I am an avid amateur cook. I like big bold flavors. To quote chef Chris Schlesinger, "Subtlety in food does not impress me." I often have to subvert this love to some extent to cook low fat/low calorie meals, but I do the best I can even then. I have a Bradley smoker that I love. I am soon (5/2007) to embark upon a kitchen remodel. Wish me luck.
