As I have grown older, I have found that the activities that once gave me that adrenalin rush no longer has that attraction. I just couldn't find that sensation in jumping out of perfectly good air planes or scuba diving or trying to bowl that ever elucive perfect 300 game. But it wasn't until I stumbled onto the Food Network and then my wife sent me a link to allrecipes that I started getting that feeling again. Sounds strange, but it was like that first egg on a gas stove that my Mother taught me to cook. What a rush!!
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy grilling my version of the basic burger; steaks on the grill in the dead of winter is something that my family and friends can't wait for.
My favorite family cooking traditions
In my family, my father had always prepared and cooked the turkey at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have carried on that tradition. My kids are all grown, but on those holidays, they know Dad is cooking and the turkey is to die for.
My cooking triumphs
White Chocolate Cheesecake; and the moistest turkey you could imagine
My cooking tragedies
Going to the store and leaving my ex-wife to tend the grill. The meal was ruined. And yes, I take the blame!!
