Originally from Michigan, I recently retired from the Navy and now reside in Jacksonville Beach Florida. I am now enjoying some down time around the house. That includes landscape design and continually improving upon my herb garden. Living near the Atlantic Ocean, I enjoy surf fishing and on occasion, off shore fishing. Around the house, music and NPR related shows tend to rule the day. I enjoy conjuring up new and old cooking ideas and putting them to the test. A world traveler over the past 24 years, I have had the great privilege to sample the cuisine and culture of 18 countries worldwide that has helped shape my eclectic collection of recipes. I've been in and around the kitchen for as long as I can remember, always in trouble with Mom, my way out was to learn and earn my way out of the kitchen.... lol.. Now, it's an every-day affair, I am in and around every facet of all aspects of the culinary trait. Everyday is a day of learning for me, that is to say, regardless of what I know now, I have much to learn and I'm good with that.. I enjoy reading the recipes on the Zaar and on occasion, I post one or two also. I've much to share however, I am just too caught up in daily activities to spend time converting my files over to the Zaar at this time... Cheers, Hank aka Chuck Wagon
