I'm a husband and father of 2 active boys, all of whom (thankfully) share my desire to try new things, including new foods. I love to see the faces of my boys and wife light up when I try something new and it turns out well!
My favorite things to cook
I especially love to grill -- meats, vegetables, and side dishes. I treat my grill like an outdoor oven. I also love to cook soups of all kinds.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I traditionally fix a big breakfast on the first day of school for the kids. I can't think of other cooking "traditions".
My cooking triumphs
Barbequed ribs, pork roast, chicken monterey, various soups.
My cooking tragedies
Shark steak (aka -- shoe leather) and "aromatic" rice (aka -- stinky styrofoam chunks). Thankfully, that particular meal was many years ago!!!!
