How is everyone doing?   It's been a while!  I'm still cooking and getting considerably better thanks to a few classes I've signed up for in the evenings (well that and practice, practice, practice). So right now I'm on a mission to figure out how to make the perfect steak.  Many people will… MORE

About Me
I'm an I.T. professional by day and an aspiring cook by night. It's not as spectacular as a superhero, but, I don't have to wear spandex either (it chafes). I'm married to a wonderful woman who is gracious enough to try even the most horrid of culinary mistakes I make.
My favorite things to cook
At this point in time, I am sticking with staples while I experiment with techniques.
My cooking triumphs
I've finally heard it... "These are the best wings you've ever made.... they might even be the best wings I've ever had!"
My cooking tragedies
I don't have tragedies.... I just have a whole lot of learning experiences.
