About this Cook
I'm a graduate history student at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. One year left until I go for my PhD! Whew!
My favorite things to cook
Anything BBQ, especially if it involves lots of spices. Indian food is great too becaues you get to use lots of exotic flavors. There's something about toasting and grinding spices with a mortar and pestle that I just love.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family are bakers...at least the women are. The men just kind of scrounge around for anything they can find. I'm one of a kind!
My cooking triumphs
Every time I cook something for my wife and she thinks I'm the best cook in the world is a triumph for me.
My cooking tragedies
I made some black bean soup that called for a 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro. I didn't have any so I just used some dried cilantro from my spice rack...That worked real well. It was completely inedible, but was a good lesson.

Artichoke Chicken
This recipe definitely fell short of my expectations. I think I would have called it mayonnaise chicken because it definitely drowned out the flavors of the parmesan and artichokes. The chicken WAS really moist and had a great flavor, but I think if I made this again I'd try it with some cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup instead of the mayo.

Indian Chicken Curry II
Great! I added 3 new potatoes, but I think I'll leave out the tomato paste next time. Maybe could use a little more coconut milk...a work in progress for me!

Indian Style Basmati Rice
Tasty, simple, and fluffy. I used 1/4 of an average size onion. I think I'll add some frozen peas next time.
