I was raised in the middle of 5 children. So cooking has always been a passion of mine. And since i am the only one out of my siblings that can cook you can imagine the cooking I do at all family functions. I love to take basic recipes and see what I can add to them. My grandmothers were the ones that showed me how to cook the old way, and by this I mean make alot and have left overs, I do not know how to cook in small amounts. The first job I had was a prep cook, at age 15, at a local university. So from there it just kept getting better. I have many recipes that I will be sharing with the world. I hope everyone has as much fun with them as I have.
