From the heart of Steeler Country, I have fun feeding family (2 young boys) and friends. Lots and lots of friends during the football season (I did mention Steeler Country right?). Happiness is a big brother to drive you where you need to go... I am partial to grilling and smoking (probably partly because it's an excuse to be outside) but enjoy all cooking except pastries and breads (I'm an expert in the art of making hockey pucks). I am an avid angler (trout mostly). I follow Steelers football and Penguins hockey religiously. The Pirates have sucked since I was a kid so baseball doesn't get any love in this family. :) I work as a technical consultant for a software company and my wife is a stay at home Mom. I only review recipes I like, so yes, I give out a disproportionate number of 5 star reviews. I don't see the value in bashing a recipe that just doesn't suit my taste. It doesn't benefit anyone. Thanks for checking out my AM page!
