About this Cook
My wonderful wife does most of the cooking for our family, but I like to research recipes carefully and put together special meals that make my family and guests go, "Wow"! Doing a good job on a meal for others is a great way to show them I love them. Cutting costs by cooking from scratch helps too.
My favorite things to cook
Authentic Chicago-style pizza, anything on my gas grill, bread
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to cook, and I enjoy family history, so reproducing family recipes combines these interests.
My cooking triumphs
Born and raised in Chicago, making good pizza is a very serious endeavor. The look on people's faces when they take their first bite of my pizza is so rewarding.
My cooking tragedies
I vaguely remember my first attempt at following a recipe when I was a boy. I substituted baking soda for baking powder because they sounded a lot alike.

Soft-N-Fluffy Hamburger Buns
These have worked well for us for hamburgers and paninis. We get about eight decent-sized buns out of this recipe.
