My name is Steve. I am a Marine currently stationed in San Antonio, Texas. I have been cooking all my life but have found a new joy in cooking to suit my more active lifestyle. Always open to ideas, stories, or complaints.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook has to be steak. It is unfortunate that most people think of steak as only grilled. However, steak, pan-seared, is my favorite approach because it allows you to truly manipulate the flavors and keep things simple.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can't really remember any except cooking with beer... lots of beer.
My cooking triumphs
Every time I cook it's a triumph. For me, actually making time to cook for myself or others is difficult, well, a pain. I sometimes would prefer someone else do it, but it's too rewarding to give up now.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make bake something from random ingredients, just to see how it would turn out. I thought I was pretty clever. People in remote countries still use that recipe to make bricks for their houses.
