Hello! I am the husband to my wife and father to my boy and girl, singer, songwriter, and enjoy cooking as a hobby (and even a stress release). Although I'm not formally trained, I can do more than boil water. Going out to eat becomes less and less pleasurable, the more I learn...I find myself thinking, "I can make this...And it won't cost $18.95!" SO - I learn to make it through trial and error, and maybe get some help from the folks at 'zaar! :) My wife and I make our own pizza, our own espresso drinks, and bake our own bread, thanks to recipezaar! I love this site - there's so many new things I'd like to try!
