My favorite things to cook
BBQ! I am a grilled steak of any sort master! And a marinade hint? STUBB'S MARINADES!! All of them are the best and soy sauce works wonders. Their BBQ sauces and basting stuff is awesome. I am glad I found that product because all other marinades I've tried never just made the meat taste any good on or off the grill. I also like to try new things that I haven't cooked before.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Always a turkey, Prime rib or ham on the holidays. I prefer the first two ;)
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I cook something that people like. I make a mean stroganoff, lasagna, taco soup, hot wings, ribs, chicken parm and the most awesome grilled steaks!
My cooking tragedies
Cooking white rice for a stir fry for the next day. Sat down to surf the net and forgot about the rice until 20 minutes later when it was black on the bottom, half way up the pan. No fried rice the next day. I have also tried many slow cooker pot roast recipes and find that the meat is always dry. :/
