About this Cook
I started cooking at 13, because I had developed a taste for Chinese and Thai cuisine, but wasn't really able to go to a restaurant all the time... and for some reason my parents were reluctant to eat our three times a week. (grin)
My favorite things to cook
Middle Eastern foods; Chinese foods; Thai foods (except noodles. Bleah). Indian foods; French specialties (thanks Julie.. and Julia..) Some baking, but mostly main dishes and crock pot stuff. Fred's Marinated Tri Tip!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turducken or Roast turkey on the holidays; I do all the prep and cooking, my brother gets to clean up after! Corned Beef for St Patricks Day; Marinated Tri-tip on the 4th of July, and for parties.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken Kiev, Turducken (yeah, that's right!) Corned Beef in Guinness, Pork Tenderloin Chili (no beans), Sourdough Cheese bread, Dolmas, Hunters Meatballs in sauce, Baked whole salmon, various appetizers. Fred's Marinated Tri Tip!
My cooking tragedies
Chocolate chip cookies; I have used the same recipe for 15 years, and had one batch that for no reason I could tell, spread out into two VERY thin "cookies"... over each entire cookie sheet. My brother saw my face when I opened the oven and started to laugh, because I looked so shocked.

Guinness(R) Corned Beef
This is a superb recipe. I had never added brown sugar before! Personally, I like the slightly bitter taste of Guinness only, but my family found it a bit too strong. I cut the brown sugar back to 3/4 of a cup, and my friends and family loved it, while I still got a certain amount of bite. I also switched to a crock pot,cooking for 8 hours, and added small potatoes and baby carrots with some onion slices two hours before it was finished.
