About this Cook
I love to cook - plain and simple. I am far from a great cook, but I enjoy the whole process; from deciding the menu, to shopping in the markets for the ingredients, to preparing the meal, and last, but far from least, sitting down with family and friends and eating. I will never be a "chef", but I will always enjoy cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love learning new receipes. I have been fortunate to live in many different countries and I try to get local receipes for whatever region I am in.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My wife and I get into the kitchen together and have always loved cooking together. When we were dating, rather than go out somewhere, we would get together and cook a great (most of the time) meal and then spend the evening together eating and talking. We still love bumping into each other in the kitchen.

Teriyaki Sauce and Marinade
Quick and easy...had to add some cornstarch to get it to thicken up for a sauce on chicken, though.
