Food is my creative outlet. I'm a Sales professional the NEEDS to get in the kitchen after a day of numbers/spreadsheets and data crunching to create beauty in a tasteful meal. Not much of a baker, but enjoy a bite of desert every now and then. Love this site as it has numerous great new recipes and ideas.
My favorite things to cook
Asian, Medeterranian, Italian and Salads. Sauces, rubs and marinades are my favorites which add exceptional flavor to ordinary meats and veggies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Plant a salsa garden every year so we are able to can about 9 1/2 gallons of our own OOOHHH Doggy Salsa annually. Cannng is a favorite. Needless to say, Spring and Fall are busy times for us.
My cooking tragedies
Flying Pumpkin Cheesecake -- don't ask :?)
