Currently transitioning back to the United States and love finding things to cook! I've been using this site for 3 years now and I completely love everything about it! I've been cooking since I was 8 years old. I didn't do a lot of it as a kid, but developed a knack for it once I moved out of my mom's house and was living on my own. I wasn't a big fan of "chow hall" food, so I started cooking for myself and one of my best friends. It was my version of peppered steak. My mom always told me that the "way to a man's heart is through his stomach." Well, I guess I took that to heart and started cooking more for the man in my life. Now I've realized that I truly enjoy cooking, coming up with new recipes and sampling others that I can cook and eat just about anything.
