Just a guy who moved with his wife and children from Iowa to Minnesota, and then to Missouri. Perhaps we realized that our first move was the wrong direction. :-)
My favorite things to cook
Chili, stir-fry, teriyaki chicken, sushi
My favorite family cooking traditions
One of my favorites growing up was when my grandmother would make a huge pot of chops sui or chili.
My cooking triumphs
I made a good Irish stew a while back.
My cooking tragedies
I think that same Irish stew was also a failure, because it was too bitter for many.
