I live in Ocean Beach, San Diego with my husband and our 16 mo. old daughter. We have the most wonderful restaurants here but don't get out often since the little one came along. We have the best burger place called Hodads! Miss that burger! I love to cook and look forward to getting new culinary gadgets for birthdays and xmas. My husband loves his hot sauce so he challenges me quite often to spice it up. I love a healthy meal as well as indulgence once in a while. I was a vegetarian for quite a few years and even a vegan for 1 year. (not to bash vegans, but I never felt so drained.) I love meat though and my husband would have dissed me if my meat eating was non-existant. Lucky for me I was a happy steak eater years before we met! My cooking skills I cannot rate however I add my own touch to any recipe and usually create my own specialties. I eyeball my ingredients when I cook so I am slow to post recipes. I add them when I cook them and take the time to measure. I look forward to a 5 star from you! I hope you enjoy my delights.
