Hi, I live in Orlando, Fl., though I'm originally from the Atlanta area. I'm truely southern and most of my cooking experience has been in the traditional "fried or barbqued" area. Lately I've been trying to change that. When my DH told me I could do other things besides fry and bbq, my reply was "Like what?". I am learning many other things to do now. I work third shift for a local retailer and really enjoy it. For fun, my DH and I cook, garden and really enjoy our two dogs.
