I grew up in grandmas kitchen and by watching and learning from both mom and grandma I knew how to cook. When I went to college I worked in my families restaurant (Greek-Italian). Now as a single man I never worry about a meal. In the summer I have my famous 4th of July BBQ with ribs , chicken and hotdogs I actually get people making reservations to be invited because I can only have 10 people on my deck! What a compliment!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking on the grill! I love making the usual steaks,burgers,dogs,ribs and fish. I also make my fries on the grill along with perogies baked taters in fact I make everything on the grill that can be made inside on the stove. I also made my first pizza this year on the grill! It was great but I needed to make it a little bit smaller! I also love to make the usual pasta... homemade sauce from tomatoes from my garden and homemade noodles. I also love to make soups and stews and learning now to make more things in the crock pot!
My favorite family cooking traditions
all the major holidays special occasions and any other excuse to cook and be with family and friends was a tradition in itself!
My cooking triumphs

My cooking tragedies
