The Cooking Couple
About this Cook
We've been married for over 4 years. We have a handsome little man, running around, and a gorgeous little princess.
My favorite things to cook
Italian Pastas & Sauces, trying new things with chicken (mostly boneless) and fish. We love grilling (ribs, burgers, steaks, things of that nature). We love trying new things. And more recently I've hit a baking phase.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Zach's mom taught him how to make homemade Penne Pasta and Marinara sauce, which is one of our favorite meals. It's easy to prepare and after cooking all day its wonderful with a good loaf of french bread.
My cooking triumphs
Zach did Red-Wine marinated steaks in the oven, and because we were both underage he used red cooking wine. It was to die for, the steaks were extra tender after marinating in the wine and onions. And he topped it off with sautéed mushrooms and onions.

Wazzu Tailgate Chili
Our favorite! We're not super huge bell pepper fans so we skipped that, and instead of the super spicy habanero we used serrano. With the chili beans we used 1 hot and 2 mild, and instead of tomato paste and water we just used a second can of sauce.. since it's the same thing.. Other than that we stuck to the recipe, and it's always amazing.

Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce
I use this as a general guide for making my own. I use Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey bourbon in mine, using it while cooking down the onions and I also add it into the sauce. I also add some dried chipotle seasoning, garlic, pure maple syrup, honey and some crushed red pepper. I let it cook down and simmer per this recipe and then strain it.

Tomatoed Pork
Amazing dish! I did what another poster said and pretty much boiled the pork rather than fry it. Then continued the recipe as normal. The way I serve it is different. Instead of over rice or anything, I love it wrapped in a tortilla with cheese and sour cream.
