I write this blog for the beginner cook, but the recipes are not just for beginners. Everyone was a beginning cook at some time, and I hope I can answer a lot of the questions you might have. I love to cook and bake, and I want to share my enthusiasm. Cooking is truly my passion, and I want to help you make it yours. I have been in the kitchen end of the restaurant business for about 20 years, and my favorite thing to do in the kitchen is teach others how to cook. I want to help you find that place I find when I cook and bake~a place where I belong, where I feel totally at home, a place where I know I am doing what I was put here to do. This is my place, my niche, where the only limit is my imagination. I hope this blog inspires you and helps you find your passion.So, let's get cookin'!!
