My name is David. I have a beautiful wife and 4 boys (2 teens, 2 toddlers) and I'm currently stationed in Maryland with the Air Force. My wife is an AWESOME cook and I'm able to create decent meals from scratch when needed but they are NO WHERE near my wife's level.
My favorite things to cook
I really like to work with chicken breasts and ground beef. I'm trying to expand my abilities by trying to make more Italian and Asian dishes. I will admit though, I'm good when it comes to MEXICAN because that's my background.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is from deep-South Texas and we are big on family get-togethers with lots of Mexican food. I'm good when it comes to making rice, beans, and the usual dishes but would like to expand my abilities.
My cooking triumphs
I made a roast for the first time about a month ago and it came out AMAZING! Also, I made chili and even baked a ham for the first time in the past 2 weeks so I'm feeling pretty confident.
My cooking tragedies
It hurts so much to admit it and I feel like I'm letting down my fellow Texans but I can't BBQ. :( I mean, I can make the usual burgers and hotdogs and all but when it comes to steaks and chicken, I'm pretty lost. Just ask my wife and she'll admit that I look like a scared puppy when it comes to using the grill.
