About this Cook
Not much to say, other than I'm an odd character. I'm a gamer, cook, handyman, like wood working, attending Renaissance faires, shooting sports, hate all ball sports, love my 9 dogs and 2 cats.. but most of all, I am in love with my wife / best friend, who enjoys most everything I cook for her.
My favorite things to cook
Almost anything, I like making breads, meatloaf, potatoes (fried, baked, or mashed). Country fried steaks, grilled steaks, steak kabobs.. Easy stuff in the slow cooker. I don't like chicken. dirty bird. Turkey is the best. I also like baking pies, with fruit or meat fillings. Pizza... I never knew my oven would reach over 500 degrees until I started making pizzas..
My favorite family cooking traditions
I cook the Turkey and Ham for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. I learned something several years ago about cooking turkey. I ran out and bought the turkey deep fryer and injection kit cooked what was possibly the best tasting turkey I had eaten, but what a mess it was. I then purchased a large electric roaster, big enough for a large turkey, injected it, rubbed it, and roasted what I now consider the best turkey ever, and no mess.
My cooking triumphs
There are a few, breads and pies usually turn out really good. My wife, just after we met, told me she didn't like meatloaf, so I made another dish for her, but insisted she at least taste the meatloaf. She is now hooked on it and tries to get me to cook it all the time.
My cooking tragedies
I haven't had any tragedies yet, there were some things that didn't turn out the way I thought they should, but were still edible... you can wash pretty much anything down with enough beer... LOL
