What to say about me. I have traveled Europe and Turkey extensively and found that my favorite meals were in the Mediteranian. But I love a good all American BBQ. Life is an adventure and I live it to the fullest. Nothing is too trivial to enjoy or too big to take on. I had a Liver transplant Sept 21, 2001 that was very sucessful. It was a happy time when I was back to cooking more often. Actually getting back to living more often!!! I love cooking for large groups which is rare these days. Cooking is great therapy. I cook even when no one is hungry and I have to save it for later! I LOVE cookbooks. Just about any kind. I end up with a stack of them next to my bed because I browse through them before I go to sleep looking for ideas for the next day or so.
