I live in the healthiest state in the nation good old Colorado! I manage a little downtown shop in our town of Colorado Springs. And my favorite thing in the world to do is cook for my friends and family! Of course why else would I be here. I love good food or what some would call "gourmet" food...I just call it everyday food and wouldn't eat anything else! I love restaurants and devote journals to writing everything good and bad about the restaurants that I eat in...some of my "reviews" would not be appreciated by the chefs, but I tell it how it is! I despise going to restaurants and paying money for food that I can simply make at home. I am so happy to find this website, because I have been attempting to count calories, but I find it impossible with all of the crazy things that I enjoy making...now it looks like there is going to be a way for me to do this and continue doing what I love which is COOKING!
