About this Cook
20+ year Army vet, retired. Work in healthcare. Love doing things with family and friends. If I didn't do the Army for so long I would have liked to go to the CIA (Culinary Institue of America of course)!
My favorite things to cook
Anything that is tasty. Love italian, mexican, french and southern USA foods. Easy or hard doesn't matter as long as you get it right.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is my favourite meal to prepare. Love my southern mom and grandma's influences, they make the best stuffing, pies and sides. Everyone wants to come to my house for turkey day. Love cooking with Dad around the campfire. He has inspired myself and 2 brothers to be the best cooks in our households (sorry Honey). Love doing dutch ovens, open fire grills and griddles for big family breakfasts camping in the beautiful mountains of Utah.
My cooking triumphs
Gravy. In my family if you can't make biscuits and gravy you are in trouble. My mom and dad let me make it in their house, huge props from the folks. Best chili of everyone I know, I am going to try my hand in a couple of local contests this year and see if it is as good as I hear.
My cooking tragedies
Tortillas. My mom makes the best in America and my never turn out :-(

Aloo Gobhi
This was delicious! Just what I was looking for. My girls couldn't get enough. I used 2 Thai chiles and it really kicked up the heat level but not too much to enjoy. Thanks SUSMITA, great recipe!

Gyoza Sauce
This recipe is awesome. The only tweak I made was doing 1/4 C vinegar and 1/4 C Aji-mirin...gave the sauce a little bit of sweetness but it is awesome on pot stickers, thanks Rebecca!
