I'm lucky enough to have parents who taught me to try & appreciate all kinds of foods from all over the world. I grew up in Terceira, Acores, Portugal most of my young life. I've been to Germany & England & a lot of the USA. My family, friends, & coworkers get to enjoy the fruits of my labors when it comes to my love of cooking. I'll pretty much try cooking or baking anything. And I have a propensity for collecting anything for the kitchen, so I'm well armed, LOL. C'mon over to my house, Mi Bodega!!
