My wife and I share the cooking duties. She's much more creative than I. My strength is conceptualizing a meal and building around a recipe.
My favorite things to cook
I love preparing Enchiladas as well as various Italian dishes. When the warm weather prevails, grilling is a true enjoyment.
My favorite family cooking traditions
At Christmas time, my parents would prepare pound cakes and use the old fashioned pans rather than the Bundt-style ones. The cakes always came out flavorful and moist.
My cooking triumphs
Recently I prepared a Minestrone soup in the crock pot which came out fabulous. We actually ate the leftovers, rather than discarding.
My cooking tragedies
Beef Wellington comes to mind along with Cristmas day Croissants from scratch.
