Father and husband who loves to cook. I started out trying to recreate my mom's best stuff but over the years have expanded to just about every taste and culture.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Cajun, anything Thai, anything Italian, anything BBQ. I love having an "all day" kitchen experience; slow cooking, braising, or outdoors BBQing or smoking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom's meatballs, clam casserole, and lasagna.
My cooking triumphs
-Grand Prize Winner 2008 "Pastapalooza" in Philadelphia for a cajun based pasta called "Eagles Draft Pasta" I created.
-Finalist of 2009 "Pastapalooza" in Philadelphia for an "Orzo Gumbo" dish I created.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot seem to make a decent grilled london broil!!!! No matter what I do it comes out as chewy as Bubble Yum!
