I live in Colorado near some of the most beautiful mountains in the world. I could never find an artistic outlet,(can't play a musical instrument, dance, sing or paint)... until I realized cooking was creative. Have cooked in restaurants for the last 25 years, but am presently working as assistant kitchen coordinator at a homeless shelter. It is really a challenge. Instead of ordering what you need...you work with what you have. My passion is camping,(and cooking),in the mountains.
