About Me
I am a mining engineer from Missouri. I am currently working as a sales engineer for a company that manufactures aggregate processing equipment. I love to cook and entertain for family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook something new. I prefer slow cooker, soups and stews, and stove top meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cookies have always been a mainstay for our family. When I am at my parents house we always stop working at 10am to eat cookies.
My cooking triumphs
For the last two years I have been one of the Gourmet Guys at the Friends of the Library fundraiser. I also won the company soup contest with a White Chicken Chili.
