About this Cook
I call myself a "google chef" because I started out by googling whatever recipe I wanted to make and rolling with that. Now I get almost all my recipes from AllRecipes. I don't really know that much about cooking, but I follow directions really well. I'm getting comfortable enough in the kitchen to start making my own adjustments to recipes, which is I'm happy about.
My favorite things to cook
I make a mean apple pie from a recipe I found online; my mom claims that it is better than her mom's! In addition, I routinely make pizza for my friends from scratch that they love! When they go a while without it, they tell me that they miss "Mike Pizza"!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since I started really getting into cooking (and my aunt stopped hosting), I took on cooking a family Thanksgiving dinner. I don't know if 3 years is enough to call it a traidition, but it's on it's way!
My cooking triumphs
Cooking big holiday dinners solo is always a big triumph. My tangerine glazed turkey was a hit this year!
My cooking tragedies
Not really a tragedy per se, but my last attempt to make meringue was pathetic, Pie was okay, but more or less was kind of a waste.

Sunset Sangria
This recipe is so very good! My girlfriend and I love it! Its only real downside is that it seems to just evaporate so quick!
