About this Cook
Married since 2003, my wife and I have 3 wonderful children together. When it comes to meal times, I'm the guy in charge. I take my cooking duties seriously, because by creating good meals for the family we spend time at the table and it saves money (we hate fast-food). I enjoy this particular website because of the tools it provides for menu-planning, grocery shopping, and of course - the Great Recipes. Connect with me on Facebook:
My favorite things to cook
I love Indian food, but it is a rarity because of the kid's preference against it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Oatmeal cookies with grandma Shirley.
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate cake from scratch, including the frosting. Awesome!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip
For fuller flavor - make it a two day project. On Day 1, slow cook your meat and then refrigerate overnight. On Day 2, make your rolls and reheat the meat. The taste is off the chart. My family and I liked them the first day; we loved them the second. Take my advice and you'll see how great tasting these french dips can be.

Creamy Ice Coffee
Sal - thanks for a great beverage recipe; same great taste as the local coffeehouse (minus the steep price). Like DONAGOTT, I made this cold drink without the liquer and it turned out swell.

Cod Fish Cakes
Great tasting; I followed NESMAR's advice in his/her review, which I believe was extremely helpful in improving this great recipe (especially the tip to coat in seasoned flour mixture before frying (white flour, seasoning salt, black pepper and paprika); good advice.
