About this Cook
I am a Renaissance Man -- I am a scientist, I love working out, I am a pretty good photographer and painter, I am into music, and I LOVE to cook!
My favorite things to cook
I do some great Chinese dishes, an anise-scented beef pho that is to die for, and Jamaica-style jerk chicken that will have you swearing you've moved to Kingston. I also love doing home-made desserts like peach cobbler and key lime pie from scratch, and I'm always on a quest for a really good basic bread recipe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom was a Home Economics teacher for 20 years; I know my way around the kitchen, and I am PROUD to say I learned from Mom! Also, I make a pomegranate sauce that is absolute HEAVEN when paired with turkey on Thanksgiving Day. You can have your cranberries; I'll take pomegranate every Thanksgiving until I die!
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting my pomegranate sauce; people RAVE.
My cooking tragedies
I have had more than my fair share of hockey pucks that were supposed to be bread...

Grilled Chipotle Sweet Potatoes
I love spicy food, and in several magazines I kept seeing good things about sweet potatoes. This recipe makes a great combination of both things! Plus, my girlfriend avoids sugar, so this recipe was a winner on that count too. A couple of suggestions: First, you could cut down the salt without hurting the outcome any. Second, watch your grill temp -- if you don't pay attention you will burn one side of your fingerlings RIGHT NOW.
