Happy husband, 3 grown children, Army vet.
Cooking is a favorite hobby. Also carpentry, camping, shooting, photography, the theatre, concerts (mostly country-my wife is a big fan).
My favorite things to cook
Anything on the grill-steak, fish, kabobs.
Asian-egg rolls, stir-fry, kung pao pork.
Seafood, especially scallops and crab.
Serving a different wine with each course.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Dad's West-Philly homemade ice cream.
My Mom's Sticky Buns.
My cooking triumphs
My version of Rufus Valdez' world champion chili.
My cooking tragedies
A kung pao pork, made with fresh red peppers from my garden, that was way too hot.
