I am your typical thirtysomething, overweight, obsessive-compulsive software engineer (read: geek) with bad hair, bad teeth and a deeply-rooted love of God.
I am also a bit of a redneck, and will happily go shooting at the range, hunting or fishing instead of the myriad things I probably should be doing instead.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking in general, but I have to say, Corn and Chicken are probably my two biggest fascinations. The former because of the immense number of uses it has, and the latter because it is an open canvas for me to apply whatever flavor palette I fancy.
My cooking triumphs
I think one of my biggest moments was my Stroganoff. It's stupidly simple, but the flavors are knock-you-down good, and I basically stumbled onto the flavor profile for it. It's been a long time becoming refined down to its most basic and essential elements, but it's probably one of my bigger moments where I thought, "wow, I can actually do this. I can COOK!"
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list. Those poor chicken drummettes... *shakes head*
