Basic Cranberry Sauce

It is ridiculously simple to make your own cranberry sauce, and once you have homemade, you will never go back to the canned junk. Definitely add some booze (I either use a bit of red wine or bourbon depending on what's around) and also just a dash of red pepper flake (not enough to make it spicy, just a dash!)... this seems to take that cloying sweetness away, brings it back into savory. Also great dumped on brie and wrapped in puff pastry.

What Did/Does Your Dad Cook Best?

Spaghetti Carbonara. Bacon, hot pasta to cook the egg, parm, black pepper. I think it was his "bachelor dish" from way back that he would make to impress the ladies. This lady was impressed!

Spit in the Eye

The circles are the best part, fry them in butter next to the slices of bread, use salt and pepper too. I call them "toast hats" and put them on top when they're done.
