I am a middle market commercial banker in Nashville, TN. I love to cook and host friends. I am a huge sports fan, and I don't miss UK Basketball, UK Football, Chicago Bears and Chicago Cubs games!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook the most on my Big Green Egg! Ribs and butts are great on the egg, but steaks and burgers are fantastic as well! I have made some of the best pizzas that I have ever eaten on the egg, and I look to begin doing other things in the future. Inside of the house, I love to cook pasta dishes, casseroles and pies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family simply loves to eat! Much of our life revolves around UK and Chicago sports, so my favorite traditions usually take place around game days with friends and family members.
My cooking triumphs
Over the past two years, my team and I have cooked in the Music City Barbeque Festival. We have placed first in the seafood entry in 2010, where I made bacon wrapped scallops in a bibb lettuce cup, topped with a dot of spicy mayo and siracha. This year, I was most proud of winning third place in the rib category, which I consider the "Cadillac" of all categories within the competition. I hope to continue improving in the contest in years to come!
My cooking tragedies
I don't have any yet, but I will keep you posted!
