My favorite things to cook
I can cook a good breakfast, make a mean sandwich and overall can survive in the kitchen. I like appetizers and cuts of meat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking tradition would be to make sure my kids know how to BBQ. Especially chicken to make sure it is cooked thoroughly and is not dried out. Bacon is another tradition that is a must.
My cooking triumphs
Using recipes here on AR has helped me make what I love.
My cooking tragedies
My wife didn't like it when I was steaming clams and the broth bubbled up and literally steamed out all over the stovetop. According to her also my scrambled eggs used to be thin and choppy now they are fluffy and thick. Also I can make everyone an overeasy egg but when it comes to making mine, the yoke always breaks.
