About this Cook
I'm an ex-Army guy thrown into the trenches of the kitchen as single dad a few years back. Found that I actually enjoy an apron and spatula almost as much as an M1A1 tank turret. Almost. If the spatula could shoot...
My favorite things to cook
Steak. Chili. Pot Roast. Curry Chicken. German dishes. Shepherd's Pie. Grilled veggies. Crazy casseroles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making them up as I go. Although my wife's German grandmother has inspired a few...German potato salad in particular.
My cooking triumphs
Aforementioned German grandmother loved my sauerbraten, spaetzle, and red cabbage with apples dinner celebrating her birthday. Thank God, I would have been crushed otherwise.
My cooking tragedies
Made custard and figured out as everyone was eating it that I had doubled the sugar. For some reason, no one seemed to mind.

BBQ NY Strip
Great marinade, but as one reviewer noted -- never, ever pierce the meat.
