I love to cook, although I usually only cook for company. I also love to eat and drink, especially Greek food! As my profile shows, I like more exotic foods, but I take shortcuts whenever and wherever I can.
My favorite things to cook
Enchiladas, beef stroganoff, Greek dishes, like roast lamb and dolmades and basically anything with cheese.
My cooking triumphs
Making dolmades at home.
My cooking tragedies
I'd made the chicken poblano enchiladas that I submitted here at least a dozen times when we had important company over for a special lunch. Even though my wife nags me about covering the dish with foil, I've never done it and never had any problems until this one time. I went into the kitchen to find that my enchilada casserole had burned on the top. :( Fortunately, my wife pitched in on the damage control and we were able to quickly peel the burnt cheese off the top, add a new layer of other cheese and pop it back into the oven to melt the cheese on the top again for a few minutes. We served it, with no one the wiser, but then found out the one person didn't like mushrooms. So, he ended up with a pile of mushrooms (fortunately, I didn't chop them very fine) on the side of his plate, but still said it was yummy!
