About this Cook
Grew up working as server/bartender/manager in restaurants and clubs.
My favorite things to cook
I'm pretty good at saute dishes. Grilling about anything, new favorite is grilled romaine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm usually called upon or volunteer to cook for family functions.
My cooking triumphs
Have the preparing of Prime Rib down to a science, thanks to Alton Brown.
My cooking tragedies
I can't cook the simple things w/o instructions or input from my wife, things like white rice, mashed potatoes, easy stuff that anyone would be able to do.

Thai Chicken Tenders
I try a lot of new things, but unfortunately this turned out to be a pretty bad dinner. The sauce is too much of a paste. Sorry if that is what is intended, but just didn't care for this dish. After reading all of the reviews, I need to add that I did add the water and some soy sauce and mentioned to my wife that minced garlic may help. Just wanted to clarify!

Grilled Mustard Potato Salad
Great side dish for grilling. Took to a suprise b-day party and it was a hit. Did add fresh herbs on other occasions. Thanks!

Champagne Shrimp and Pasta
This dish is awesome! My wife invited a good friend over for dinner and she was floored by how delicious the pasta dish turned out. The only thing I did a little different was to add the shallots after removing the mushrooms, with just a little bit more olive oil and "sweated" them for just a couple of minutes, then added the champagne (also added the fresh garden tomatoes right before serving)...Thanks for sharing such an awesome recipe!!!
