I was the kid who all through high school that would come home after football or baseball practice, and want to help my Mom in the kitchen. I love to cook! I grew up not knowing what food from a box tasted like, and to this day do the best I can to use local, fresh, and organic ingredients from my vegitables to my meats. When I'm not in the kitchen experimenting, I love writing music, working on cars, and just being around good friends and family. I love entertaining, good food, some good beers, and a great ballgame. To me that's as good as it gets!
