I'm a food nerd - I love to try new foods, new techniques, etc.  So if I find inspiration in something I eat somewhere, I try to duplicate it at home.  I also love the challenges of pairing - wine, beer or spirits - with a dish.

A few notes about how I use BigOven:

1) If I find a recipe that I want to try at some point, I will post it and add the tag "Untried."  As I try recipes, I will remove this tag and provide my honest review of the recipe.  If I make adjustments, I will include those in my review UNLESS no one has favorited or marked the recipes as try soon.  Then I will make adjustments to the recipe itself.

2) I love to get reviews - but I prefer some "meat" in the reviews.  For instance, "Great" or "Terrible" don't help any of us very much.  If you review my receipe, I'd love it if you include details on why you liked it or disliked it.  That will help others (and me) to adjust the recipe when we make it.

Steak - have a BGE (Big Green Egg) and absolutely love grilling on it.  (At some point I'm going to play around with smoking on it).

Italian food - my wife loves pasta and my memories of dining in Italy are some of the best food memories I have.

Asian food - I absolutely love the balancing of flavors in Asian food (or some American knock offs of Asian food).

Pizza - I finally found a good crust recipe and now have an outdoor pizza oven.  This could be dangerous...
