My best work is basically cooking a decent dinner for my wife and I. Nothing that I cook I can really claim as a signature dish, my wife's favorites are chicken parm, enchiladas of various types and soups based on homemade stock [ Roast Garlic Tomato Soup
] A number of folks are impressed with my chicken habanero chili and my seafood quiche.
I don't mean to sound like an arrogant bragger, but I did get a nice little ego boost at a party a few months ago. I sauntered in with a warm, fragrant seafood quiche in a 9 x 13 pan, made room for it on the main table. The host and I went into the kitchen to get a serving utensil ( which I usually bring myself, but forgot) and the first glass of wine for myself. We were in the kitchen maybe 4 - 5 minutes yakking about stuff, pouring wine, came out with suitable utensils, the quiche was already 80% gone. The only thing that disappeared faster was this one fellow's flan - incredibly rich, creamy, sweet - good stuff!
