About this Cook
I am a father of 3 who works for a living. I am the cook in the family, so I usually come home from work and go straight into the kitchen. I guess we could take the easy way out and pick-up dinner each night, but I want my kids to eat right and learn how to cook themselves.
My favorite things to cook
I love to grill and bbq. Pork spareribs, steaks, sausages and chicken. I also love to bake, muffins, cookies and just started making breads and rolls.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is a fun time. Always a lot of fond memories and good recipies to pass along.
My cooking triumphs
I was traveling for work in Chicago. My boss told me about a dish at a local restaurant that I just had to try. I did and when I got back home, I found the recipe online and recreated it for my boss...he still talks about it to this day.
My cooking tragedies
Not too many to recall. It is usually when I start to make a meal and realize that I am short on ingredients that just the day before were in the house...that sucks.
