I submitted a recipe for review last July and it still has not been looked at. How long does that take anyway?? Maybe its because I am a man..... just kidding!!! I am off work now for a little while. I figured this would be a good time to sit down and write down some of my recipes for… MORE

I love to cook. I have been cooking for years, but I can never follow any recipes. I am always modifying them to some degree.

Finally have a few days off so I can cook for the kids. I am planning to BBQ prime rib roast with yorkshire pudding along with greek salad. Probably put some corn on the cob on the grill too. I work long hours during the week, so large meals are not practical. Sometimes I will get the slow… MORE

About Me
I am a general Contractor that works in the Calgary area. I love to plan and cook complicated meals. It keeps my mind off the stresses of my trade. I will BBQ almost anything any time of the year. I will even BBQ in some winter storms. My mother taught me to start cooking when I was very young. She told me; "you may die lonely, but you will not die hungry".
My favorite things to cook
I tend to be more of a "meat and tateres" kind of guy. I do, however, cook or smoke other meals as well. Shrimp, Halibut, Crab legs, Turkeys, lamb, pork and chicken are all on my list too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Probably has to be my Turkey and homemade gravy. (I improved on preparation of the family gravy though).
My cooking triumphs
Complete Thanks giving dinners with all the homemade trimmings. I am very particular as to who gets to help me prepare it too.
My cooking tragedies
I still cannot get my Yorkshire Pudding to rise properly. I even bought a cast iron muffin tray hoping that would help, but it didn't.
