My favorite things to cook
Anything and everything. I love grilling and trying new recipes. My grilling staples are meatloaf-burgers, grilled veggies and the freshest fish around with whatever marinade/sauce that inspires me that day
My favorite family cooking traditions
garlic, garlic and more garlic!
My cooking triumphs
A braised chicken with 40 cloves of garlic that was out of this world. I made a "gravy" out of the au jus and garlic that was unbelievable
My cooking tragedies
I once made my turkey chili (that I've been making since I was 12) with dried beans and even though I soaked them overnight and cooked them they were hard as rocks. We had to go out to dinner!
