My Grandmother taught me to cook as soon as I was tall enough to reach the counter on a stool. I have worked in restaurants off and on my whole life. I just recently "retired" after 10 years with a very nice local restaurant and now I work in property management.I have been married for 25 years and I have a 14 year old son. Cooking will always be my passion and I really enjoy this site. The recipes here are vast and varried and I have enjoyed everything I have tried thus far.
