I love my husband, my dogs, my career and cooking! I have lived in two different parts of the US, and the cooking styles are very different. I am sick of chicken, I don't cook it much, we eat mostly beef, pork and shrimp. I am passionate about perfecting home cooked prime rib, that is a work in progress. I love to travel and experience the local restaurants. For me, a perfect meal would be at a mom and pop restaurant, ordering whatever the waitress tells you is the best and to shake hands with that owner to congratulate them on a meal well done. My pet peeves are overdone beef, snotty servers and anyone that cannot appreciate a bit of humor and/or sarcasm.
