I began cooking about 5 or 6 years ago and found that I not only loved doing it, but I was amazed at the variety of meals I was preparing. From Italian to Barbecue and most everything in between. I live with my wife in the Tampa Bay area and often cook breakfasts for a group of guys in one of our beautiful parks. About the only food I haven't gotten accustomed to is liver. Can't stand it.. wife loves it.
