I live in Eugene, OR with my DH and 4 year old son (OMG, how did THAT happen?). Cook and ex-restaurant manager and owner. Have worked in every kind of kitchen, in every position...tho' washing dishes wasn't my favorite! Have cooked and served everything from BBQ and Tex-Mex to an Italian - Mediterranean fusion with a steak house and brew pub thrown in for fun!! Now a stay-at-home mom and photographer. I don't have a favorite cookbook anymore...Thanks to Recipezaar, they are all on the shelf, collecting dust!! I love cooking for my family and friends, I love anything that has to do with my son (ok, maybe not the potty training). I love baseball and football (mostly baseball) especially watching it with my family while eating great food... We love to camp (especially the cooking!) and we love the beach.
