About this Cook
I'm of Armenian decent. Daughter (8) and Son (6) are pretty good eaters (they'd better be or they're gonna starve!). I'm a raisin grower and own/operate a swimming pool service company. I used to cook for the guys of SAE at Fresno State. Mom was the best cook that never made a dime from it. I learned from her. I also do the shopping looking for good ingredients ON SALE. Some people need to learn this. Besides listed activities we motorhome it for our vaykays and ski; water and snow. Life is good... if you have good food.
My favorite things to cook
Can't narrow it down. I like/want it all. Probably old Armenian recipes but time is tight these days.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Rolled non-meat grapeleaves. Lamb. Eggplant. Grilled chicken.
My cooking triumphs
Our wedding (divorced), rice pilaf and shish kebab (boned out, trimmed and cubed 30 legs of lamb). Still love that type of dinner but got rid of wife.
My cooking tragedies
Never had any... yeah, right! The point is to adapt and DON'T PANIC. You can save it. How do you think we got Blackened Cajun foods? Hmmm?

Greyhound Cocktail
One of the few cocktails I like (whiskey neat man). As shown I know it as a Salty Dog. Anyway it's done I like it. No sugar though. HANGOVER!

Mushroom Slow Cooker Roast Beef
This is abysmal. What a waste. Barbaric. A ruined rib roast and a ruined pot roast (use chuck next time). I gave it one star because I couldn't give it 0.

Dark Chocolate Chipotle Cookies
I'm going to bake these this weekend when the Kids are Home. I'll add raisins (pasas) and pumpkin seeds (pepinos). This reads like a keeper!
