My main goal in cooking is to learn to cook something better than I have experienced in a restaurant, using fresh ingredients, for an overall far lower cost.
I have three kids, one vegetarian, one a little picky, one who will eat anything!
My favorite things to cook
Tailgating food, Asian food, seafood, British food (made better!)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Usually involve a potluck family celebration - everyone tries to outdo each other with awesome contributions, and bringing what they do best. This is where I get most of my new recipes (or my versions).
