I'm in my 40's, married to my wife, Jamie, for over 20 years. We have 5 wonderful children. I have always loved to cook but have become very serious about my cooking. I have catered my own daughter's wedding and now do catering occasionally on the side. I am a cooking show and cookbook addict. It drives my family crazy.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Asian, Italian, and American. I also love to BBQ. I am always looking for new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother fried chicken once a week. She passed away 18 years ago and when I eat good fried chicken, I think of her.
My cooking triumphs
Homemade toasted ravioli. (My family will not eat it out of the box anymore.) Deep Fried Turkey (A family tradition)
My cooking tragedies
When I first started cooking, I had a recipe that called for chili pepper. I used crushed red pepper instead and my family could not stop drinking water.
