Johnsonville Beef Sausage. Red, Green and Yellow Peppers, Onions, and Fresh Mushrooms. I used Tri-Color Rigatoni. Couple pinches of salt and pepper. Tbsp of garlic powder. Mixed everything together and let sit over low heat for about 30 minutes. Top with some grated parm cheese. Eat it up! Nom-nom-nom!

White Chili with Ground Turkey
Tried this tonight for something different. Like nearly all the recipes I find here, I fine tune it to my liking. Instead of turkey, I used 1lb of ground chicken. I used 4 cups of chicken broth, reserving 1/2 cup to add 2 tbsp corn starch and make a roux to add later to thicken it up a bit. 5 cups of broth will definitely make this, "soup." I didn't include chilis or add the jack cheese, but otherwise used the recipe as it stood. I thought it was delicious! Definitely a departure from my traditional "red" chili that I make. Which is exactly why my wife didn't care for this recipe. I would have given it 5 stars if she had liked it better. She said it was okay, but liked the "red" chili better. Definitely give this a try if you want a break from "red" chili, beef stew or chicken noodle soup on a cool evening.
