I'm the Customer Relations Manager for a large retailer. After a day of all the whiners and moaners I come home wanting to cook as that is my stress relief!! I started cooking when I was 5 when my grandma had given me a child's cookbook. I love to cook for my family and friends!! I am also a certified judge for the KCBS and enjoy judging all the BBQ contests especially the American Royal and Great American BBQ contests which are held in Kansas City!!
